Squash Calories Away

2011 US Open Squash Tournament
Turns out that squash isn't a just a great way to cut back on your carb intake. It also burns crazy amounts of calories - squash the sport, not the vegetable.

When playing squash, you’ll burn 1020 calories an hour (or 17 a minute, or 0.283 a second).  That makes it one of the healthiest sports in the world. 
Surprised? So was I! I knew interval training burned a ton of calories but I didn't realize squash was so high up there. 

Looking for some more activities to torch calories? Rock-climbing, swimming, rowing and cross-country skiing were also in the top five

  2. Two people in my company had serious injuries while playing squash, so I am shying away from it and sticking with my treadmill routine.
