Calorie Burn: Beach Volleyball

Enjoying a friendly game of volleyball at your favorite beach on a beautiful sunny afternoon may not seem like an intense workout, but according to Harvard Medical School, beach volleyball is an excellent way to burn calories quickly.

A 155-pound person will burn 298 calories during a 30-minute game, while a 185-pound person will burn 133 calories. Should the game take a competitive turn, the same two individuals will burn an extra 45 to 50 calories each.
