In fact, dancing is the best thing you can do to keep active while in quarantine. Cumbia (217/189 calories), Jazzercise (200/175 calories), Ballet, Modern, Jazz, (167 calories), and Salsa, Flamenco, Swing (150/131 calories) are 5 of the 6 best homebound calorie burning activities.

Those who enjoy gardening will be happy to hear that felling trees (177/154 calories) and chopping wood (150/131 calories) are two of the best calorie-burning activities to do while homebound. However, light yard work only burns about 100 calories for men and 87 for women per 30 minutes.

If you thought sex could keep you fit while in quarantine, think again! Men can only expect to burn about 60 calories in 30 minutes while women will do away with about 53. This is about the same amount of calories you'd spend washing your car.
