Running, cycling and swimming are 3 types of exercise done by most of people. But what about the comparison of the three types of this sport?

Runing, biking and swimming are the most popular cardio exercise and almost everyone has access to do so. All these activities can provide a healthy body and an excellent calorie burner. To find the difference of all the three, then check out this comparison of three types of sports as quoted from Lifemojo:

The ability to burn calories
Running : calorie-burning exercise is the best among the others, one could burn 500-800 calories per hour
Bicycles : This sport generally burn calories as much as 350-650 calories per hour
Swimming: This exercise can burn 350-700 calories per hour

This makes sports pool great for people recovering from injury.
