We all want to get in shape when spring and summer roll around, so why not burn a few calories any way you can. The gym is not the only place you can get your exercise, in fact, a study shows that you can burn up to 3,655 calories while doing your spring cleaning in a span of a few days. Meanwhile, the average marathon runner burns between 2,500 - 3,500 calories. We can't tell which one we want to participate in more.
