He’s also an avid adventure seeker.

If you’re not into choppers or raging waters, but rock climbing seems like an exciting way to burn calories, Eastwood posted a new video to Instagram showing just how exhausting the workout can be.

It’s estimated that this type of indoor rock climbing can burn anywhere from 500 to 900 calories per hour.

If you want to incorporate rock climbing into your exercise regimen, here are three workouts to try to crush some calories.

The workout Eastwood is performing in his video is Bouldering. Here’s how it works…

No rock climbing partner? No problem. If you’re heading to the rocks on a whim, bouldering, moving laterally across routes close to the ground without ropes or a harness, is the easiest way to get climbing. Plus, you’ll get a serious workout — fast — similar to high-intensity sprints or intervals.

Because it’s just you up there, the small, explosive movements needed to propel you from one hold to the next require the body to move and adapt in ways it’s not used to.
