How to calculate calories (burned)
The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:
- the exercise you do
- your weight
- the time spent doing the activity
By multiplying the body weight in kg by the MET (*) value and duration of activity, you can estimate the energy expenditure in Kcal specific to a persons body weight. In this example, doing yard work (vigorous effort) at a 6 MET value, burns 6 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.
A 70 kg individual doing yard work (vigorous effort) for 30 minutes expends the following:
(6 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (30 min/60 min) = 210.0 Kcal.
6 is the value in METs for doing yard work (vigorous effort).
(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
