Someone weighting 70 Kg or 154.3 lb loading lumber burns 256.7 calories in 40 minutes. This value is roughtly equivalent to 0.07 pound or 1.17 ounces or 33.3 grams of mass (fat and/or muscle).

• loading lumber 3 times a week for 40 minutes will burn 0.88 pound or 0.4 Kg a month.
• loading lumber 5 times a week for 40 minutes will burn 1.47 pounds or 0.67 Kg a month.
• loading lumber every day for 40 minutes will burn 2.05 pounds or 0.93 Kg a month.

By using the calories burned calculator, you just need to fill some data and get the value of calories burned in Kcal.

## How to calculate calories (burned)

The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:

• the exercise you do
• 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, loading lumber at a 5.5 MET value, burns 5.5 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.

A 70 kg individual loading lumber for 40 minutes expends the following:

(5.5 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (40 min/60 min) = 256.7 Kcal.

(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
