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, descending stairs at a 3.5 MET value, burns 3.5 Kcal/kg x body weight/h.
A 70 kg individual descending stairs for 20 minutes expends the following:
(3.5 METs x 70 kg body weight) x (20 min/60 min) = 81.7 Kcal.
3.5 is the value in METs for descending stairs.
(*) MET - Metabolic equivalent
