How many calories burned doing house work?
This is a great chart. Also to find how much you can eat and still lose weight use this: To calculate your daily calorie limit in order to lose weight, follow this formula. Take your target weight, multiply it by 4.35 and add 655. Take your height in inches and multiply it by 4.32. Take your age and multiply it by 4.7. Subtract the age total from the height total, then add the new total to your weight total. This number represents the amount of calories you can consume each day and still drop pounds Type of housework Calories burned per half-hour Doing laundry 73 Making the bed 68 Cooking 85 Washing the dishes 78 Ironing 78 Dusting 85 Sweeping 112 Vacuuming 119 Scrubbing the floors 129 Rearranging furniture 204 Yard work 170 Washing windows 102 Washing the car 102 Gardening 136 Mowing the lawn 187 Raking 146 Shoveling snow 204 Carrying a small child (up to 15 lbs.) up and down stairs 289

That depends on your metabolism. People with a high metabolism will burn quite a few calories, probably around 70-80. With a low metabolism, this number drops though.. Hmm, some say it depends how long it takes, and how much effort you use in addition to this. For sedentiary effort, you're looking …at around 254 cals in an hour. For greater effort about 560. (MORE)
A person burns 0.036 calories per minute per pound doing push up's.. A 150-lb. person would burn 5.45 calories per minute of push-ups.
Ok, that stuff was junk. You burn about .2 calories per sit-up for the average person. So in other words, 10 sit-ups burns 2 calories. If you're looking to lose weight, I suggest jogging, walking or running. Again based on the average weight and height 1000 sit-ups is equivalent to jogging, running,… or walking from around 2.5 to 3.5 mi. for the average person. Pick your poison. DO one of them for 17.5 days eating around the recommended amount of calories per day, and viola, you have lost a pound, though it also helps to switch out some foods, like eat an apple instead of a candy bar, trade in 2% milk for skim, eat vegetables to your meal, grill rather than fry. All these things will help. directly @topic: .2 calories (MORE)
You burn about 10 calories a minute if you don't stop :) hope this helps, I've done research! :XD
Sit-ups are essentially a muscle building exercise and not a fat reducing exercise. If you are doing sit-ups for calorie reduction, it is best to go for another form of activity such as cardio walking, running or jogging. Sit-ups, if done incorrectly or too quickly, can damage the lower back and cor…e muscles. Whilst it will tone your midriff, there are many far better calorie burners out there than sit-ups. . The link, below, gives an estimate of 4.8 calories per minute at that page's recommended pace. It should be noted that situps are essentially a muscle building exercise, not a fat reducing exercise. As such, it is not advisable to perform them at a "fast pace", as it may result in injury, and will not significantly reduce weight, regardless of pace. (MORE)
You burn 1 calorie per minute. Or in other words, you will burn 60 calories an hour and this is while sleeping. So if you eat 1400 calories in 24 hrs, and you burn 1400 calories every 24 hours, you'll stay at the same weight. So what you should do is try to burn 500 extra calories throughout the day…. By the end of the week, you will have burned 3500 calories, equivilent to 1 lb. of fat. Hope this helps you!! Melanie S. (MORE)
That depends upon your your degree of cardiovascular fitness, your weight, your age, your body composition and what cardio exercise you choose.
Insignificant. The point of exercise isn't the number of calories burned, but about toning muscle and getting EVERYTHING to work at a higher level. If you look at the calories burned for a specific type of exercise, it's a devastatingly small number. But if you look at the number of extra calorie…s that you'll burn by the end of the day following vigorous exercise, it's impressive. (MORE)
\nIf you were to do situps for a continuous ten minutes vigoursly you would burn 90 calories.
The number of calories that are burned doing nothing, also known as one's "metabolism", differs for each person but an average adult burns 2000 calories a day. You can increase your metabolism by doing endurance exercises such as swimming, running, or biking.
If your doing Yoga your not burning calories. Instead your adding flexibility in your self.
Yoga doesn't burn calories, it only add flexibility. It also influence on reducing stress and depression levels. Definitely worth doing without burning our extra calories.
Not sure where the previous responder gets his or her information. Yoga does burn calories. Sleeping burns calories. Does yoga burn lots of calories? Depends on what kind of yoga you do with how much intensity and for what duration. Balancing poses really raise your heart rate. Try saying suriya nam…askar B three times fast. Now try doing it. Your heart rate will skyrocket. The best way to judge the calorie burn (and now you're doing two things you shouldn't do in yoga, counting calories and judging), start with your own perceived effort. If it's a 7 out of 10, you're burning calories faster than you would walking for the same duration at a moderate pace. And you may be burning more than you would on an elliptical reading a magazine. Plus you will build stength, endurance, balance and flexibility all the while freeing your mind from the encumbrances of worrying about how many calories you're burning. (MORE)
The loss of calories in an individual is totally depends on the nature of work of an individual.When we are doing a cardio workout we should remember that the cardio exercise is for a minimum 20 minutes because it is related directly to the heart.In 10 minutes exercise we loss about 50-100 calories …during the exercise period.

Resting metabolic rate depends upon several factors including your age, height, weight and sex. An average 30 year old man might burn 1750 calories per day, while an average 30 year old woman might burn only 1350 calories per day. For more information, see the page link, further down this page, list…ed under "Related Links." (MORE)
It all depends on what type fo work out (weight, running, eliptical, swimming, walking, ect.) that you do, the intensity level of it, and for how long.
Well you wont burn as much as you think. My brother lifts weights for hours and only burns like 100 calories. However, if you build more muscle you burn more calories because muscle burns calories and increases your metabolism.
This depends on the type of sit-up. A flat lagged sit up will burn more calories than with knees up (just as one example)
All depends on the person working out. People burn calories faster or slower depending on their weight. For example if you weigh 100 pounds and another guy weighs 200 pounds he will burn twice as many calories as you. That's why you here of people who are like 400 + pounds losing like 200 pounds aft…er 9 months of working out. (MORE)
You can burn a lot or a little. The length of time you are playing factors in. And how vigorously you play factors in.
Right it is basic, you don't burn any. Basketball is a great sport but you can die from it, you're going for a slam dunk and then you hit you're head on the hoop...
well, to burn 100 calories you would have to do around 700 jumping jacks. It also depeinds on your level of fitness, body weight, and speed. So, let's say around 15 calories.
It depends on a variety of factors, including your age, weight, current fitness level, how high the resistance on the elliptical machine is set, how fast you are going... Just never trust what the machine tells you... they always over estimate.
somewhere between 700 and 1200 calories depends on weights you use and how into it you are as well as if you try to take break in between when your not supposed to
You take the amount you weigh in lbs and multiply it by .096, then with that number you get the amount of calories you burn per minute. Then you multiply that by the number of minutes you perform the exercise to get your total calorie burn rate. . (wieght in lbs) x (.096)= ( calories burned per min…) x ( total min worked out) = total . calories burned overall . (MORE)
It depends on your age, height, and weight. Also, the more exercise you do, and the higher your metabolism, the more energy you will burn just doing nothing. For example, a 21 year old female, with a height of 170cms and a weight of about 60 kilos, will burn around 5000 kilojoules a day, just throug…h metabolic processes. Of course, this may differ from person to person, depending on their lifestyle and amount of activity. There are plenty of websites available that roughly calculate how many calories or kilojoules you burn each day, with and without exercise. (MORE)
(wieght in lbs) x (.096)= ( calories burned per min) x ( total min worked out) = calories burned
The amount of calories you burn during physical activity depends on your weight and how strenuous the activity is.
Depends on how long it takes you. Doing situps for 10 minutes burns 43 calories.
Depends on how hard the ride is, your age, gender, size, fitness and more. But generally, 6 km will take about 20 minutes. so maybe 100-130 calories at a comfortable pace.
it's unknown but you do lose a lot of weight! trust me my mom did it and she burnt soo much calories and lost so much weight in one week! i mean she is 50 years old, so if she can lose that much weight then younger people can lose more weight faster than her! (:
At my own pace I'm burning anywhere from 600-800 calories per 45minutes. I'm 5'11" and weigh 197lbs.
check websites for calorie calculators but for a 150 lbs doing running at 5 mph you would burn 226.23 calories
It depends on how much you weigh. If you weigh 150 pounds and do step-ups vigorously for 10 minutes, you will burn approximately 162 calories.
Depends on how hard you go at it, and how long you keep doing them. And your age, and your gender, and your fitness level. Anything between 300-600 can be expected.
let me tell you a story about it, basically haha i'm joking, it burns 310-390 calories
104 calories are burned by doing only 12 minutes of step ups but I don't know about the number of step ups that is, hope I helped xoxoxoxoxox
"Hot Yoga" is a broad term describing a variety of yoga classes. Bikram yoga, perhaps the most widely known style, is mainly stationary so one would likely burn fewer calories than in perhaps a "Hot Vinyasa" yoga class. Calories burned also depends on the size and weight of the person in question. I… would say a good range would be 200-500. More importantly, the practitioner would be better off noticing how their body is feeling, how clothing fits, muscle tone and improved flexibility. (MORE)
You can burn up to 100-300 calories doing housework but this depends on your gender weight age height and what activities you do and for how long you do it for,
I have no idea but you would probably burn more if you go for for a 5 minute swim!
How much calories you burn depends on how long you use the ab ball and what exercises you do. It also depends on if you are using the ab ball correctly and to the best of your ability.
It would depend on the person that is doing the training. for example a larger person would sweat more than a smaller person (on average) so the larger person would burn more calories.
When it comes to burning calories, how hard and for how long ismuch more important than what you do. Pretty much all activitiesthat gives you the same increase in heart rate for the same timewill burn the same amount of calories. Now, it can be a bit difficult to get a good burn going doingcanoeing…, as most people won't have enough upper body endurance topaddle hard and fast and long. And it's dependent on weight,gender, age, fitness level etc. But let's say about 300 calories/hour. (MORE)
The number of calories that are burned doing exercises on the TotalGym will vary depending the person's weight and intensity of theworkout. Approximately 250 calories can be burned doing a vigorous30 minute Total Gym workout by a 200 pound person.
There's no set answer, it depends on how long and how hard you work out. Pushing hard, maybe 450 cals/hour.

It usually depends... A LOT. According to the commercials and recommendations. But the more Muscle you have the more calories you burn.
Depends very much on for how long and how hard you're doing theexercises, but about 400 cals/hour.
Not any important amount. When it comes to burning calories, how hard and for how long ismuch more important than what you do. Pretty much all activitiesthat gives you the same increase in heart rate for the same timewill burn the same amount of calories. Now, 75 knee highs won't take that long to… complete. Maybe 1.5minute if we're generous. And it's about as strenuous as aerobics. So if one hour of aerobics would use up 450-600 calories, 1.5minutes of knee highs will use up 11-15 calories. (MORE)
Depends on how hard and for how long you go at it. If you get and keep decently sweaty and winded, maybe 450 calories each hour.
