The number of calories that are burned during exercise depending on weight and intensity. A 180 pound person doing 30 minutes of moderate stair running will burn 367 calories.

17 calories for 5 minutes - according to the 'LoseIt' app on iPhone.

About 100 calories, assuming the stairs are an average flight (about 20 to 25 steps).

The amount of calories a body will burn is dependant on how much stairs you climb, how vigorously you do it, and your bodies current level of stamina. Type this into google and I think there is a chart that lists the amount of calories burned over a set amount of time doing one activity. My experience with calories is that, even if you think you burned a lot of calories doing one activity, the actual amount you have burned is very small. (that was the case with me, I found out that 45 minutes of sprinting on a bike, only burned about 150 calories, but the amount will be different for you (hopefully higher then mine))

none, your crazy trying to run up that many stairs, fool!

Walking up one flight of stairs burn about 3-5 calories for the average person. Continued stair exercise is a great form of cardio workout and strengthens leg muscles.

The best way for you to burn lots of calories while running is to run up hills or at an incline. If that is not an option you can also run up and down stairs those provides a lot of burn calories.

2Another Q&A on this site says:Calories burned walking down 24 flights of stairs? 240That answer means 10 cal walking down 1 flight, which is 5 times this one. And both assume that we know how many steps and/or feet in a "flight", which is by no means standard!

roughly 12 to 13 stairs are in a regular American home...just by going up them once, possibly 5 to 10 calories are burned based on weight, metabolism, etc. (go to sleep!)you can burn up to 100 an hour by just sleeping!)

the longest time running up stairs is 10 min

The most direct way to burn calories fast is to take in fewer calories than you burn off. Increasing activity by taking the stairs, running, doing the eliptical are all quick ways to get rid of those calories.

The number of calories burned by this activities is dependent on your own weight and how quickly you are climbing. You can calculate the number of calories you burn using this formula: MET x 3.5 x weight in kilograms ÷ 200 x duration in minutes. The MET value for walking up stairs while carrying something is 9, while the value for running upstairs is 15.

You can consume as many calories as you like, depending upon the amount of time that you spend doing this exercise. But it may not be the best form of exercise for you, since there is a chance of falling and injuring yourself. Running on level ground is safer than running up and down stairs. Swimming is lots of fun and terrific exercise. There are lots of ways to exercise.

running, climbing stairs

a lot. i suggest going running or cycling or somehting as it is more fun and a change of scenery, stairs will get very boring!!!!

Going up, there are 9 stairs on the first flight and 10 stairs on the second, equating to 19 stairs per floor. As the WTC was 110 stories (minus one because you do not need stairs to the first floor), 109 x 19 = 2,071 Stairs. In loving memory of the 412 emergency responders who were running in while everyone else was running out. God Bless the USA.

Running up stairs will build the quads, upper front of the legs and the calves from the pushing while running up on the toes. Over all tone will be the results. Adding the return of going down the stairs will balance the musle groups. going up will equal doing lunges.

You burn about 100 calories when you run a mile. So, you're not burning much going up a flight of stairs.Cardio exercise such as brisk walking, running, and jogging, etc., when done correctly, is far more effective for fat burning than walking up a flight of stairs. For information about how to do cardio correctly, see the relevant page, further down this page, listed underRelated Questions.The above answer is true for "a" flight of stairs but if you're using that as a measurement point don't be discouraged; climbing stairs is in fact a great workout. According to one website, a 70-kg person (about 154 lbs) burns 10 calories per minute when ascending, and 7 calories per minute when descending, a flight of stairs. Therefore, if you climb up 10 sets of stairs (which will take an average of 5 minutes), you will burn 50 calories. That's more or less the equivalent of one slice of bread for a 5-minute workout. Pretty impressive.Well, I am not sure if I agree. According to physics Potential energy mass * gravity * height ascended. In this knowledge if a person is 75kg, one flight of stairs is 2m and gravity is 10 m/(s^2) then the energy you use up in climbing one flight of stairs is:75 * 10 * 2 1500 j = 636 calories. [ls this logic flawed..? Is there something this logic is missing?]The "flaw" in the above logic is simply that the "calories" that we talk about for nutritional purposes is actually a kilocalorie (kcal). So, your math on one flight of stairs is about .636 "calories" (nutritional). This is a pretty good approximation and consistent with your other numbers.In addition, when using physics to answer these questions, we treat the person as if he were just a particle (which is not the case), and in fact, you burn many more calories in the real world (the traditional introduction to this concept is how much one would have to climb to burn off 2500 kcal, which approximates to the height of Mt. Everest, although in the real world, we know you would burn many more kilocalories than that).

Running up hill or up stairs is a workout that will strengthen leg muscles and increase your speed in running.

i have never heard of it but i guess that you can go up and down the stairs a few times and burn alittle calories unless they have a weight room

Well, a playful spirit may run up and down the stairs, or maybe a child

By itself - not enough to make much of a difference. 6 flights x 8 times = 48 stairs. Say each takes 15 seconds, means you're done in 12 minutes. If it gets your heart going as if you'd been running hard, then it'd be maybe 100 calories tops. 100 cals is about 1/4 of a muffin. Now, if climbing those stairs gets you fit enough to do longer workouts, then it sure can be the ticket to set you on the right track.
