Exercise

Do you burn more calories if you run 1 mile in 4 minutes than you would if you ran the same distance in a longer time?

The answer is no. Calorically, they are the exact same. The only difference is the faster you run, the more anaerobic the run becomes meaning you are fueling your body with more glucose (ATP) as opposed to oxygen (aerobic). Muscularly, sprinting will develop fast twitch muscle which are powerful and big but lack endurance. Walking or jogging develops slow twitch muscle which are lean and stamina packed. That's why sprinters in the Olympics look jacked and long distance runners look super skinny and defined.

You would burn about 200 calories by walking for 60 minutes. About how many calories would you burn if you walk for 15 minutes


I would estimate you burn appoximately 600 calories per hour after the first 5 minutes. Burning at a higher rate the longer you stay in.



It usually comes down to whatever is harder. If you run 5 miles in 40 minutes and give it everything you have, you burn a lot more calories than you do walking for 60 minutes. Just another tidbit, Sprinting burns a lot more calories than long distance running. Sprinters can be burning calories up to 3 days after a workout. The faster you run, the harder it is so therefore the more calories you burn so you would burn more calories running 5 miles in 40 minutes vs pacing yourself and doing it in 60


A person weighing 150 pounds would burn around 15.3 calories in 3 minutes.


it depends on how many crunches you do for the 10 minutes..but if you walk for 10 minutes you wil burn a lot more calories than you would doing crunches.


Under these conditions running for 40 minutes burns 40 x 14 = 560 calories


The road distance is 3.3 miles - taking about 14 minutes by car, according to Google Earth. However - walking would be a short distance, but would likely take longer !


You would burn about 50 to 60 calories in a 20 minute walk.


At a steady speed of 10mph you would lose approximately 2,700 calories.



5 minutes of high-intensity aerobatics can burn 45 calories.


Calories burned while exercising vary person to person, but a person who weighs 150 pounds would, on average, burn 414 calories in an hour of swimming. So, for 10 minutes, this translates to about 69 calories burned.


8 light-minutes would be the distance light travels in 8 minutes. That is (8 minutes) x (60 seconds / minute) x (0.3 million km / second), or 144 million km. - the approximate distance from Sun to Earth.8 light-minutes would be the distance light travels in 8 minutes.

The answer depends on compared to what? Compared to driving at 50 km per hour, the braking (not breaking!) distance would be longer, compared to 200 km per hour it would be longer.



Depending on which way you would like to go it's between 340 and 380 miles and is about 30 minutes longer to drive the shorter distance.


How many calories you would burn running 10 k would depend upon your weight, age and the speed at which you are running. You could burn about 1,000 calories running that distance.


You burn more calories per minute of exercise running than walking. However, if you run a set distance the workout is done a lot faster than if you walked the same distance. It's usually pretty much a draw between a short and high burn or a longer lower burn. It would make more sense to ask if you would burn more calories by running or walking for a half an hour. You would clearly burn more calories by running for a half an hour than by walking for a half an hour. But walking would be much gentler on your joints, while running might be better cardiovascularly.


No. It would take it longer to get from here to there, but only because it would have to travel a longer distance, not because its speed would change.


You'll need to keep it up for 50 minutes to burn about 100 calories. So that would be 2 calories per minute. =)


When it comes to burning calories, your heart rate is much more important than what it is that you are doing.If you can reach and sustain the same heart rate for the same amount of time you will burn pretty much the same amount of calories regardless of activity.Sprinting would get your heart rate up higher than running, so for the same period of time, sprinting would burn more calories.If you measure by distance instead, it's usually pretty much a draw. Sprinting use more calories by time, but you travel faster, so you're done sooner. Running use less calories by time, but you need to keep at it longer.Most people woulds use up more calories by running, because they're able to keep at it longer.


If you were to do situps for a continuous ten minutes vigoursly you would burn 90 calories.
