How many calories are burned by doing push ups?
The answer is 638 calories per hour. So measure how many minutes you are doing them and divide accordingly. Every minute you burn about 10.63 calories. I figure for every 100 pushups you would burn about 100 calories.

actually it depends on the person's weight, obviously but that is all i know right now.

It depends how long it takes to do those pushups. If you do 50 pushups in one set or a few sets (2 or 3) you will burn about 500 calories. This assumes that you are of an average weight... that being about 150 pounds. If you weigh more, it will burn a larger amount; more towards 600. There is no wa…y you burn 500 calories doing 50 pushups. Not even close, you only burn about 350-400 riding a bike for a half hour; not a chance that doing pushups, nevermind only 50 of them, will burn 1/4 of your suggested caloric intake for the day.

Depends on the weight and metabolism of the individual. A 150 lbs man can burn 3-5 calories and a 250 lbs man burns 4-7 calories. As the workout continues the rate of caloric burn goes up in response to tiring muscles and fitness level.
You burn 1/2 a calorie by standing up. I thought of something cool btw, if you wanna burn those calories, stand up 100 times in a row BURNING 50 CALORIES! OMG!!!
by doing 10 push ups you burn 21 calories so by doing 1 its 2.1 and by doing a 100 you would burn a estimate of 210 calories. so doing 500 you would burn 1050, e.t.c.. by doing 10 push ups you burn 21 calories so by doing 1 its 2.1 and by doing a 100 you would burn a estimate of 210 calories. so do…ing 500 you would burn 1050, e.t.c.

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.

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.
Calories burned varies on sex, age, and activity level, but 50push-ups at 80 lbs. should burn at least 40 calories.
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 ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
\nIf you were to do situps for a continuous ten minutes vigoursly you would burn 90 calories.
There are alot of factors there.. 1 - Weight of the chair plus the person in it. 2 - Type and size of the wheels. 3 - Surface the person is on. 4 - The bearing in the wheels
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.
energy = force * distance, so energy = mass * acceleration due to gravity * distance. Say you press 100kg through 0.5m for 10 reps (near the surface of the Earth): energy =100kg * 10ms^2 *0.5m *10 reps. =5000 Joules 5000 Joules converts to 1.195 dietary calories. This is the minimum amount of en…ergy required to lift 100kg through 0.5m 10 times. But human muscles are only about 25% efficient, so multiply this by 4. Furthermore pushing weight at 80% of your max uses 12 times more energy than 20% of your max, i.e. your body is only a third as efficient when it is being strained, due to greater demands on your cardiovascular system and more secondary muscles coming into play. So it is fair to multiply the 1.195kcal by 12 to give about 14 as the number of kcal used during the actual set. Following the set you will have increased respiration and circulatory flow for a while, which uses further energy on top of this.. This is a sound way of solving a question like this. . However, I would be interested in solving the question a different way (and this might make a good high school project). . The calculation above takes . mass * acceleration * distance * reps * best muscular efficiency* 80% efficiency . So 100kg * 10ms^2 *0.5m *10 reps * 4 * 12. What if the muscular effiency is 30%, What if 80% effort results in 14 times more effort, not 12? Big differences result. . So how to test this. . Wear a heart rate monitor for 10 minutes to get a base line heart beat. Then do the set. Record the increase in heartbeat for the next 10 minutes (if the heart beat is not down to resting, use a long enough time frame that it does. Caluclate the energy used by the resting heart, and by the bench pressing heart. Various formulas are available on the internet. . Here is one that seems to be on a number of web sites. . Using VO2max Men: C/min = (-59.3954 + (-36.3781 + 0.271 x age + 0.394 x weight + 0.404 x VO2max + 0.634 x HR))/4.184 Women: C/min = (-59.3954 + (0.274 x age + 0.103 x weight + 0.380 x VO2max + 0.450 x HR)) / 4.184 Without VO2max Men: C/min = (-55.0969 + 0.6309 x HR + 0.1988 x weight + 0.2017 x age) / 4.184 Women: C/min = (-20.4022 + 0.4472 x HR - 0.1263 x weight + 0.074 x age) / 4.184 weight is in kg ( Full Answer )
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 very many, but doing all 100 of them in a row will give abs to your abs.. I don't know but if you want to burn calories jogging is a better way to do it.
Probably not many at all. Sustained exercise is what leads to significant caloric expenditure. ---Addendum: Not exact, and this assumes I've done my math right (and any high school physics student could probably correct me): Given you weigh about 200 lbs (or roughly 100 kg), and a rep is pulling y…ourself up by a foot (0.3 m) and back down by as much... it would take somewhere around 8 reps just to burn 1 calorie. Good for resistance, but not much of a calorie-burning exercise. ( Full Answer )
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)
You can burn a lot or a little. The length of time you are playing factors in. And how vigorously you play factors in.
The answer is surprisingly low. Pullups are difficult becausethey're engaging relatively small muscles, but in terms of energyexpended, it's roughly equivalent to walking up a single stair. The first part of the calculation is based purely on physics. Theamount of work done (or energy added to the s…ystem) during a pullup is the product of 3 factors: 1) Your weight in kg: I'm 70kg 2) Gravity, which you have to overcome: 9.81 meters per secondsquared 3) The distance you travel: Let's say 0.4m That gives us 275 Joules. We'll convert to calories in a bit. Your muscles, though, are not very efficient at moving your massaround. (Not all your muscle work moves your body perfectly, someheat is generated converting food to mechanical energy, which iswhy you get hot exercising.) Wikipedia says muscles are 18%-26%efficient. Let's use 22%. With 22% efficiency, that 275 Joules becomes 275J/22% = 1,250J.Unfortunately, you need 4200J to make 1 food calorie... So thatmeans doing a pull up has only burned 0.3 food calories! There's some simplification and you need to tailor the inputs toyour own body, but you're not going to get thin doing pull upsalone. If you want to lose weight, diet is a much more importantcomponent than exercise, especially anaerobic exercises likepullups. ( Full Answer )
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...
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.
Not very many. I don't know the exact number, but it's been estimated that one can burn only 3-5 calories a minute.
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 doingsit-ups …only, as most people won't have enough upper body enduranceto keep doing it fast and long. And it's dependent on weight,gender, age, fitness level etc. But let's say you can do sit-ups at a pace that gets you about assweaty and winded as if doing aerobics, then you'd need somethinglike 15-20 minutes of continuous sit-ups to burn around 200calories.

That'll still only take a few minutes, so it won't burn enough calories to mean anything.. The physics of it suggests it's less than a kcalorie of work, tho' that seems a bit low. So comparing the time it takes to a number of other gentle exercises, like strolling, I suspect it's about 10kcalories.… ( Full Answer )
(wieght in lbs) x (.096)= ( calories burned per min) x ( total min worked out) = calories burned
Depends on how long it takes you. Doing situps for 10 minutes burns 43 calories.
not sure how many calories it burns it probably depends on whether you do it fast slow, super set or tri set it all depends. if you're trying to lose weight on your midsection that's not the way to do it. you cannot target where you lose fat it's an overall process.if you just do sit ups to lose wei…ght in your midsection all you're going to do is build muscle behind the fat and push out your stomach more ( Full Answer )
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! (:
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.
you dont burn any. you are throwing up not working it off. if you say go for a run then your are burning calories off, but you make burn half of it. i know from my past if you eat something then go throw up then it seems like you ate anything but still you dont burn anything. please dont be throwing… up it cause a bad road ( Full Answer )
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.
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. ( Full Answer )
Depending on your height weight and build, you can burn 1-2 calories in one conventional ground situp
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!
That burns about 95 calories in a 30 minute stroll. For a more accurate calculation, try the Wolfram|Alpha link.
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.

5 min of pushups makes you lose 10 calories so im guessing you do it like ever 2 secounds so probally .5
an hour of pull ups you can only burn between 1 -2 per minutes 60 - 120 a hour the intensity is to low to get more even a musclebound man cannot do a straight hour of pull ups so you can see why the calorie burn is so low
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.
