# How many calories do you burn standing up for an 8 hour work shift?

###### Wiki User

'150 calories.....easily'...I think he means per hour. Merely standing through an 8 hour shift would burn ~800 calories (100/hr). Physical labor beyond just standing still would increase that number depending on the intensity and kind of work.
