How Many Calories Does A Burpee Burn?

Burpees and Energy Expenditure The amount of energy expended (or calories burned per minute) varies according to: Your weight: The amount of calories burned by your body does not depend on your weight alone, since a higher bodyweight requires (relatively) more energy expenditure to move. Intensity of physical activity/exercise. Your metabolism. Your level of physical… Read More


How Many Calories Does a Press-up (Push-Up) Burn?

Introduction Estimates of exactly how many calories a single press-up (or push-up) burns vary somewhat, from about 0.29 calories each to 0.36 calories per press-up, depending on the research you cite (Cohen, 2012; McCall, 2017). However, a 2014 study from researchers at Arizona State University (Vezina et al., 2014) (and based on an earlier thesis… Read More

Obesity Management: Linking Sedentary Threshold & Energy Expenditure

Research Paper Title Posture Allocation Revisited: Breaking the Sedentary Threshold of Energy Expenditure for Obesity Management. Abstract There is increasing recognition that low-intensity physical activities of daily life play an important role in achieving energy balance and that their societal erosion through substitution with sedentary (mostly sitting) behaviors, whether occupational or for leisure, impact importantly… Read More

Weight Management Studies: Comparing DLW with TEE

Research Paper Title Establishing energy requirements for body weight maintenance: validation of an intake-balance method. Background Experimentally establishing a group’s body weight maintenance energy requirement is an important component of metabolism research. At present, the reference approach for measuring the metabolizable energy intake (MEI) from foods required for body weight maintenance in non-confined subjects is… Read More
