Calories Burned Exercising

Calories burned exercising, list of exercises and how many calories you could burn performing them in specified amount of time
The amount of calories you could burn exercising is dependent on a number of factors such as the type of exercise performed, the intensity at which the exercise is performed and the amount of time spent performing the exercise.

Because of the difference in physiology, men naturally tend to burn more calories than women and in addition your age and weight can affect the overall amount of calories you could burn exercising.

Actual calories burned exercising can vary from person to person and the tables below are a guide to approximate calories a person could burn exercising  based on a woman weighing around 152 lbs and a man weighing around 185 lbs.

Remember to try to combine healthy eating with a sensible exercise regime to control your weight and keep your body toned.  Other benefits of exercising include reducing your risk of developing a range of diseases like heart-disease or diabetes and also helps to improve your overall mental well-being, boosting your mood and reducing stress levels.

The tables below indicate how many calories you could burn based on the type of exercise and amount of time spent exercising.  The tables are grouped into different types of exercises:  gym machines, indoor sports, outdoor sports, and everyday activities like walking, housework and gardening.  You’ll be surprised at how many calories you could burn performing simple exercises or activities on a regular basis.
