Calories Burned Chart


How to use the calories burned chart:

  • Each lb column is your weight, and is the amount of calories burned per hour. Select the one that is closest to your actual weight to find the amount of calories burned for a given activity.
  • Some numbers are the same for different activities. This is because they are calculated estimates. The actual number of calories burned will vary, depending on many different factors. This information is a good guide, but is only approximate.¬†All data is from the Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise journal, the official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine.
  • Sort a certain column by clicking on the column header. Refine your search by clicking on a second column header while holding shift. So for example you might click on Outdoor, to find all the outdoor activities, and then on 130 lb to find the outdoor activity that will burn the most calories.
