    Body Combat - Calories burned?

    Hello all,

    I know it's all subjective to an individual but roughly how many calories would a female burn in a 60 minute Body Combat class?

    Thanks

    It's not very scientific, but find out your weight in kilograms, then add a 0 on the end for calorie burn.

    That's probably even less accurate!Big Smile

    Get a heart rate moniter and find out for sure. Its also a great way to stay in your target training zone.

    Re: Body Combat - Calories burned?

    I agree about the heart rate monitor. I use a Polar FT80 and it's awesome and I believe it's pretty accurate because it knows my height, weight, and resting heart rate. I'm female, 5'2" and about 125 lbs and the most I've ever burned teaching Combat is 520 calories. Depending on the mix/release it ranges from 460 to 520 with an average of 500. Taking a Combat class burns even less because being on stage gives me more spring to my step!

    Cheers,

    Go and buy an HRM :  It will give you the indication of how many calories you burn for a class.

    Hope it helps.

    125 lbs = 56.8 kg. Multiply by 10 gives 568 calories. The method of moodlesAU

    Re: Body Combat - Calories burned?

    I wear an Exerspy. It calculates my calories burnt based on my age, height, weight, fitness level, and few other parameters. I am 5'6, 52 year old, 140 lbs, and very active. I burn on an easy day :) 610 per clas and when I push my class 700 easily. I have younger members who burn up to 700 per class, same height and weight and fit. FYI Bodymedia  sells these devices, not so cheap but It is great to control your in and out calories and maintain an awesome body composition. I recommend it.

    ck1-  you appear to have a lot of snide remarks but nothing that is at all helpful to the original question.  And the smiley faces at the end of all your comments just make you seem a bit passive aggressive, or a complete jerk, not sure which. 

     

    The number of calories burnt will ALWAYS be an estimation, unless you go to a lab where they can more accurately measure calories burnt.  The best estimate will come from a HRM that takes into account factors such as age, weight, height, fitness level, etc.  For a very rough estimate, female members in my class that do have HRMs generally burn between 450-650.  Again, it all relates to how intense the workout is, so squat lower, jump higher and move faster to get the best burn!

    CK’s “snide” remarks are much more interesting than your regurgitation of this, and numerous other threads.

    Re: Body Combat - Calories burned?

    this method  i feel is inaccurate as i should have burned 1000 calories with this method and only did 424

    according to monitor

    I burn between 500 and 525 per Les Mills Body Combat class.  I wear a Polar FT4 Monitor, 145 lbs, very active.
