Burning Calories While Doing Strength Training

As I’ve mentioned yesterday, you are probably asking yourself why I didn’t write anything about calories burnt while doing the strength exercises (exercises from day 1 to 6). The answer is a simple one: though you do burn calories doing those exercises the number of calories burnt varies a lot from person to person. Also, it depends on how much weight you are using (i.e. the weight of your body, the weight of the dumbbells), as well as how hard you are working and how much rest you take between repetitions. Hence, no one can tell you exactly how much you are burning.

For example, yesterday I did 20 modified push-ups (girly), 30 lying abductions, 30 crunches and 30 body weight squats and the estimated calories burnt were 133 calories. As a comparison, preparing a dinner for about 15 to 45 minutes can burn about 126 calories.

Now, don’t assume that if you prepare dinner you won’t need to do exercises. As you are doing strength exercises and start building muscle, the body will burn more fat while you sit and do nothing because muscles need to energy than fat.

Along with strength training, cardio exercises are a must. But more about them, in the next blog.
