Calorie burning chart – Calories burned per 1 hour of exercise
Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and it’s especially important if you want to lose some weight or if you want to stay fit. Even if you have a healthy diet and you carefully choose what you eat, if you don’t exercise, you won’t lose much weight and you won’t have tight and toned body.
Physical activity causes the body to consume more energy and thus burn more calories. It’s well known that you’ll lose more weight if you spend more calories from the amount that you previously consumed. This means that in order to lose weight, you need to reduce the amount of calories that you consume through a healthy diet and you need to burn the extra calories with exercise.
Any physical activity requires a different amount of effort and that’s why some exercises are more effective at burning calories and others not so much. Usually you’ll burn more calories with an exercise that requires more physical activity, but if you have more time, you can do an easier exercise for a longer period of time and still get the same results.
Below are some of the basic physical activities and the number of calories they burn for 1 hour.
But before looking at the calorie burning chart below, keep in mind that calories burned during physical activity are different for every individual and it’s not influenced just by the body weight but also by the person’s metabolism, workout intensity, how fit that person is etc.
Keep in mind that the burned calories in the chart are approximate because when you exercise, your body is slowly adapting to the exercising routine and if you do the same exercise over and over again, you might burn less calories than you’ve burned the beginning. But also keep in mind, that if you exercise regularly, your body will start burning calories even when you sleep so even though you might not burn all calories from one exercise, your muscles will burn the rest when you’re not exercising.
So go ahead and start exercising, don’t justify the lack of physical activity with a shortage of time. And let’s be honest, in most cases this is not the reason why we don’t exercise enough, some days we just can’t be bothered. So even if your daily life is really very busy and hectic, have a strong will and desire and spend 10-15 a day to exercise. It doesn’t have to be some really hard exercise, just keep your body active.
