How do we calculate how many calories Burpees burns?

For the calorie burn calculation, the MET value (Metabolic Equivalent of Task) of Burpees is used.

Burpees has a MET of 8.

We multiply the MET value with your bodyweight in KGs. The result is multiplied by 0.0175 and the duration of the activity you performed in minutes.

For example:

  • Your body weighs: 180 lbs
  • Durition: 60 minutes
  • MET value of Burpees: 8

Here’s how to calculate the calories burned during 60 minutes of Step Aerobic:
(180 / 2.20462) * 8 * 0.0175 * 60 minutes = 686

MET

MET stands for metabolic equivalent of task, we use MET value to estimate energy expenditure. The MET value is the ratio between the working metabolic rate and resting metabolic rate, which refers to the amount of energy being expended relative to the amount of time spent doing Burpees.

* METs cannot estimate the energy cost of physical activity in individuals by accounting for differences in weight, adiposity, age, gender, intensity of movement and environmental conditions. As a result, the energy expenditures for the same activity vary from individual to individual.
