How do we calculate how many calories Squash burns?

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

Squash has a MET of 7.8.

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 Squash: 7.8

Here’s how to calculate the calories burned during 60 minutes of Squash:
(180 / 2.20462) * 7.8 * 0.0175 * 60 minutes = 669

What is 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 Squash.


* There is no way for METs to accurately estimate the energy cost of physical activity in individuals when taking into account differences in weight, adiposity, age, gender, and intensity of movement, as well as environmental conditions. The result is that energy expenditures will vary from individual to individual even when the same activity is performed.
