How to calculate calories burned during a Vale Tudo (Martial Arts) session?

To estimate the calorie burn for Vale Tudo (Martial Arts) , we utilize the MET value (Metabolic Equivalent of Task) associated with the activity.

Vale Tudo (Martial Arts) has a MET value of 10.2, which is used to estimate the amount of calories burned during the activity.

We calculate the calories burned by multiplying the MET value with the individual’s body weight in kilograms, then multiplying the result by 0.0175 and the duration of the activity performed in minutes.

For example:

  • Your body weighs: 180 lbs
  • Durition: 60 minutes
  • MET value of Vale Tudo (Martial Arts): 10.2

The following is an example of how to estimate the number of calories burned during a 60-minute Vale Tudo (Martial Arts) session:
(180 / 2.20462) * 10.2 * 0.0175 * 60 minutes = 874

What is MET?

MET stands for Metabolic Equivalent of Task, and it is a unit used to measure the amount of energy expended during physical activity. The MET value of an activity is calculated by comparing the rate of energy expended during that activity to the rate of energy expended while at rest. Essentially, the MET value is the ratio of the working metabolic rate to the resting metabolic rate. We use the MET value to estimate the amount of energy expended and, therefore, the number of calories burned during an activity like Vale Tudo (Martial Arts).

METs are a measure of energy expenditure during physical activity, and understanding them requires knowledge of how the body uses energy. The energy required for movement is generated by the cells in our muscles, which use oxygen. One MET is equivalent to 3.5 milliliters of oxygen consumed per kilogram of body weight per minute. Energy expenditure during physical activity can vary among individuals based on factors such as age and fitness level. MET values can be helpful in designing an exercise plan or assessing the effectiveness of a workout routine for most healthy adults.

Note: It’s important to note that while METs are useful for estimating the energy expenditure of physical activities, they cannot accurately account for individual differences such as weight, age, gender, intensity of movement, and environmental factors. Therefore, even when performing the same activity, the energy expenditure will vary from person to person.
