Calories Burned in One Hour
If you are an exercise enthusiast or exercise to manage your weight, you probably wonder how many calories you burn. The following chart shows the estimated number of calories a 125-pound person burns while performing a variety of activities for one hour at a moderate intensity level.
|Golfing (carrying clubs)||263|
|Jogging 5 mph||468|
|Skating (ice or roller)||410|
|Walking 2 mph||146|
|Walking 3.5 mph||222|
Getting exercise may be simpler than you think. Thirty minutes of moderate-intensity physical exercise per day could lower your risk of many health problems including heart disease and osteoporosis.
Everyday household activities – from washing windows to raking leaves – can help you burn the 150 calories a day recommended by many medical experts.
