Strength & Flex

Could you give me a rough idea of how many calories the strength & flex podcasts use, please?

I am doing the Strength and Flex podcasts and am on week 2, really enjoying them. I have just discovered the app MyFitnessPal which is like a comprehensive food diary / nutrition value balanced against exercise done. It would really help if I knew how many calories each podcast burns so that I can incorporate this into my "Master-plan". I know it would be approximate because there are options and also I sometimes jog rather than walk in between exercises.

Thank you.

Hi Sozz,

Your weight, effort and duration of exercise all count towards working out the number of calories burned. I use the Calories per hour website which I've found to be quite accurate.

This link takes you to the "Calories Burned Calculator" section. Just click on "Activity calculator". Enter the required information and search for "Calistenics light or moderate" in the A-Z activity list. I think calisthenics comes closest to the type of exercises in the Strength and Flex series.

Using this website, I work out that an 80kg person would burn 163 calories in 35mins doing podcast one.

Hope this helps


Thank you, that's very helpful.
