Calories per Push Up

Lately, I’ve been trying to figure out exactly how many calories I burn doing push ups. For my body weight (180lbs) and height (69.5″), I would burn approximately 550 calories per hour. This value was obtained from a random online calorie estimator.

So if I were to do 1000 push ups at 40 push ups per minute, that’s 25 minutes to burn about 230 calories. This comes out to just under 1/4 calorie per push up!

It definitely feels a lot more intense than that!



If you like this post, give me 10 cents….and I’ll give you 10 push ups.”
