How many calories do you burn weight lifting?
I guess it can't be worked out as a calories per hour kind of thing, because if you do 3 sets of something your going to be resting in between sets. So how many calories do you burn in an intense set for any muscle?
This is what I've found out (taken from some site):
A 180 lb male performing 60 minutes of weight training with vigorous effort (meaning little or no rest periods between sets) and at an intensity that causes your heart rate to remain somewhat elevated during exercise would burn approximately 400-475 calories weight lifting.
If you tend to take long rests between sets and your intensity is lower, the same person can expect to burn around 250 calories weight lifting for one hour.
