## How many calories do you burn by doing Push-Ups?

Research has shown that the amount of calories burned by a single push-up vary from 0.3 calories to 0.6 calories depending heavily on weight and intensity.

Push ups can be a good exercise for burning calories, but they are not necessarily the most effective way to do so. Push ups primarily work the muscles in the chest, shoulders, and triceps, and can help to build strength and endurance in these areas. While push ups do require energy and can contribute to a calorie burn, the amount of calories burned is relatively low compared to more high-intensity exercises like running, cycling, or HIIT (high-intensity interval training).

Someone weighing 180 lbs burns approximately 686 kilocalories per hour by doing Push-Ups. Fill in the form and calculate how many calories you burn by doing Push-Ups or use our Calorie Calculator for other activities.

## How do we calculate the amount of calories burned by doing Push-Ups?

This calculation uses the MET value (Metabolic Equivalent of Task) of Push-Ups. The MET value of Push-Ups = 8. We multiply the MET value with the person\'s body weight in kilogram. Then we multiply this with 0.0175 and the duration in minutes.

A person weighs: 180 lbs
MET value of Push-Ups: 8
Time: 30 minutes
The calorie calculation for Push-Ups for 30 minutes is as follows:

(180/2.20462) * 8 * 0.0175 * 30 minutes = 343

30 minutes of Push-Ups burns 343 kcal.
