Basics of Burning Calories

To lose one pound, you must burn 3,500 calories more than you
consume. When comparing exercise options, cardiovascular exercise
burns the greatest number of calories in the shortest amount of time.
But not all cardio is the same. For a 150-pound person, one hour of
walking at 4 miles per hour burns about 420 calories, while the same
person running at 6 miles per hour burns 750 in the same amount of
time. Increasing the intensity of the activity by moving faster or
increasing resistance burns more calories. In the case of walking, it
takes nearly nine hours to burn one pound. For running, it would take
about 4 hours 40 minutes. Your Kickboxing classes at CMA can burn
between 600 and 1200 calories per hour depending on several factors
including the intensity that you train with.  The harder you go, the more
you burn!  Connecticut Martial Arts 61 Newtown Road Danbury
