Calories burnt for an 80 lb female during bicycle crunches
Patient :Hi, how many calories does an 80lb female burn when performing 50 bicycle crunches in 1 minute. Also, how many calories does it take for an 80lb female to burn 1 calorie (does it take 7 bicycle crunches to burn 1 calorie at 80lb). Finally, what is the number of additional calories burnt when performing them either at a higher speed or continuously without rest. Or is this negligible with not many more calories resulting in being burnt. Thankyou for your help and kind regards,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com. I understand your concern.
If you do 50 bicycle crunches in 1 minute, you will burn close to 8-10 calories provided the form in which you do it is proper.
You can burn up to 5-10 calories more if the count goes more than 50. It really can't be predicted because the metabolism, the temperature, the diet, everything is important to find out the exact amount of calories burnt.
However roughly you burn around 8-10 calories for every 50 bicycle crunches.
