What do you reckon?

Trying to input exercise on MyFitnessPal...

bout 250?

Do you think?

I'd like to know as becoming mildly obsessive over MFP input

Would calorie content differ from L1 to L2? (Surely, it must shock)

About 180 cals, thats what it measured when I used a heart monitor/cal counter. It will depend on your weight as well, it is only 18 minutes of exercise with a gentle warm up, so its pretty good for such a short time.

yeah not as much as you'd imagine really

notnowbernard Tue 09-Apr-13 22:24:08

Only 180 shock

I did L2 today and really went for it...

I'd be gutted if I burnt off less than a Hot X Bun!!!

I think its a very good burn rate for such a short period of time! You could always do the levels back to back grin

Not sure I'm quite ready for that....(!)

L2 is hard

I always tracked it as "circuit training, general" on MFP. When I first started (6' and a size 22 blush) I burnt 430 calories in half an hour.

I track as circuit training too which at 5' 1" is 144 calories for 20 mins. Sometimes it doesn't seem worth logging (but I do) smile
