I've been doing some HIIT following someone on you tube and their 4 min exercises. Does anyone know roughly how many calories they burn if I do them for 20 minutes?

Link to a video, tell me your weight, age & gender, & I'll make a stab at estimating it for you.

Is there a way I can send it on a private message?

oh yeah, sure, click Message poster next to my talk-name.

If I do the shred (20 mins) I log it as aerobic exercise and my Fitbit tells me it's burned about 100/120 calories. I'd be very happy to be corrected though

I just painstakingly worked thru some numbers for Giraffe & very close to what Zame said (100 actually for 20 minutes). Which is reassuring. Depends on individual things, too.

Thanks for working it out

I generally burn around 100-120 cals per 10 minutes with a heart rate of above 165bpm.
