Calories Burned during Combat?
Why is this a SUBcategory of Les Mills Pump rather than its own topic?

Anyway, anyone have a ballpark for how many calories are burned in the various workouts? If not, anyone willing to share their numbers?

Hi, WallyTrain!

I also wondered why this is a subcategory rather than its own!

I knew personally, since I use a heart rate monitor with chest strap, typically my calorie burn is pretty accurate. For me, I usually burn 300 in 30 minutes. Now that all depends on body weight. As if you weigh more, you will burn more calories. Hope that helps some.

hey. I use a heart rate monitor with chest strap too and for me 30min of workout burns around 450 calories. I try to keep my 156 HB per min.

A heart rate monitor is the only way you're going to be able to tell specifically. All body types burn calories differently. And, your effort will greatly determine your burn. On Combat 45, I severely pushed it one day and got a 670 kcal burn.. However, today, doing the exact same routine, I only got a 543 kcal burn. You can "guess-stimate" your burn, but the only way to be sure, especially with the effort you put into it, is to get a heart rate monitor. Good luck with it!! It's a great program!!

According to my FT7 heart rate monitor which has a chest strap I have been generally in the following ranges, but it depends on how I am feeling so it varies by day. Hope that helps

30 minute routines lowest reading 425, 470 max reading
45 minute routines lowest reading 600, 650 max reading
60 minute routines lowest reading 810, 870 max reading

These numbers make me think My Polar is off. According to my heart rate monitor, I burned 547 Calories on Combat 30. Average Heart rate @ 154 and max @ 184.

Good Afternoon WallyTrain! I believe the reason it is a subcategory because of the name Les Mills. Though PUMP is the "main" category, I assume (horrible habit to do but eh lol) we are going to see some more Les Mills inspired workouts in the future. Again, just an assumption. Can't hurt to dream right? Haha

Regarding the calorie burn. I am a part of a 100 person challenge group and I have seen numbers range from 350 to 850 on the same workouts. It is all 100% dependent on the person , their build and how hard they BRING IT! Some people are not yet able to give 100% the whole entire time. Yet you have others like Dan who you think will jump through the screen because they have so much intensity. Another thing to add is our body chemistry is different than the person next to you. Resting heartbeat could be lower or higher, physicality levels may not be at top peak performance yet or they are Navy SEALs and Green Berets.

I would recommend a heartrate monitor for two reasons. One, you will be able to keep your heartrate in the target zone while being safe about it. Two, you can truly see how many calories you burned so you can adjust your nutrition intake properly.

Let me know if you have any other questions! Remember to DIG DEEP and Stay In The Fight!
