How many calories do you burn with INSANITY?
How many calories do you burn with INSANITY?

8/4/09 10:59 AM
hello all,
i just started INSANITY and i'm on Day 2. i use an iPhone app called Lose It that helps me track the calories i consume, and the calories that i burn to help me keep track of losing weight and the calories i take in. i was wondering if anyone knew what the total calories (or average) amount are burned with each exercise program, working at the highest level of intensity. i'd like to be able to plug in the numbers, and get a somewhat accurate measurement of where i am throughout the day.

TIA!

You might want to get a Heart Rate Monitor that also tracks calories burned. Everyone is different and what one person burns will be different from another. I haven't used Insanity yet but on P90X my calories burned was between 600-1000. On the same workouts my sons calorie count was lower than that. Hope this helps.

Well I am new to HRM but I bought a Polar F4 for $80 and a Polar F11 for $160. I gave my son the F4 and I use the F11. They both track calories burned and track your heart rate and which zone it is in. They also can be used as a watch. The F11 is a little more advanced, It has work out programs on it that I have not used yet and it also allow you to upload your workout results to the PC. I have not tried that either. Both have a chest strap you wear. You can't go wrong with either one. I am really happy with mine so far. Here is a link to Polar so you can compare models if you want. http://www.polarusa.com/us-en/products/fitness_crosstraining/F4/

I have the Polar F11 too and like it.

I'm in the middle of week 2 and I've been burning between 435 and 493 calories so far. But I've only worn it for the last 3 workouts. I had to send it out for new batteries and just got it back.

I'm 41, 5'7" and weigh 146 (5 lbs lost week in 1 emoticon). Like November said, everyone is different.

Good luck!

I am not sure about HRM. How do you do the math on how much you have burned? Or does it tell you?

Ditto. Heart Rate Monitor is your answer. Not all HRM's have a calorie-counting feature, so make sure you get one that does. Polar HRMs are the industry standard. Check them out: http://www.polarusa.com/us-en

Hope that helps.

ps...I also use "Lose it" on the iPhone. Love that app emoticon

My .02 cents on the HR monitor issue...

buy the best polar with a chest strap you can afford....I went on the cheap at first, twice..and bought other cheaper brands that did not use a chest strap....both fizzled out after a couple of weeks...I now have a Polar FT7 and it is working great....Ron
