Is there a way to track how many calories (estimate) that you burned doing one of the specifics workouts at home?

  • Was sort of hoping that there was a way to track the estimated calories burned based on the "video" that you chose to do that day.

    Before each video you enter your weight. After you are done, the program will tell you how many calories were burned.

    Unfortunately, there isn't a way to choose a video based on the number of calories--you only find out after you complete the videos. Generally, the short videos (0-20 min) burn 100 to 200 calories; the medium (20-40 min) burn 300 to 400 calories; and the long (40-60) burn around 500 calories for me.

    I look at the calories burned as a ballpark estimate of calorie burning. It probably varies depending on how much effort you put in, how many reps of each move you do in a given period, and what variations you end up doing. It's nice to have the estimate, though.

    A great way to track calories burned and ingested is using MyFitnessPal.com--the app is on my computer, phone, and iPad so it's easy to keep track of what I eat, can eat, and the calories I burn. Unfortunately, the "Daily Burn" nutrition site does not hook into the workouts for calorie count, and frankly, is a bit cumbersome, so MyFitnessPal works for me and it might help you.
