Calculation is based on MET value of the activity: resistance training (weight lifting, free weight, nautilus or universal), power lifting or body building, vigorous effort (Taylor Code 210).
MET value = 6.
Caloric expenditures (1-hour duration) by weight:
(man/woman) weighing 50 kg = 300 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 55 kg = 360 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 60 kg = 360 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 65 kg = 390 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 70 kg = 420 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 75 kg = 450 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 80 kg = 480 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 85 kg = 510 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 90 kg = 540 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 95 kg = 570 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 100 kg = 600 calories.
