CALORIES BURNED DURING PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES
How to know how many calories we burn while doing physical activities
Many people ask themselves:
How many calories are burnt with sport?
What is the sport which burns more calories?
Cycling or “steps” are better for losing weight?
How many calories are burned with golf?
Playing marbles also burns calories?
To answer these questions we dispose of tables of calories. Basically, they consist of a pair of columns to expose the activity and the calories consumed during a certain time to a certain weight.
There are many tables of calories where you can find answers to these questions, although most of these tables serve only for a certain weight (usually for an average weight of 70 kg) and a certain time (usually 60 minutes)
This requires calculations to fit the particular weight of each person and the exact time being physically active.
Table of calories “burned” during physical activities
A concrete example would be the following table:

More effective than calorie table is the calorie calculator, which lets you check how many calories a person spend doing the activities according to the exact weight of that person and in real time. Through it, we know, for example, how many calories a 84 kg person spends if he/she are playing football with his/her friends for 35 minutes, or how many calories does a goalkeeper consumes in a football match.
Check the calorie calculator to see how many calories you can spend according to your weight and the time of physical activity in many more activities
