Calculation energy usage by sport

 

 

 

Sports mean also calorie burning. How larger the effort is how larger the calorie combustion will be. It is also that a heavier person more energy consumed, because these have more to move. Running a marathon costs between 2500 and 3000 kcal. A bicycle excursion of 4 hours in a spicy tempo almost the same. Looking to a film: 250 kcal. For further information: Sport nutrition.
 
 

Energy usage at several sports

 
 

Activity:  (After choice the sport can be changed with scroll-knob)

Sporting time: min.

What is your weight:   lbs/kg

This way correct?

The energy usage is:  kcal   Kjoules (1 kcal = 4,2 Kjoules)

 
 

Energy usage at running

 
 
At running the energy usage is dependent on the number of  kilometers/miles that you run and your weight. Therefore it is independent of the running speed. The usage is approximately right to: 1 kcal by km by kg (2.2 lbs). Or 1.6 kcal by mile by kg (2.2 lbs). The more efficient runner a little less and the other way around.

Distance: meter

What is your weight:   lbs/kg

This way correct?

The energy usage is:  kcal   Kjoules (1 kcal = 4,2 Kjoules)

 

Table energy usage

 
 
Below a table in which the energy usage per hour by kilo and pound body weight has been calculated for several speeds.
In the last column the usage for someone of 60 kg (or 132 lbs) has been calculated per hour.
