i don't count weight lifting, because i don't know for sure how many calories i burn, and i only weight lift for like.. 30 mins? but once a week, i weight lift like.. 45-60 mins.
how about you guys?
what was your minimum/maximum??

what's your speed? do you put an incline?
::: scaej01 :::
mmm... i think you probably burn more than 300... how long do you rest for?
i think i'll go for like.. 400+ ???
I only burn about 250-300 (according to the treadmill counter), because I can't seem to make myself go any longer than 30-40 minutes or jog for even half that time. :( I'm working on my endurance, though...

the number of calories you burn depends on ur weight - body status and how hard you're doing it for. im guessing you take it easy? :P
I just started to add weights to my treadmill walking :)
According to my heart rate monitor....
On an average, about 80 min heavy lifting burns about 300 cals.....then 25 min on the elliptical not killing myself burns another 150-200...
But it all depends on your age, wgt, sex, bodyfat %, intensity...
When I was 44 lbs heavier a few months ago, the same workout would burn about 8-900 cals...
It's all relative...The older I get, the lighter I get, the less I burn...However, building muscle helps keep the metabolism going. I would never try to burn alot of calories just doing cardio...

- Elliptical ::: 30 mins + 5 mins cool down
- Stair-Climber ::: 30 mins + 5 mins cool down
- Treadmill ::: 20~30 mins + 5~10 mins cool down
for me, the last one -> treadmill is one that i take easily, cuz im all tired and stuff. i call doing my third cardio machine "The Making Up," cuz im just going slow on it, just burning a bit more. you know?
but the first 2, oh god do i ever do them so VIGOROUSLY!!! hahahaha :D
but thankfully, i got A LOT of energy. and my gym got tv's so that's a boost!
i went to the gym today..
- Warm Up (Treadmill) -> 8 mins = 55 kcal
- Weights -> 45 mins = ? kcal
- Elliptical -> 35 mins = 360 kcal
- Stair Climber -> 35 mins = 360 kcal
- Ab Exercises -> 10 mins = ? kcal
------------------- Total = 800 kcal -----------------------
but god dammit i just had to eat a lot when i came home!! Grrr...
before eating dinner, i've had around 1100 calories total...
-> so i guess it was actually fine = good for me to eat more. since i was still below 1200 kcal and i also exercised and burned quite a bit . lol.
~*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_ what do you guys think? _*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*~
-> but how come i still don't feel so good about eating dinner!!!!!!
and according to this site, i burn over 2k cals from 2 hours of cardio a day.
Subwaybuskter; It's not hard to burn that many calories, you just over work yourself. And from experience I am in recovery from ana/mia, you get dizzy when you step off the machines. And sometimes you feel ill.
Now I know that sooji is going to argue this and say she doesn't get that, but even in recovery if I overowkr myself I get a bit dizzy.
An hour or so on the bike or treadmill gets me to 550ish calories, then I do weights/abs for the rest. I work out for typically 1.5 - 1.75 hours.
My max was the other night, 30 min on the bike, then a kickboxing class, then a hip hop class, then I stayed and did some dance skills (leaps, heavy stretching) --- 2.5 hours, 1300 calories

which machine are you talking about? for elliptical, i put 11 as my resistance. for stair-climbing, i put 11 first, but then after 3 minutse or so, put 12 and just kill my self and go go go !! hahaha . on the treadmill, my spee'd always 9.0 after the first minute of 7.0. HAHA YOU MADE ME LAUGH AT THE GETTING STARES AND YOU NOT STEPPING AS HARD !!!! seriously, i think the ellipticals ur using needs oil man. hahaha.

darling you made me smile :) im nto going to argue, but yeah... most of the time, i feel fine. i think it's because now im used to it. before, there were times when i felt dizzie ~ usually after running on the elliptical for 35 mins, my feets fall asleep!! gahhh!! but im a very eccentric girl, i love that feeling when my feet or my body feels that way!! lol

beb, you're awesome. 1300 calories rocks my world. the most i could burn was 1200calories. how tall & how much do you weigh? i don't like to join classes. i just like to do it by myself. well, i also had a personal trainer. i liked that. i still occasionally do. whenever i feel lazy to figure out what kind of work outs to do :P rely on the PT!
