Enter the total number of pushups, your weight, and the style of push-up into the calculator to determine the calories burned from push-ups.

Push Up Calories Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the number of calories burned from doing pushups.

  • Where C is the number of calories
  • NP is the number of pushups performed
  • WF is the weight factor (heavy people burn more)
  • SF is the style factor (modified pushups burn less)

To calculate the calories burned from pushups, multiply the number of pushups by the weight factor, then multiply again by the style factor.

Push Up Calories Definition

Push-up calories are defined as the total number of calories your body burns when doing the activity of a pushup.

Push-ups, on average, burn around .32 calories. This means if you did 10 push-ups, you would burn 3.2 total calories. If you were to perform 25 pushups instead, this would burn approximately 8 calories. Below are some other common pushup quantities and calories burned.

  • 5 pushups = 1.6 calories
  • 15 pushups = 4.8 calories
  • 50 pushups = 16 calories
  • 100 pushups = 32 calories
  • 200 pushups = 64 calories
