Enter your body weight and the total number of sit ups performed into the calculator to determine the calories burned.

## Sit Ups Calories Burned Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the total number of calories burned while doing sit ups.

C = SU * .5 * BW/150

• Where C is the total number of calories burned
• SU is the total number of sit ups performed
• BW is the person’s bodyweight

To calculate the calories burned while doing sit ups, multiply the number of sit ups by .5, multiply by the body weight, and then finally divide by 150.

## How many calories are burned doing sit ups?

One sit up will burn an average of 1/2 or .5 calories for an average person that weighs 150 lbs. Heavier individuals will burn more per sit up and lighter individuals will burn less.

## How to calculate the number of calories burned doing sit ups?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the step-by-step solution for calculating the number of calories burned while doing sit ups.

First, determine the total number of sit ups performed. In this example, the person performed 200 sit ups.

Next, determine the body weight of the person. In this case, the individual weighs a total of 180 lbs.

Finally, calculate the total number of calories burned using the formula above:

C = SU * .5 * BW/150

C = 200 * .5 * 180/150

C = 120 calories
