I work out on the TRX....see it on UTube or FitnessAnywhere.com

How many calories am I burning on an average type workout?

have you searched for it under exercise? It lists almost everything there and you just enter the number of minutes and it calculates the calories for you!

This post is helpful in figuring out calories burned from a TRX workout.

hi there!!! i usually count my 60min TRX class as "aerobics high impact" on MFP ... if you use the calculation from : http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/108290-how-many-calories-lost its about 490 calories for me per hour!!!! but i guess it depends on your weight

I LOVE TRX

The best way to gauge how many calories you're burning per workout would be from a heart rate monitor that you would wear on your wrist. Each person would burn differently due to sex, age, and weight.

I'm all for helping anyone that needs help and advice, but this is silly. People, please invest in an inexpensive heart rate monitor and google "calculate calorie burn with heart rate" If getting a heart rate monitor is not possible right now, then take your pulse for 15 seconds and multiply by four to get your current heart rate. Do that at intervals during your workout to calculate your average heart rate during the exercise. Then go to the aforementioned google search and figure it out. I'm sorry if I sound a little harsh but gee wiz at least try to do some of the work yourself.

Can't believe it isn't in the exercise database. Someone PLEASE ADD IT! Sorry, but I am shopping for a HR Monitor - just haven't figured out which one yet. Besides, the data base lists many, many exercises to make it easier to journal, so it makes sense to include a few more things that are currently offered at gyms across the world.

I wear a Polar HRM during my TRX workouts and I'll burn over 600 during a 30 minute class. It can vary quite a bit on how much you burn, depending on the routine you do, as well as your body and effort you put into it. For something like TRX, you really need a HRM to get an accurate burn number, you could easily be several hundred calories off using any type of calculation for it.

I swear by my heart rate monitor as everyone is different in regard to their heart rate while working out and the amount of calories burned. The calories burned all depends on how hard you workout.

this^^ as the TRX workouts are designed to accomodate all levels of intensity (thus calories burned) by the angle your body is in during the exercise (for most of them anyway). Are you dripping so much sweat during your TRX workout that you worry about ruining your carpet? Are you a bit sore from your last TRX workout? - or- could a 90 year old do your workout without breaking a sweat? TRX can accomodate both extremes.

Be careful when buying a HRM, I have one for my wrist and I still can't figure out how to set it up and stay on calorie counting. I'm annoyed they make some of these things so complicated. wink smile

I have the Polar FT4 and I have been really pleased. It was easy to set up and seems to be very accurate. Here is a link: http://www.bodytronics.com/p/polar_heart_rate_monitors/POFT4?s=g&kw=polar+ft4+exact&gclid=COLY1-att7cCFS9dQgodfAoADQ
