I was thinking of doing them for about five minutes at a time (if I even can! I've only gotten to 15 in a minute), and doing them in separate terms. I weigh 107, how many calories would I burn in one hour of doing burpees?

Haha.. From reading the title of your post, I'm thinking, "damn if you can do an hour of burpees, you will never have a weight problem in your life and you should be a Navy SEAL"

It's all about heart rate. But my estimate for you, at 105lbs, is that 5 minutes of pure nonstop burpees is probably going to burn about 30-50 calories.

You really want to do burpees for an hour? Have fun with that.

I cant even imagine what that would do to my knees... cripple me probably.

Lol, I've got muscle, anyways, I found it out. I actually added it to the database because they don't have it. So 60 minutes→392 calories.

I have found supporting information from http://www.nutristrategy.com/activitylist4.htm supporting that calisthenics, fast, pushups, situps and burpees have a break down of calories burned at different weight levels. Hope this helps

Use a HRM. I do sets of 10 with 1 minute breaks but only do 50 total, Great burn and great way to start a workout!
