Can anyone tell me approximately how many calories do you burn when you do the complete 30 mins of Hip Hop Abs????

I log it under Dance, aerobic, ballet or modern twist and calories lost was only like 209...I feel like it may be more than that can tell me if this is correct?

The only thing that I found is that at at your weigth you should burn about 10 calories per min doing hip hop style dancing

i was just googling this as well looking for that answer. i found that between 330-550, depending on age, weight, etc. 45 minutes of areobic dance is 773 :)

As the other two posters said, it all depends on age and weight - fitness level can also be a factor. When I first started out, I could burn crazy calories doing much lighter intensity activities, now the only thing that gives me that kind of burn is running. The last time I did Hip Hop Abs, my total burn was 383 and that was for 60 minutes (did the 45 minute total body burn and then part of one of the other ones, can't remember which) which is just over 6 calories per minute. I'm 38 years old, fairly fit and weigh about 175.

ETA: Went back in history on my exercise diary just out of curiosity. A little over a year ago, I was about 20 pounds heavier and only had a slightly better burn of just over 7 calories per minute.

That sounds about right to me because I do the Fat Burning Cardio dvd sometimes and I burn between 250-350 depending on the workout I did before that and I weigh over 300lbs!!

I've been doing hip hop abs for the past 2 weeks, and between using the Total Body Burn & The Hips Buns and Thighs i burn between 300 - 500/600 Calories depending how long i survive on the hips buns and thighs, it's killer. haha

if any of you have xbox 360 with kinect or your kid does take it from them lol, the zumba rush and core cd's are awesome and they tell you how many calories burned and the hip hop dance experience game is fun also, the dance marathon tells you calories burned once you stop. if you have xbox live you can play against friends, its pretty cool way of enjoying a workout.

As has been said, its going to be different for each person. The best way to know is to wear a heart rate monitor, see what your average heart rate is and then use one of the heart rate based calorie calculators that estimates based on your gender, weight, age, and heart rate. For example, I do Hip Hop Abs because its fun and it does help with trimming abs, but its not a huge calorie burner...not enough intensity to get my heart rate up. I'm 54, male, 158lbs and during a 30 minutes session my average heart rate is 118, so using the calculator my net calorie burn is only 285 calories. When I jog at a good pace, 45 minutes at a heart rate of 140 gives me a net calorie burn of 630 calories. Over twice the calories for just 15 minutes more activity.
