Question for women that tend to burn 700+ caloires per workout....what are you doing to get such a GREAT calorie burn? How much do you weigh (I know that effects calorie burn)...GOOD FOR YOU -Im just curious because I never seem to get above 500 no matter what I do.....

I burned 800 calories once, it was really hard todo! I spent an hour doing cardio machines then lifted weights then went back to the gym later that day!

I weigh 204 right now, but when I run, I burn about 550 calories in 30 minutes! At least, that's what my HRM says. Running generally keeps my heartrate in the 180-190bpm range (I'm 25 & seem to have a higher than average max heartrate - I'm breathing pretty comfortably at 180-5). So, that's how I can pretty easily burn around 700-800 cals in 45 minutes or so.

I weigh 153 lbs. and burn 700 calories riding my bike around our slightly hilly city in the northeast for 70 minutes. I burned 960 yesterday riding for an hour and 45 minutes. 25 minutes of strength training and 40 minutes of interval walking usually burns around 600 for me.

Spin class gives me about 500 ish....
Im weighing about 150 now and am pretty close to my goal weight, I wonder if that is why I dont burn as much...?

I ran outside today for the first time in a LONG time and did 470 calories in 60 minutes..my hrm was at about 160 most of the run (but that is higher then a treadmill run where I dont get above 145 most times).....I think I need to investigate this running outside thing for the next few months!

It definitely depends on your weight- a 150 lb person uses much less energy to move than a 250 lb person.

I weigh 125-128 and getting in 300-400 cals on a regular workout is great for me, but for someone heavier it would be a walk in the park

Yeah I agree.

And that day I did 800 calories, it was multiple hours and sessions! laugh I only did it once because that night I thought I was going to die!!!!

I posted this earlier today and just wanted to share it here! It's a great article called "Why Cardio Alone Doesn't Cut Fat": http://articles.elitefts.com/training-articles/why-cardio-alone-doesnt-cut-fat/

I weigh 160 and usually can burn 300 calories in a half hour on the elliptical. If I have the time (like last night while watching baseball at the gym), I do 30-60 minutes of cardio, some circuit training, and then lift.

Be sure you're eating your exercise calories! :-)

I burn about 650 during an hour of spin and 750 during 75 min of zumba - according to my HRM even more if I really push harder/up my tension....

I'm 214 lbs

I currently weigh about 170- I burn 800+ calories regularly (about 3-4 days a week). I've found that wearing my HRM ensures that I am really able to gauge how hard I am making my body work and it keeps me in the zone. In a 60 min. workout I would say that I never let my heart rate fall below 75% and for at least 40 minutes I make sure to keep it between 85-90%. Whichever machine I'm working on I just make sure to increase resistance and/or speed if I see that my HR is lagging a bit. It's good way to get your heart rate up that I've found are sprints, that is usually a good kick start on the days that my heart rate doesn't seem to want to increase. Doing this also constantly ensures that I continue to challenge myself with each and every workout.

Hope this is helpful- best of luck to you!

I am 5'5", 134lbs. I normally spend an hour strength training and approximately 55 minutes equally with the elliptical and treadmill. My normal calorie burn is between 750 and 830, total for the whole workout .

I have a trainer and he works me high intensity. Here's a typical workout, hope it helps!
10 minute warm up, either quick on elliptical or running on treadmill
Do 1 minute intervals of each:
Squats
push-ups
chest press (I use 15 lb weights) on stability ball
shoulder press on stability ball
Tricep press (use the edge of a bench, hands on bench, use arms to lower yourself while in a sitting position)
2 minute rest
sumo squats
walking lunges - 2 minutes of this
jumping jacks
bicycle crunches
1/2 plank
2 minute rest
repeat circuits 1 and 2 at 30 sec intervals instead of at 1 minute
1 minute sprints at 6.5-7 (run 1 full minute, walk 1 minute, repeat about 5x)
I'll often run a mile after my sprints

Good luck!

For me that's what it takes...I can burn 700 calories in an hour on the awesome Arctrainer machine, but I don't usually get out to the one gym that has them. 650 is my max on the elliptical..I weigh 145 and that's an hour at level 7 average (I mix it up to build strength). I can only get about 450 in an hour on a treadmill, same on the stairmaster. Which baffles me to no end because the stairmaster is sooooo hard and I sweat buckets!
