Bodypump is a weight loss and energy expenditure promoting apparatus that is designed to help you lose pounds fast. It comes in two different modes namely; the ‘Light’ mode, which is for normal to overweight people and the ‘High’ mode which are ideal for obese people or for those who have just started a heavy load resistance exercise plan. The machine can be set to simulate many types of activities such as walking, jogging, running, climbing, etc. In addition, the Bodypump can be programmed to vary its intensity. However, the maximum calories that it can burn in a workout session remains undefined. That is, the question ‘How many calories do you burn in bodypump?’
When using the Bodypump to burn calories, you will not be able to measure the number of calories burnt through its features because it has no means of tracking calories burnt during workouts. However, there are ways on how you can estimate how many calories you have consumed during a workout session. One way is by subtracting the total kilocalories (a) from the total number of calories (calories) you burn during a workout session. You can also multiply both the on rate and the calories per minute by 3 to get the approximate number of calories per minute.
In essence, the Bodypump works on the principle of steady state energy expenditure or thermogenesis. Under this concept, your Bodypump does not require you to exert an effort to make you work out. This means that even when you use the Bodypump for heavy load resistance exercise, you can be assured that the number of calories burned during your workout is the same even when you are at rest.
This concept of steady state energy expenditure was actually discovered more than 40 years ago. But recent studies have extended its basis to consider the effect of calories on the mind. In fact, this idea became the basis of the Atkins Diet as well. The results of this study show that participants who took on the diet made significant improvements when they took into account their mental state while exercising. When they were given access to a constant supply of food, they exhibited higher levels of motivation and were able to sustain their weight loss plan even when they encountered difficulties in maintaining it.
So how many calories do you burn in bodypump during intense resistance exercise workouts? The answer is actually a lot. The amount of calories used up when you complete a Bodypump session depends on the intensity and duration of your workout. You can easily find out how many calories your body burns during intense exercise workouts by using the Bodypump’s monitor system.
The monitor features in Bodypump enable you to record your calories burnt during different intensity level exercises. This includes exercises performed at rest and when moving. When you start using the Bodypump, you are prompted to select from three intensity levels which range from Beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Based on these initial levels, the number of calories per minute increases or decreases.
As you exercise with the Bodypump, the monitor shows you the number of calories per minute as well as the number of calories expended during your set session. The monitor also offers you the option to record only those exercises that you can accomplish regardless of the intensity level. In doing so, you will be able to know how many calories you really have consumed and burned during your Bodypump session.
To get the most from your Bodypump sessions, it is important that you continue to increase the intensity level. This means that as the number of calories you have burned increases, you will need to push yourself further to derive optimal benefit from your exercise workouts. As you continue to do so, you will start to notice a significant reduction in your total amount of calories you are burning. To reach maximum results, you should always use the Bodypump to continue to increase the intensity level of your exercise workouts.
