Calorie – Activity Mapping and Categories

September 12th, 2010 · No Comments · Health

While returning from my son’s weekly swimming class, we could not help notice a board at the swimming pool which had a chart with a map of calories burnt by activity for 30 minutes and also for 60 minutes.

To make it easier to understand, I have separated the common activities into three types:

Low Calorie Burning Activities:
Low Impact Aerobics
Leisure Bicycling
Bowling
Canoeing
Dancing
Golfing
Hiking
Softball
Tai Chi
Volleyball
Cricket
Walking
Weightlifting

Medium Calorie Buring Activities:
High Impact Aerobics
Basketball
Football
Ice Skating
Rowing
Jogging
Skiing
Stair Treadmill
Swimming
Tennis
Badminton

High Calorie Burning Activities:
Tae Kwon Do
Rollerblading
Rope Jumping
Running

This simple categorisation should help you understand the type of activity you perform and how is it relative to the other activities given above. This is to give you an idea of the relative calories amount burnt when compared with the other activities.

I hope you are already doing one or more of the activities each week. If you are not, it is high time you start doing at least one activity at least once a week.

Hope it helps.
