    look at the poster of the current release that shows you roughly how many calories you can burn or even go to the main page and click on BodyPump classes, they give you information about that.

    or buy an HR monitor

    My heart rate monitor is being repaired so I'm not sure about the latest release, but I burn on average 200 calories for a body pump class.  I lift as heavy as I can while still maintaining proper form.

    Re: Body Pump calories

    200 sounds really low. The posters usually estimate 550 or so. At least the ones I've seen.

    Re: Body Pump calories


    I think what many of the other responders have, perhaps slightly unhelpfully in some cases, tried to say is that it's a very hard figure to get right.
     
    Do you mean for you, or for any individual?
     
    I would estimate that it could vary between 300 and 800 kcals quite easily with variation between people. the upper ends figures being exceedingly rare. It might be that the upper limit is higher.
     
    In previous releases I have seen figures of both 800 kcals and 600kcals for the same class for the same individual (me), but from different HRMs. Garmin seem to produce higher figures, Polar lower. However, all HRMs are trying to estimate kcal consumption from heart rate, and it isn't very accurate when it comes to weight based training. There may be occasions where for some it under reads, but for many people it will over read the kcals consumed.
     
    Using oxygen consumption is meant to be more accurate, but the equipment is pretty specialised. When using oxygen consumption in the lab the figures indicated about 50kcals for the squat track, one of the higher burners ,which would limit the overall consumption to around 500 kcals and probably lower than this. However, these figures are for me and not for a different individual. A stronger, heavier ,  heavier weights than me should burn more kcals. We couldn't do a complete class with the equipment as some of the moves just weren't possible With the fighter pilot facemask on. :) 
     
    So, to answer your question. We have no easy answer . 
     
    Our forum friend generally is exceedingly lazy in pump and therefore does 55 minutes of rest to burn her 55 kcals. 
     
    :-P
