How many calories does doing crunches burn?

I'm just wondering because I have been doing crunches to try and tone my stomach muscles. I do 60 at a time, quite intensely and it takes me about 2 minutes. I am 50kg.

Not a lot.


A 130-lb. person performing five minutes of vigorous calisthenic exercise, such as crunches, will burn 34 calories. A 165-lb. person performing a similar workout will burn 44 calories.

These kinds of exercises are not much really designed to burn calories (as opposed to aerobic exercises) but rather to tighten and build muscle.

They are not used to burn calories but instead they are used to help your stomach get toned and also help with your flexibility.

You do burn calories while you Do crunches, But to actually burn alot of calories, Cardio Workout is the best thing to do! Crunches burn fat on your belly and tighten your stomach So your Abs will start revealing! If you do sit ups It helps your Legs and your stomach and arms!
