Q:

How many sit-ups does it take to burn 100 calories?

A:

According to Diet Health Club, the average person can burn 100 calories in about 1,000 regular sit-ups. That number can be increased by doing high-intensity sit-ups: However, Diet Health Club states that it is impossible to burn more than 270 calories in any half-hour session of sit-ups.

Diet Health Club says that the average 150 pound person burns 1 calorie with every 10 sit-ups. It is therefore possible to burn 10 calories for every 100 sit-ups completed. According to Diet Health Club, It may be possible to burn as many as 270 calories in a half-hour period; but this requires a fit athlete to complete approximately 2,700 sit-ups in a half-hour period.

    How many sit-ups do you have to do to lose 4 pounds?

    A:

    Most individuals would have to perform over 50,000 sit-ups to lose 4 pounds. AZCentral explains that vigorous calisthenics, which includes sit-ups, burn about 430 calories per hour for a person weighing 130 pounds. Because each 3,500 calories burned equals 1 pound of lost weight, it takes approximately 28 hours of vigorous sit-ups for a 142-pound person to lose 4 pounds. At 30 sit-ups per minute, that is over 50,000 sit-ups.
