    Great workout, I use this walking workout to get warmed up before I do an upper or lower body weight workout.

      Hi There:
      Most people will burn anywhere from 50-90 calories for a “brisk” 10-minute walk. BUT…. it depends on how hard you are working and how your body is responding. Two women, both 160- pounds, can do the exact same workout and burn calories completely differently.
      The best way for you to track your calorie burning is to get yourself a heart rate monitor or a watch with heart rate monitor system built in.
      These are programmed for you personally and, better than knowing the exact calorie burn, you will be able to compare each of your workouts.
      You don’t need to spend a ton of money on one! Do a little research online before you go to buy and find one that has only the basics of what you need. Sometimes the capability of the device can exceed expectations. All you need is something to track your heart rate and give you basic information.
      One more note – don’t get too caught up in the calorie burn of your workouts. Yes – we want to work hard which means we burn calories. But that can become such a game in our mind. It’s overall movement, building strength and muscle tissue, and healthy eating – all in one big picture that we need to keep our focus. Health and feeling good is the name of the game.
