If you're doing something like Tabata most places say 400-500 calories an hour and if its something like Body Attack it ranges from 500-700 but a lot of it is going to depend on your intensity. These numbers are for people that aren't doing the modifications and can go the entire way through without stopping. So I would take these numbers into an account and then if you're doing modifications or if you're not completely the sets completely just take off 50-100 calories depending on what you're doing until you can get a monitor.
Its always better to underestimate than to overestimate calories burnt.
I know my monitor said about 310 calories for a 12 minute workout. I work out at about 85-90% of my heart rate

Does anyone know how many calories are burned when doing High Intensity Interval Training? Do you know how to track it on the fitness tracker? I have just started doing them and I have just been putting it under circuit training.
I don't have a Heart Rate Monitor. I am unemployed and can not spend the amount of money it cost to buy one. I know you need to take you beats per min when working out, but what is a formula to use to calculate calories burned?
