As a very rough guide, most people burn about 6 calories per minute of moderate effort on a sustained basis, and about 10 calories per minute of more vigorous effort. A fit person pushing themselves might burn 12-13 cal/min.
However, for a shorter 15 minute workout where you can push harder than you could for a longer effort, the maximum numbers may be a bit higher.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I have an older model of a dual action stationary bike. The calories info is broken. How can I tell how many calories I burn when I do 15 min. or so of high intensity or just casual use? I weigh 151. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you
