When I choose the gardening option in SP I always cut the actual time I garden in half just to be sure I don't over "count" in calories burned. Sometimes I really burn a lot, but often I feel like it can be an overestimate. This works for me and I am comfortable with it.

The fitness tracker does have a gardening as an option, but I am not sure what the equation they use.

I can't remember the sight where I read the gardening calorie quote. I decided to search for it but couldn't find it. Below is a link I found this evening, on a search, you might want to click this link www.cleanairgardening.com/gardenexer

Calories for doing garden work is not listed on Spark People.com.

Another exercise routine that I have not found on SP is tension band work outs. I would like to put that in as I do regular tension band work outs, with the Tony Little Shaper.

What type of work was considered when they came up with that number? And is the amount on spark people exercise tracker?

I ask because sometimes I have easy chores other times the chores are much more labor intensive.

Average is 280 calories per hour.

Though it is suggested that doing stretches, is an important step, before starting any type of garden work.. As avid gardeners, we know the time in the garden flies by all too quickly and we often end up doing more chores than planned!
