Tracking Calories burned.

Sunday, August 26, 2012

The tracker says if I jog 73 minutes I burn less calories than doing the Elliptical 60 minutes.
To me it doesn't make sense.
It is a LOT harder to jog. I really feel it. I have to jog up the widow Maker hill to get home.
The Elliptical is easy.
Jogging was 333 calories
Elliptical a little over 600.
The calorie thing on the elliptical says it is 700 calories.
that can't be right. First of all the Elliptical does not know how much I weigh.

I figure if i sweat a lot, get winded a little, and tired. That is a good indication that I burned a good amount of calories. I think the time and intensity is what counts.
Any thoughts on this?

    I have found that every site has a different number on how many calories are burned. and I know that there are formulas that kind of stuff, but again are they they same? I say use the one on spark. And just go with what they say.
