One of the best and easiest exercises is ‘Push-ups.’ Many people have a question in their mind that how many calories does a push up burn!

I think that push-up calories are a complex question. It depends on your age, weight, arm size, body mass, etc. If you are heavier than you will burn more calories. Push-up does burn fat. Faster push-ups are recommendable as it can burn more than 100 calories a day, but it’s up to the person’s ability. Don’t stretch yourself too much. Start slowly.

1 or 2 calories can be burned by the push-ups, but that too depends on your speed. If you are doing 100 push-ups a day is quite impressive. You can do 60 pushups in 1 minute. Try to do that in slots. So that you will be able to burn 100 calories a day in less than 5 to 10 minutes. Because as per my opinion, the general time 1 push-up can take is just 1 second or 2.

Yes, if you have just started doing push-ups than it can take more time. But trust me, nothing is wrong in that. Just keep pushing yourself and be consistent. It will surely give you positive outcomes. And if you want to take breaks then you can take a break on every 20 push-ups. It will not have any adverse effect on your burning calories. Any person, whether student, employee or businessman, males or females, can spare 15 minutes a day for that dream of a flat belly and strong body.

Push-ups can help you strengthen your chest, triceps, and abs. Push-up is not a cardio exercise. It is for strength as I have mentioned. Push-ups can assist you in increasing your metabolism also.
