Understanding how many calories you burn during a Taekwondo session can help you manage your fitness and dietary goals. This calculator estimates the calories burned based on your weight and the duration of the activity.
How It Works
The calculation is based on the Metabolic Equivalent of Task (MET) for Taekwondo, which is approximately 10.3. The formula used is:
\[ \text{Calories Burned} = \left(\text{MET} \times 3.5 \times \text{weight (kg)} \times \frac{\text{duration (minutes)}}{60}\right) / 200 \]
Example Calculation
If you weigh 70 kg and practice Taekwondo for 45 minutes, the calculation would be:
\[ \text{Calories Burned} = \left(10.3 \times 3.5 \times 70 \times \frac{45}{60}\right) / 200 = 188.36 \text{ calories} \]
FAQs

What is MET?
 MET stands for Metabolic Equivalent of Task, which is a measure of the energy cost of physical activities.

Why does weight affect calories burned?
 The more you weigh, the more energy your body uses to perform physical activities, resulting in more calories burned.

Can this calculator be used for other martial arts?
 The calculator is specifically designed for Taekwondo, but with a different MET value, it could be adapted for other martial arts.
