i've been trying to get some chart that would predict
how many calories can a 165 person who stands
at 5'10 can burn. since i cant find anything, i'm not
really gonna abandon em. anyone have any recommendations
as to how many sets and reps one should do to
burn most amount of fat?
youre 5'10 and 165 and want to burn fat???? sorry man
im 5'6 175, and i need to get bigger!
Focus on lifting heavy and hard to maintain the muscle mass that you do have. Eat at 10%-15% below maintenance to cut body fat. Throw in burpees to increase the caloric deficit if you like but, please, please, don't stress out and bust out a calculator to figure out how many calories you're going to burn per burpee. It's not worth it.
I would do more of a sustained cardio workout to burn calories. Maybe run for 20 minutes, something to that effect. I can't do burpees for more than 45 seconds without halfway passing out and I know that that is not going to burn as many calories as a good sustainable pace on a nice jog.
Plus, diet, combined with a good lifting program, is going to determine how quickly that weight comes off, not doing burpees.
Most people pray for a lighter load in life...ever thought of praying for a stronger back?

15 minutes of burpees at your weight will burn around 40 calories.
I would add about 20 pounds of lean muscle mass while keeping the current fat weight.

even skipping rope burns more fat than just jogging for 20 minutes. actually, jumping is a very efficient way to burn fat.
i think burpees may make you loose more calories than sprinting simply because doing em, you really start feeling your entire body is giving out on you. individually, i can do all those moves for quiet some time. a jump, a push up, etc. but doing all that in one go really kills me. anymore than 20 reps and i'm done. give a small rest then do em again and i'm done...
