How many calories will I burn weight lighting compared to doing cardio (in general terms)? From what I gather they're comparable.
About 100 calories a mile, a little more if you're heavy or doing hills.
They are not comparable.

"im assuming the holy (big) 3 are: curls, bench, legs?" - Saggas
"had a huge ass burn on my triceps while I was doing those kickbacks, so they'll likely be staying with my exercise program." - Zearoth
"most of my burned calories coming from something called Basal. Wtf does a leaf have to do with any of it?" - Votorx
"We have a lot of people like that on our campus, all hippies and things, that go around preaching against corporations, jocks, preps, accountants, and anyone else that feels the need to shower more than occasionally." - Shankerr
"Damn man why are some women just so demonic and evil.. its like you wanna get a stake and mallet and an erection at the same time." - WBBIRL
yeah man I'm trying to gain weight from lifting not lose it...cardio is pure cal. burn...as for lifting you try to stuff your face with everything that remotely has protein in it...canadian said it right they are not able to be compared...

I really mean at the time of the excerise how much in general do you burn? I know weightlifting you will eat a lot more calories, but I'm just saying when doing the exercise.
alott of studys have shown that when you gain a lb of lean mass(muscle) it requires your body to burn 50 more calories a day to maintain it... just warm up a lil brisk walking, get that heart rate going then lift weights, but dont break more than 30 secs between sets, and use a circut system it keeps the heart rate up, and blood flown
bench: 325 Goal by end of may 355
Squat: 450 Goal by may 525
plan to get weight under 225.
you don't have to keep your rest to 30 seconds, or do a circuit. if you are going for strength or mass, you may want to wait between 2-3 minutes between sets. find what works for you thoughOriginally Posted by bonzaisushi
