How many calories do i burn shoveling, less than 10 lbsminute, moderate effort
Use the calculator to figure out how many claories you can burn shoveling, less than 10 lbsminute, moderate effort
How to calculate calories (burned)
The number of calories you burn while exercising is dependent on:
 the exercise you do
 your weight
 the time spent doing the activity
By multiplying the MET ^{(*)} value by the body weight in kg and the duration of the activity, you can estimate the energy expenditure in Kcal specific to a persons body weight. This statement can be expressed as the following formula:
Calories burned = METs x weight x (time / 60)
So, a 70 kg individual shoveling, less than 10 lbsminute, moderate effort for 30 minutes expends the following:
(5 METs x 70 kg) x (30 min/60 min) = 175.0 Kcal.
Notes:
 5 is the value in METs for shoveling, less than 10 lbsminute, moderate effort
 The time unit is expressed in minutes
 The mass (weight) unit is expressed in kilograms
 We divide the time by 60 (min), because the MET unit uses hour.
(*) MET means 'metabolic equivalent'
