That's true...they were an estimate based on mid level aerobics for a women your height and weight.

As I mentioned, you'd need to get hooked up to all sorts of esoteric equipment to get the *exact* number.

>3.5 mile an hour walk.

That's like....almost 7km. Not something to be sneezed at.

You want brutal hard work in next to no time and with little equipment?

I would guess that working at 200% of your Vo2 max would burn up a huge amount of calories. If I had to guess, perhaps 300 to 400. Not bad for 4 minutes, if you survive ;-)
