Re: How many calories would you burn in a one hour class?

Im a big fan for excercise and I guess that the threadstarter is already working out (or atleast trains aikido) on a regular basis (hence "outside your normal training schedule"). But in my experience its easier to slim down by focusing on my diet than by more exercise.

A intermediate heart rate monitor will estimate the amount of burned calories according to your data and your heartrate during practise.

An interesting article on the hazards of maintaining your weight through diet alone:

Even if you don't lose any weight through your exercise program at least you improve your fitness and health levels.
