Calories Burned While Walking

The calories burned while walking as the examples on this page is based on a 150-pound person and will vary depending on weight, walking speed, and workout duration.

Walking to lose weight on a 25 to 30 minutes workout is called a "drop-it-fast sprint". The quicker you walk, the farther you can go and the more pounds you'll melt off. Here's a fun routine that burns as many as 175 calories:  After warming up for 5 minutes, walk as fast as you can for 10 minutes. Note how far you went. Then turn around and walk back at a brisk pace, slowing your speed to cool down as you get closer to your starting point. Each time you do this workout, aim to walk faster and go farther than your initial turnaround point.
