    In one week? 10 pounds? thats pretty impossible, unless you’re just starting to work out and are extrememly over weight.
    Doing different activities burn different calories at the gym. Running is top at around 11 calories a minute, more when you add incline.
    Even having 300 minutes of cardio a week will burn 10-15 pounds a month.
    Just keep on a daily routine of exercise and those poundss will fall off.

    300+ depending on your intensity, cardio and/or weights & current body weight.

    I just did this today, 20 minutes on the stair-stepper @ 60 steps/minute, weights for 20 minutes and jumped rope for 20 minutes. I feel amazing. Strongly suggest it. I definitely burned off 300-400 calories of super-bowl munchies.

    Well, first of all keep in mind that you burn calories doing everything. Sleeping, eating, walking, talking, keeping your heart beating and your blood pumping. So, its’ not like you have to burn 3,500 at the gym. Usually in a 1 hour gym session i burn about 400 – 550 calories. And i work out 4-5 times a week and lose about 1 – 2.5 pounds every week.

    Don’t try to lose 10 pounds in one week, that’s ridiculous.

    Your body burns a certain amount of calories each day whether you exercise or not. We each have what is called a Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). This rate gradually decreases with age. To the BMR you add the total calories used during the day due to all exercise and activity, which gives you your Active Metabolic Rate.

    I am 6′, 170 lbs and 52 years old. My basal metabolic rate is about 1700 calories burned per day. To that number I can add whatever calories I burn during the day due to activity and exercise. That will tell me approximately how many total calories I will burn up in a day.

    Once you know this number you can eat however many calories you choose in order to lose, gain or maintain your weight. You burn about 3500 more calories than you consume to lose a pound.

    I have a page posted at my website that explains this further. You can also input your own info to see your own numbers as far as calories used in a day.

    Good health and good luck!
