    How many calories does weightlifting burn?

    Hey so I tracked my calories yesterday because I want to go on a lean bulk (200-300 cals above maintenance) and yesterday I calculated 2750 calories thinking I'm above maintenance, keep in mind I worked out for around 1 hour, however I woke up a a lighter weight today of 67.2kg compared to 67.5kg. (Weighed around same time and after pissing/****ting).

    I am really surpised that 2750 is below my maintenace even though I'm quite small (67kg 5'9). I'm thinking I need to go about 3000 calories for my lean bulk but I feel like it's going to be hard to consume those calories as healthy foods and I don't want to eat junk food.
    How many calories do you think around 1 hour of weightlifting burns, with 2 min rest times between sets, I don't do any cardio.

    1 day is not enough to determine maintenance. You need more like 2 weeks of more of daily weigh ins and calorie counts

    You are most likely just reacting to water weight shifts.

    To answer your original question, about 1-200 calories for a typical 45 min session

    When lifting weights, your body works at anywhere from 3 METs (if you're putting in light effort) to 6 METs (if you're really working your butt off). For a 150-pound person, that's anywhere between 200 and 400 calories per hour.

    For me, I would estimate an hour in the gym burns 150 - 200 calories at best.

    Not directly related to your question, but I strongly believe that exercise is a pretty terrible (and tortuous) way of trying to burn calories - eating less is far easier and more effective :-)

    I wear a Polar Vantage watch. For m a typical 45min weight lifting session I burn calories in the range of 300-450. This fluctutes depending on which muscle group I focus, and the overall intensity too. These numbers were also in line when I wore an older generation Polar watch with the heart rate monitor strap aginst my chest too!
