    Calories burned during heavy squats.

    I did a heavy singles squating session and it went like this.
    Squats: 300x1 320x1 330x1 (trying to go for a 350lb, 10lb PR, but ive apparently gotten a bit weaker in the last 1-2 months)
    Box squats: 330x2 330x1 300x1 300x4 300x7
    Hip thrusts: 260x 10 280x8 280x9
    The a 10min 1 mile run.

    The lifting session took 75min not counting the 10min warmup and the 10min run.

    Im 146lb so im guessing ~100 cal for the run and maybe 400cal for the rest. Sound right?

    Don't count on squatting burning a lot of calories. You burned more with the run.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Yea, i know running burns more then lifting but hard 75min of heavy leg work definitely burned more then the light 10min run at the end. Im just trying to figure out if my assessment seems correct because i cant find any info online and if i do the sorces give vastly different results.

    At your size, you didn't burn "400cal" for the hour lifting unless you somehow managed to keep your heart rate up around 130 BPM for literally the entire hour.

    Probably more like 225-250ish for the leg work.

    How long did you rest between sets/reps? You did a total of 18 squats.

    I probably did 3-4min of rest during the first 4 sets of squats or so. I was trying to go for a PR today so thats why i didn't do as much volume and whatnot. I normally do 4 sets of 300lb for 3-5 reps (working for 4sets x 5reps) followed by (depending on what I feel is causing weakness) a slow eccentric squat with 3ish seconds of pause at the bottom or i pyramid up in deadlifts to 270-300lb for 5-7reps. After that I'll do hip thrusts or some other assistance work.
    I say "hard" because that 330lb felt like a 9.5 RPE and the preceding box squat then felt really hard, that is until I hit a second wind and was able hit a easy RPE 6..? Set. I was debating doing 3-4 Sets of deadlifts but i figured I've been going for 75min
    My main goal is to just keep my strength (or gain some) cause im cutting rn and dont have that same energy or power rn so im cutting the volume overall rn.

    It doesn’t burn enough to make much of a difference in your tracking especially if it leads to eating more due to the hunger it causes.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
