Q.

How many calories will I burn with the Abs Circle Pro?

Hi, Please can you tell me how many calories are burnt on this machine for say 10 minutes? Thanks

A.

Hi,

The ab circle Pro essentially targets the full combination of the abdominal muscles, however, in a wider sense, the abdominals are essentially quite small as a muscle group and therefore calorie expenditure reflects this. Also the design of the movement involved means the vast range (in the side to side movement) looks more demanding than the movement actually is for the body (due to the use of momentum).  These things considered I would recommend going with a calorie burning figure of 30 calories for a 10minute bout on the Abs circle Pro to prevent overestimation that could negatively affect your food diary calculations.

Hope this helps,

Kelly
