If you spend 5 minutes every day doing vigorous sit ups you will burn approx. 48 to 60 calories per day depending on your weight.
If your weight is 180 lbs, 54 calories.
If your weight is 200 lbs, 60 calories.
The interesting thing is that if you do this every day for a month those calories add up. Anywhere from 1440 to 1800 calories.
When you consider that there is 3500 calories in 1 lb. of body fat it makes you realize what a little 5 minute exercise can do over a period of a year. That 5 minutes over 365 days adds up to 5 to 6 lbs.
Now imagine instead of 5 minutes you did something else... like jog a mile every day for a year.
Jogging a Mile = 105 calories if you weigh 160 lbs.
118 calories if you weigh 180 lbs.
131 calories if you weight 200 lbs.
The end result is jogging a mile daily burns 11 to 14 lbs of fat per year. A mile isn't really that far either. The average person can jog a mile in 10 minutes easily.
NOW IMAGINE DOING BOTH! Do sit ups for 5 minutes then go for a 10 minute jog every day. That will burn 16 to 20 lbs of fat per year. Combined with a balanced diet and you will have a body that many people would envy.
