How Many Calories Does Swimming Burn Per Hour

The calories burned swimming is dependent on your weight and intensity. For every pound of body weight swimming burns about 3 calories per mile. For example, at 150lbs swimming pretty hard, a mile in 30 minutes, you will torch about 900 calories per hour. But that is pretty tough to go that hard and that long. Most people swim at a more moderate pace.

How many calories burned swimming a half hour at a moderate pace…
• If you weigh 150 lbs – 285 calories.
• If you weigh 200 lbs – 380 calories.
• If you weigh 250 lbs – 475 calories.
• If you weigh 300 lbs – 570 calories.
• If you weigh 350 lbs – 670 calories.
• If you weigh 400 lbs = 765 calories.
