Re: How many calories does drumming burn?


Usually taking a nap afterward helps me. O don't think anyone has ever gone to a doctor to hook them up and test to see how many calories one burn doing aggressive drumming.

And yes it can be quite draining. Just make sure you drink lots of water.

Check out the chart below and look for Music Playing Drums, this chart goes by the weight of the person:

Re: How many calories does drumming burn?


Hardcore drumming influenced thrash, which influenced death-metal, and that is supposed to be about the same as what an Olympic athlete does to their body, I have heard. I wonder how it compares to X country skiing?!?

Re: How many calories does drumming burn?


All in all, I think it depends on how hard you go at it.

Talking Re: How many calories does drumming burn?


Using a website i found, based on my weight (156.5lbs) drumming normally for 2 hours and ten minutes, (ten minutes is from my warm up) i burn 615 calories.

Check it out:
Calories Burned From Music Playing, Drums

The base calculation for this is every hour of playing, you burn 272kcal (based on an average male weighing 150lbs). Hope that helps!

Re: How many calories does drumming burn?


I just plugged my info into one of those calorie counters. As a woman weighing 115 lbs, I burn 103 calories after drumming for 30 minutes! (I also run a few days a week and go to the gym....guess I can skip the 1/2 hr run this morning!)

Re: How many calories does drumming burn?


I don't use drumming as a stand-in for exercise but I figure that any drumming I am doing is going to be at least a small workout, better than laying on a couch!
