I am a Cart Pusher at Costco and never really thought about using my job as a way to get my cardio done, but damn it's a hell of a workout. To put it simply anyone wanna take a shot and how many calories i burn in a 5 hour shift?
I'll have to say I run every other row of baskets i pick up, but of course get the usual water break every 3 loads of carts I bring up.
Going on a cut or bulk is gonna be a hell of a task to pinpoint the calories burned; I compare my workout to a 5 hour session of HIIT. The intensity is of course less than a 20 min HIIT but duration is damn long.
One website pushing a baby stroller for 15 mins is 90 calories burned for my weight...in a 5 hour session that's 2880 calories burned!!!! I never expected to burn that many calories, and would have to adjust my food intake considerably...I estimated it to be around 1800-2000 in actuality.
I know it's extremely variable but someone help me out.
