Burpees, an intense exercise, burn an average of 10 calories per minute. The exact number of calories burned depends on an individual's weight and the length of time he performs the exercise.
A person weighing 155 pounds is capable of burning more than 560 calories in an hour by performing burpees nonstop. A person weighing 130 pounds is capable of burning roughly 470 calories in an hour. The heavier a person is, the more calories he is able to burn while performing the exercise. A person weighing 205 pounds, for example, is likely to burn about 745 calories by performing burpees for an hour.
