- Energy Consumption
The Metabolic Equivalent (MET):
The Metabolic Equivalent (MET) is used to compare the energy consumption of different activities. It determines the metabolism of a human when resting in comparison to his body weight.
The scientific definition:
1 MET means a calorie consumption of 1 kcal per kilogram (=2.2lb) of body weight per hour. (Ainsworth et.al.,1993).
This makes it possible to calculate calorie consumption for different physical activities.
- Sitting; 1MET
- Raking a Lawn (1hr); 4MET
- Walking; 5MET
- Nordic Pole Walking; 7MET
- Jogging (10km/hr); 10MET
