Calories Burned in Men's League

Hey there guys,

Okay, playing in a typical, mid-range skill men's league, what would be a typical # of calories burned? My team has 2 or 3 forward lines, depending on the night, and plays 3 * 15 minute stop time periods.

Any ballpark guesses?

Depends on how hard you skate and stuff, but on average, i'm gonna lowball it and say around 250-300 calories

No, certainly not floating around, but just from what everyone has said about HIIT and things along those lines, I just expected much more than 300 or so. But, have never really heard any estimates. I suppose I'm just as curious what a pro would burn, although if both players (men's league and pro) are going 100% then I'm not sure how close they'd be.....

I'd say 250 an hour, a lot more if you're taking lots of shift and working hard, less if you barely skate.

But the other kicker is that the harder you skate, the higher the metabolism boost AFTER you're done. Even after a moderate HIIT session, you burn a couple hundred extra calories over the next few hours. For the first year I played as an adult, my metabolism was jacked up the next day too (felt really warm and hungry all the next day). And yes, I lost a lot of weight playing hockey.

I typically gain weight...

After skating my arse off burning 400 calories... I sit down and drink 4 or 5 - 200 calorie beers.

Damn they are tasty after a good game.

According to that calculator. http://www.flashmavi.com/nutrition_c...e_hockey.shtml

If you play Men's League where games are usually 45 minutes long and if there are 2 lines with even distribution of playing time (22.5 minutes each). Then:

If you weigh
150 lbs. -> 201 Cal
160 lbs. -> 215 Cal
170 lbs. -> 228 Cal
180 lbs. -> 242 Cal
190 lbs. -> 256 Cal
200 lbs. -> 269 Cal
210 lbs. -> 283 Cal
220 lbs. -> 298 Cal
230 lbs. -> 311 Cal
240 lbs. -> 324 Cal

For three lines with even distribution of ice time (15 minutes of game time). Then:
150 lbs. -> 132 Cal
160 lbs. -> 143 Cal
170 lbs. -> 152 Cal
180 lbs. -> 161 Cal
190 lbs. -> 170 Cal
200 lbs. -> 179 Cal
210 lbs. -> 188 Cal
220 lbs. -> 197 Cal
230 lbs. -> 206 Cal
240 lbs. -> 215 Cal

Whether that calculation is accurate is anyone's guess. Plus if you are playing hard then resting, your body will probably burn additional calories after you're done playing. At least if the principles of HIIT are true and apply here.

+1

You probably lose more recovering than you burned playing.

That's a really good site. But another thing to factor in is the cool down time after each shift. You're body's heart rate is going to be elevated, assuming you skate, so you'll be burning calories faster on the bench then you would if you were to be sitting down in your living room.

Sure you can. Back in the middle ages monks used to drink beer instead of eating when they needed to fast.

For me I play once a week in my adult league. Is there even any benefits out of it?
Because I know in weight lifting you can't have more than 3 days rest or something like that..

I guess anything helps, but if that's all you're doing, then probably not much. If you're running and stuff and then instead of running one day you play hockey, sure. Hockey is an intense cardio workout (as long as you bust your ass), so playing is always great for you.

What if on most nights you have one forward line? Even then, your forwards rotate to D?

Then you're probably on life support or standing around your own zone a lot.

What if only 7 guys showed up, like last night?

This thread is a total buzzkill for me. I estimated that I was burning about 500 cals during my games. Dammit!

Those numbers are minimum. You're probably burning on average 400 calories in an hour...from skating hard, I hope, and I think in most league's you get more than 15 minutes of skating time, plus on the bench you have an elevated heart rate when resting.

Also another thing to factor in, for those losing weight, is what you ate. If you ate right before hand, you may have more energy because your body can easily access the energy from what you just ate, but if you play on an empty stomach, you burn calories stored, thus losing weight.

Well I know I burned off a ton of calories yesterday...we just had 2 defensemen, when we got too tired someone on offense would jump back for a minute or two.

Probably played about 38 minutes in the 45 minute game, and its a pretty high level league so its not like I could just coast around.

We won 4-3

Those are the MIN calories burned while on shift. You will also be burning calories while on hte bench during your recovery. If you were to monitor your heart rate you would get a more accurate measure of your work load.

If 15 year olds burn 179 calories playing a single round of boxing on the Wii, which is doubled for the same amount of punches in the same time frame on a real bag...bet you burn way more than that playing a game of hockey w/ 15 minutes of ice time.

here is a list of activities and the amount of average calories burned:

I agree. I burn about 300 calories on a bike in 20 min going at a decent pace. I estimate an hour and a half game youd burn closer to 800-1000 calories.

If that was the case you'd be starved to the point of needing something to eat right away after a game.

Eating after the game has already been discussed
