Based on another recent thread I thought I might see what sort of Calories I could knock off in an hour. My trainer was unavoidably called out of town so I was on my own. According to my journal, this was the biggest Calories from just weight lifting all year, probably in much longer than that (I usually have some elliptical or something like that in my higher Calorie workouts). So if you hate cardio but love lifting? No problem. Lift.
