Calorie Score and Calorie Rank for Yoga
At dietandfitnesstoday we have a new proprietary concept of a Calories Burned Score© and Calories Burned Rank©. The calorie score is to give an indication of the percentage of the total maximum calorie burn possible from the different yoga activities. The calorie rank is the rank of the activity compared with all other 800 activities in our database to give an indication of the percentage of activities which have a higher or lower calorie burn. A rank of 1 means it is the highest ranking activity in terms or calorie burn and a rank of 100 means it is the activity with the lowest carlorie burn compared with all other activities.
