I would not log standing as exercise. Rather, factor it into your activity level.
Hi guys - those of you who start with exercise level 'sedentary' and add on exercise - do you count time standing at a standing desk?
According to Runner's World, using a standing desk burns an extra 163 calories per day:http://www.runnersworld.com/health/using-standing-desk-boosts-calorie-burn
I have a question on this, I usually work between 9 and 11 hours, if I put in the 660 minutes of standing at my desk based on the numbers I get from different places then I burn 2k calories standing, now granted I am 400 pounds, but there is no way that is right is there?
Perfect, thank you both, for some reason I wasn't wrapping my head around it and thinking BMR plus standing at my desk when I should have been thinking BMR IS standing at my desk.
Got it all sorted now.
