A new study by researchers at Stakester, an international award-winning video game app, shows that playing video games for two hours can save the same calories as doing a thousand exercises in a row.
In the study of 50 volunteers, researchers used smart devices to measure heart rate and calories burned while playing. FIFA e Call of Duty: Warzone for two hours. The same people’s calorie burn was also measured while they did a set of sit-ups.
The players burned an average of 210 calories per hour during the experiment, while the female players lost about 236 calories during the same period. In two hours of online gaming, the cost was equivalent to the cost of A sit-in.
Tom Ferry, CEO and founder of Stakester, told the newspaper daily Mail He had hoped for results that would prove calories burned during activity, but was surprised to learn how many burned during a two-hour match.
“We all know competition increases our heart rate and most of us have experienced the ‘game sweat’ that occurs when you’re looking for a last-minute goal in FIFA or in a tough situation in Warzone,” said Tom Ferry, CEO.
