      No, that is not true. If you are wheeling uphills and your heart is pounding you are using 158 cal in 30 minutes. To wheel normal is only 89 cal in 30 minutes. And that is if you have bigger muscles in your arms then normal.

                So does this meAn if I wheel outside for an hour & I'm 230lbs.....

                2.6 Wheeling outside x 230lbs (104kg) x 1
                2.6 x 104 x 1 = 270 calories burnt?

                        quad247

                        Unfortunately, even though it is hard work for quads they don't burn as many calories because they dont have the larger upper body muscle mass of paras.
