This Is How Long You'd Need to Exercise to Work Off Your Favourite Junk Foods

December 15, 2015 2 min read

Ever hear someone say, "I'm going to exercise hard so I can eat whatever I want today"? Well, a new infographic has revealed how long you'll need to stay moving in the gym in order to balance out noshing on your favorite junk foods. This is how much it takes to burn off your favorite junk food. Like a McDonald's Big Mac? If you're a man, you'll need to do 42 minutes of cardio or 57 minutes of weightlifting. Women will need to do almost an hour of exercise to work off all 490 calories in the sandwich that contains two burgers and three buns. Fifty-one minutes of cardio is needed to neutralize the 24 grams of fat the sandwich contains, or an hour and eight minutes of weightlifting.

The 450g Tesco chocolate fudge cake proved to be the worst, however. The sweet treat has a total of 1,710 calories and 90 grams of fat. Women would need to lift weights for about four hours to work off the calories.

The average woman would also have to do a cardio exercise for about three hours.

The infographic, which was created by BuddyLoans.com, covers other junk foods, too, like a Pizza Express margherita pizza, which has 682 calories and 22 grams of fat.

 This is how much it takes to burn off your favorite junk food.

The average woman would have to spend an hour and a half weightlifting to burn off the pizza, or an hour and eleven minutes of cardio. A man on the other hand would have to do near an hour of cardio and about an hour and twenty minutes of weightlifting.

Fried chicken is hard to work off as well.

This is how much it takes to burn off your favorite junk food.                   There are 726 calories in just three pieces of fried chicken from KFC. To work that off, a woman would have to do a cardio workout for an hour and 15 minutes. Eight pull ups and eight sets of five superset seated rows are recommended to do in order to work off the 42 grams of fat in this portion. This is how much it takes to burn off your favorite junk food.                       A chocolate bar seems to be fairly healthy, with only 237 calories in it. It would take 25 minutes for a woman to run it off. Instead, you could spend 30 minutes weightlifting or doing squats or deadlifts. This is how much it takes to burn off your favorite junk food.                     But food isn't the only problem. A night out at the bar could cause you to consume 245 calories with each pint, which you'd have to run 25 minutes to work off. Were you aware of how much gym time you'd need to cook in order to work off your favourite junk foods? Source: Daily Mail Infographic: Buddy Loans

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
