Ever been jamming at a festival and wondered just how much of a workout you’re getting? Well, Elite Daily just partnered with EDC to compile the data so you’ll know exactly how many calories you’re burning with your favorite dance moves.
It’s crazy to think just how many festie activities are really just workouts in disguise. Sprinting to the next set will nix 700 calories if you keep it up for an hour, holding that rave bae on your shoulders is serious squatting business, and I know I’m not the only one pumping out calf raises to get that elusive peek of the stage. Also, when Diplo and Skrillex hit you with an “EVERYBODY FUCKIN’ JUMP,” know that following their orders will burn 625 calories per hour.
While it’s cool to know how much of a workout you’re getting, what’s more striking is the importance of nutrition and hydration when you realize how much exercise you’re doing.
Watch the video below, and you’ll finally understand why they call it a twerkout.
