# Incline Walk Calories Calculator

Calories Burned:

Introduction: The Incline Walk Calories Calculator helps estimate the calories burned during an incline walk, a popular form of cardiovascular exercise. This calculation takes into account the duration of the walk and the walking speed.

Formula: The formula used to calculate the calories burned during an incline walk is based on the Metabolic Equivalent of Task (MET) value, weight, and duration. The formula is as follows: Calories Burned=(MET value×Weight in kg)×(Duration in hours)Calories Burned=(MET value×Weight in kg)×(Duration in hours) For incline walking, the typical MET value is 4.0.

How to Use:

1. Enter the duration of your incline walk in minutes.
2. Enter the speed of your walk in miles per hour.
3. Click the “Calculate” button.
4. View the estimated calories burned in the result section.

Example: For instance, if you walk on an incline for 30 minutes at a speed of 3.5 mph, the calculator estimates the calories burned during that activity.
