Any workout done at a high intensity can increase the calories burned. If someone wants to develop a healthy and strong body, adding anaerobic exercises such as pull ups into your routine is a smart and effective way to go about it.
The calories burned per pull up varies from person to person, but by calculating how many can be done in a minute we can use it as a base to work from.
In 2014 (Vezina, Der, Campbell, Meckes, and Ainsworth,) a small study was done to determine the effectiveness of four anaerobic exercises. This included curl ups, lunges, push-ups and pull ups. We’ll focus on the last one. Pull-ups were shown to burn about 10 calories per minute per 10 pull ups, varying slightly by weight and fitness. At this pace, over the course of 50 pull ups and five minutes you can burn about 50 calories. Most people will only be able to do two or three sets of this, meaning that their 20 to 30 pull ups will burn 20 to 30 calories. That is to say, average of calories burned per pull up is about 1 kcal. Doing 10 pull ups can burn approximately 10 calories.
The number of calories burned per pull up can be a useful piece of information to have, but the most reliable way to measure calories burned is based on the time spent on a workout.
According to the <<2011 The Compendium of Physical Activities>>, Pull-ups has a MET value of 8.0 METs at a vigorous pace. At a moderate pace, the value drops to 3.8 METs, meaning that simply lowering the effort put in can cut the MET value in half. METs measure the energy expended during an activity and is a very useful tool to determine the most effective workouts for someone who is trying to lose weight.
Pull-ups calories burned per minute = METs x 3.5 x weight (kg) / 200
If we bring back our formula of METs x 3.5 x bodyweight in kg/200, we can determine more precisely the calories burned per minute.
In our previous example, Dave weighed 81 kg and burned 11.34 calories in a minute. If someone were looking to lose weight and weighed 91 kg, how many calories would they burn in a minute? When put into the formula, we get 12.74 calories. The lighter you are, they less you will benefit from pull ups when it comes to burning calories, but even someone as light as 68 kg can burn up to 9.5 calories per minute. These numbers show how effective it can be to add pull ups into your calorie-burning routine.
If someone weighed 81 kg and could average 10 pull ups per minute, how many pull ups would it take to burn 100 and 500 calories? That will take some math. Knowing that we can burn 11.34 calories per minute we can determine how long it will take to burn 500 calories by dividing it. 500/11.34= ~44 minutes. So that would be about 440 pull ups over the course of 44 minutes to burn 500 calories. In the same way, the person will burn 100 calories in 90 pull-ups (about 9 minutes).
However, the results are only from mathematical calculation. very few people can do 90 pull-ups in a short time.
It’s not an easy thing to achieve this goal (doing 90 pull-ups ) for people who don’t exercise often. This would take some serious strength, but it is good to look at the overall potential of a workout. You may finish this task in 10 or 20 days. However, if you want to burn calories through this way, it’s not advisable. There are so many exercise workout which can burn more calories in a short time for your choice, such as running, walking, cycling and swimming.

Someone may want to reduce fat or lose weight through doing pull-ups.
As everyone knows, a total of 3,500 calories equals 1 pound of body fat.
Below Let us take an example with a 150-pounds person who can average 10 pull ups per minute. Still this formula: METs x 3.5 x weight (kg) / 200 = 8.0 x 3.5 x 68 / 200 = 9.5 calories per minute.
It means that he should do 3680 pull ups to burn 3500 calories and lose a pound.
Compared to other aerobic exercise like running, cycling and walking, the amount of pull-ups calories burned are not encouraging. For this reason, maybe you should not set a goal of reducing fat when you do pull-ups.
This brings us to the last point, which is to highlight the general effectiveness of bodyweight exercises for burning calories and losing weight. At the end of the day, burning calories and a healthy diet will determine how quickly someone can lose weight. Adding pull ups into your routine can help push you toward a goal beyond just calorie burning. To be able to complete a single pull up is an accomplishment.
