    1. When one's heartrate is at, say 80% max, are you burning a set number of calories no matter what the activity is? i.e if your heartrate is at 150BPM swimming, and 150BPM jogging, will you burn the same amount of calories in both activites?


    2. Would walking 5km and jogging 5km burn the same amount of calories? Why? Jogging is more intense, but walking takes longer so i was curious.


    thanks in advance
