Hi everyone! I know this is probably a really easy problem for you guys but I want to estimate how much energy a person uses when it goes to the gym. The joules or watts needed to move the weight.

Let's say for example when a person is doing overhead press and lifts 50kg 40cm up and then 40cm down ten. It takes 1 second going up and 2 seconds going down. How would you calculate that? Can you please detail the calculation so I can use it for other exercises.

I dont even train but I was thinking about how an amazing machine the human body is and I got curious.

Hopefully this is interesting for more people!

Thanks!!!
