Can playing drums help lose weight?

            It is highly unlikely that any drummer will admit that they took up the drums to lose weight, however, burning calories is definitely a by-product of playing the drums. Any type of activity that elevates the heart rate will result in the burning of calories and therefore losing some amount of weight would be inevitable. 

            The key is the constant movement of the upper and lower body for a constant period time which causes the heart rate to be raised to high enough levels that will result in the burning of as many 200 calories per one-hour session.
