Calories burned is always a rough estimate, so you could be burning more, but if that is the number that Skimble says, you should know that it is a VERY rough estimate, and you're likely to be burning less....

But to get to your question, to burn a pound of fat, it is said that we have to burn around 3000 calories, so if you do that workout for six days, and don't let your body replace the burned calories by eating more, which your body will definitely try to get you to do, well then you should lose a pound. It sounds simple but since everything is such rough guesswork for how much you're actually eating and burning, getting reliable results is still a bit difficult.
