What is the highest amount of calories you've ever burned during a workout session?

According to my latest heart rate monitor my best performance was 492 calories. What about you all?

I just went through the stats on my polar, it says 483 calories but I know for a fact that some of my old HRM's (probably less accurate) clocked me in at over 600 calories I wouldn't take the stats too serious, it should be used as a pin point as to what direction your heading.

1047 calories in one go? Do I dare to ask for how long you were on that step machine?

The most I've burned during one workout session is approx 500 calories.

The highest number of calories I've ever recorded is 683 calories. I'm often pretty close to that number but I've never burned more calories during a workout.

No comment on my recent performances, but in the past I've had 600+ calorie workouts.
