Default How many calories using resistance bands?

I'm trying to get a handle on calories burned using resistance bands (I've got a set of Bodylastics). Is it similar to weight lifting? Moderate or vigorous effort? I realize that the number varies with body weight as well as the number and type of exercises done as well as the intensity.

My guess is at 180-185 lbs, doing upper body exercises pretty steadily for about 30 minutes (say a dozen exercises, @12 reps, with 30-60 second rest), I am burning around 260 calories per hour.

Any thoughts?
