It really doesn't matter because ST burns so few calories. I use the generic "strength training" with whatever intensity listings, and do total tme, not sets or weight.

Hi, Firstly let me say I'm totally impressed with this site and what it offers! Wonderful site. I have a question about the tracker and how it relates to weight training. Historically I've worked out incorporating numerous different resistance and or weight training activities (Presses,curls,squats ,lunges etc...) I've never timed each activity on it's on. I've only ever recorded or made note of the entire work out when done. The SPARKPEOPLE Tracker asks for the minutes spent on each activity as well as sets,reps, and weight.If you don't enter a min value you get 0 for calories burned . Does everyone time every activity, or do you do something like divide your total time by the # of activities performed. Just wondering.
Cheers, Ken (K2) "Good Judgement comes from experience . A lot of that comes from Bad Judgement ".
