Chest press demo is here www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercises.asp
?exercise=71


I think what you are referring to is called a seated dumbbell shoulder press www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercises.asp
?exercise=73

Is a chest press where you push weights in a chair and it targets your pecs, abdominals, and shoulders?

Now that SP has a general strength training entry (I assume you're strength training!) I just use that for most of my tracking. It's easier to enter "30 minutes strength training" than whatever 15+ exercises I've done!

Take a browse through the exercise demos at www.sparkpeople.com/resource/lifestyle_cen
ter_detail.asp?id=19
to see if you recognize any of them. There links to upper and lower body exercises there as well.

are the exercises from a class/DVD, machines at the gym, or random stuff you made up?

Classes, the instructor will generally say the name; machines at the gym will have the name printed on it and you might try looking at the exercise demos on spark to see if what you're doing has a name.

A lot of the time, a strength exercise has 2 parts to the name: the first part describes the muscle worked and then the 2nd part describes the movement.

examples: chest press, lat pulldown, bicep curl.

I've been trying to work out more and so far I've been building up to at least 3 days a week. My problem is that sometimes, I don't know the names of the exercises I just did so I can't document them! What can I do?
