I think that's because your exercise is counted by minutes and calories burned

on my ST days, I just divide my total w/o time amongst the exercises I did.

for example - 60 min of upper body would be

5 min bicep curls
5 min hammer curls
5 min triceps
10 min shoulders
10 min lat pulldowns
10 min lat rows
5 min overhead press
10 min chest press

hope that helps

I don't understand how you're supposed to add "minutes" to a strength training session... it asks for reps - ok - for number of sets - ok - asks for the weight used all ok!
How am I supposed to know how many minutes it takes to lift a 40lbs weight 12 times and repeat it 3 times?
What am I missing?
