I do the same as Dragonchilde; it's too hard to try to list all the exercises you do, and that goes for other strength exercises too. emoticon

I'm with LTWORIDE. Unless you are tracking progress specifically, there's not much point in entering each exercise individually. Today, I entered a general strength training entry, and then tracked the individual weight/reps in the notes. (You can see how I did it, my fitness tracker is public.) Just easier to try and track.

If the exercise isn't in the database, you can enter your own exercise and the reps/sets (weights if used) and time. The calories burned is based on the time. Strength training doesn't burn a lot of calories. For me, 1 minute for the plank is about 3 calories (according to this site). I just go with whatever the site tells me.

Plank and bicycle should be in the database, so if you put in the reps and time, it will give you a number of calories. I'm not sure about the others, but strength training is a pretty minimal calorie burn, so I'd just put down whatever the database lists for bicycle for the other exercises, too.

I am starting back doing my core exercises that a trainer at a gym showed me but not sure how to enter them in my activity tracker. I see where it says enter your own exercise and lists minutes and calories. A sample of what I did this morning and each one I count to 25 (really fast lol)
plank -
bicycle
flutter kick - laying on back alternately raising legs up and down
flutter kick with crunch
mule kicks

I didn't notice the time I spent but I did 3 sets of each one of these. Don't have a clue how many calories to put down either

Thanks
