If I can't find something I use the calculator on healthstatus.com then add new exercise.

Thank you. I had no idea what to call it, so couldn't find anything. Aerobics will work just fine.

Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

If these twists are part of an exercise routine you do, you could log it as aerobics - general - low impact. There is no way to know for sure how many calories you burn doing these twists. Even if you wore an HRM or a Body Bugg, that would still be a rough guess-timate at best.

I would say that if you do a series of exercises as part of a routine you do, log it under aerobics low impact or under yoga if this is a stretching type routine.

I want to track something simple like twisting from the waist. That exercise is on plenty of videos, but not on the demos. I have no idea what to call it or how many calories or or? This is quite frustrating. This is not the only one, but the one I do a lot at work & would like to keep track. Any ideas?
