I agree with both. Don't get too hung up one "exact". Use "strength training" for the tracker to get your time and points, the important part with strength training is *increase*. Keep track in you head or a notebook or whatever so that you know that you did harder (more weight), faster (circuits), longer (more time, more sets) over time. As you build up time and sets, drop them back when you add more weight and build them up again... repeat. Good luck with it. The most important part, of course, is to make sure it doesn't become a place to hang clothes, so never, ever quit!

If you're going to build strength and need to know how much resistance you used today in order to use more resistance tomorrow or next week ... use the method of recording that makes most sense to you. It might be as simple as a list kept on paper and available everytime you exercise. OR maybe you want to enter them on SP and look them up there.

I would just use one of the generic "strength training" entries in the fitness tracker and add your total time instead of adding each exercise individually.

Hope that helps,

So I just bought Gold Gym's Home Gym Door Gym (hope that made sense), I've done some exercises on it and was wondering how I would record them on the tracker. The exercises I have done were bicep curls, rows, lateral raises, tricep kickbacks, chest press. It is like resistance bands and the cable machine you fine at the gym.

Food For Thought
NO ONE IS PERFECT. WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES IN LIFE. ITS HOW WE MOVE PAST THEM THAT DEFINES US ALL. IF YOU LOOK INTO THE PAST TO TRY TO FIX THE FUTURE THE FUTURE WILL BE BLURRED. IF YOU ARENT WILLING TO CHANGE NOTHING WILL CHANGE. IF YOU LET HATE GUIDE YOU IN LIFE YOUR LIFE WILL HAVE NO PURPOSE.
