Mountain climbers are tracked like cardio- there are a certain number of calories burned per minute, so the number of reps you do doesn't affect the calories burned. It's the total time tracked that determines calories burned.

Can someone explain to me why if I do 60 mountain climbers 5 minutes the calories burned on the Spark tracker will show more burned than if I hustle and do all of them in 1 or even 2 minutes? This doesn't make sense to me? I assume no tracker is 100%, but...?
