Why I am wanting to know how many calories I burn lifting weights?
I am logging my calories
After my second gym session I wondered “how many calories are burnt lifting weights” as I am using MyFitnessPal to log my calorie intake (food and drinks) and my calorie expenditure (just exercise and much more loosely).
What I realised while researching calories burnt lifting weights
Many sources don’t have this info
So I started trying to find sources and lifting weights calorie calculators and found out that many possible sources don’t include calories calculated for lifting weights. I can sort of understand this not being included in most posts, calculators etc. as the lifting weights part of a gym session (non-aerobic gym exercises) consist normally of many machine and or dumb/bar bell exercises and most would not consider inputnig this info iinto a calculator so specifically, thus most sites/people dont supply this information.
