Adding Weights to the Exercise Routines TheNewJSB — Dec 17, 2016 09:32PM PST

Back on 05/10/2016, I asked this same question. The link that was given for a 2013 article was bad, it didn't work. However, the guy who sent a stmt. to your mgt. about why MFP hasn't fixed this and he'd already been using it for 3 years, blew me away. For me, it's been just about 2 years, as MFP was recommended by a doctor. However, I just want to add 3-lb. weights. Why isn't something so common there by default? Exactly whom are you trying to target for your audience?

Consider doing [for both food and exercise] some basic listings that a person can use until they have time to customize. They can be placeholders, so to speak. Are you concentrating more on the clothing and equipment pieces of the business, which is why this has been neglected for so long? Just wondering.

Thank you for following up with us and continuing to share your feedback on what would enhance your experience. Sorry for any trouble with the link that we provided previously. Please try this one instead

You should be able to add your 3 lb weights if you first search for the name of the exercise i.e. bicep curls. Once selected you will be asked to enter the Number of sets you performed, how many Repetitions per set and the amount of Weight used.

You also mentioned having a basic listing for when you don’t have time to enter the specifics. You may also use the “Strength training (weight lifting, weight training)” entry found cardiovascular if you don’t have time to search for a specific exercise and fill in those fields.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
