Walking with 1 pound weights lmuller53 — Jan 22, 2017 12:55PM PST

How many more calories would you burn if you walked at 3.5 mph for 5 miles curling 1 pound weights? MyFitnessPal calculates the walk but not the additional calories curling the weights.

Hey thanks for posting your question. While you may log the bicep curls separately the question of calorie burn is not that easy. There are always some exercises that vary for each individual, making the calories burned difficult to calculate accurately. If you know roughly how many calories you are burning with a device like a heart rate monitor or activity tracker, you can override the calories burned field by tapping directly on it and then put in your information. You can also add a new exercise yourself, called walking with 1 lb weights. Just go to “cardiovascular” and then “create new exercise.” Your estimate will be added to your personal database, and not the main database.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
