Entering Exercise Time pincerz22 — May 21, 2019 12:07PM PDT

I'm assuming that the 'How Long'section where I enter how often I plan to exercise to reach my goal, is being entered in minutes, but I'm unsure. Hours or minutes?

You are correct, minutes.

Adding an exercise to your diary is similar to adding a food. Just take the following steps:

On the Web​

  • Click on the “Exercise” tab, then click “Add Exercise” under the type of exercise you’d like to log.

In the App

  • Tap the large blue “+” button, then tap “Exercise”
  • Choose either “Cardiovascular” or “Strength.”

Type the name of an exercise in the search box and press the “Search” button — (on software keyboards, you’ll find it in place of the “Return” key). You’ll be shown a list of exercises in our database that match your search.

Select the item you’d like to add to your diary, then enter the number of minutes for a cardio exercise, or the number of sets, reps, and weight for a strength exercise. Finally, select “Add” or “✓​” (apps) or “Add Exercise to Diary” (site).

That’s it. Your exercise should be logged in your diary.

All the best,
MyFitnessPal Staff
