General Diet Plans and Questions - Tracking calories burned with resistance bands

11-15-2010, 01:54 PM
I recently got some resistance bands and plan on alternating using them on days that I don't do my cardio (so 3x per week and cardio 3x per week with 1 day off) 20-30 minutes of different types of exercise using the bands much as you would weight machines.

I use livestrong/myplate to track my calories and exercise but they don't have resistance band as one of the options. I've seen the resistance band workouts refereed to as circuit training. Is that how I should track that exercise?

I like to track my net calories (eaten - burned) daily.

Thanks everyone!

I'm having the same problem as you. I searched "resistance band exercises calories burned" on google. The first link, "Calories Burned - SparkPeople: 20-Minute Resistance Band Workout Video", has a free calories burned calculator where you enter your weight in pounds and how many minutes you spent exercising and it tells you how many calories you burned.
