Tracking Cardio Calories Burned
You can either use the calorie calculator on the machine you are using, a fitness watch or an online calculator. Remember that all metrics will have a margin for error, nothing will be 100% accurate – just ensure you are consistently using the same metric to track your cardio.
MyFitnessPal has an online calculator which allows you to search for the type of exercise and enter the minutes performed
You can then transfer this data into the cardio column on your spreadsheet.
There are many other online calculators too that you may prefer which is fine, all of which are likely to be somewhat inaccurate – this is fine, it’s what we call a consistent inconsistency. Just make sure you are staying consistent with whatever you use to track calories burned.
