The calorie counts for cardio are great, but if you spend a day doing weight training, you aren't able to net calories. Is there a way for those calories to be counted as well?

make your own weight training exercise in MFP under cardio. Also, use this...I've found it to be pretty accurate:

exercise > CARDIO > add exercise > Search "strength training" if it asks for the minutes of activity you're in the right spot

use
exercise > STRENGTH > add exercise > to track progress over time with weight sets and reps.

Thanks so much! I just discovered the Strength Training in Cardio this morning. Still on the fence as to whether it was "vigorous" or not
