I do 4 workouts a week, with 1-1.5 hours of strength training. But when I input my routine into the exercise section, it doesn't take into consideration how many calories are burnt, only for the cardio (which is pretty much spot on with what the equipment i use says).
Is there something im missing?

In the cardio section you can log your strength training as 'Strength training'. However, for an accurate calorie reading during Strength Training, it's best to invest in a HRM smile

Yep, you need to put it in cardio too.
Search the cardio box for strength training. I put calories burned in this, and then list the weights and reps in the strength bit.

Depends on the strength training. If it's a cardio based circuit where your heart rate is constantly elevated, and HRM is not too bad. If it's heavy sets with lots of rests, the HRM is inaccurate. It's designed to work on consistently elevated HR, not the spike-and-recovery you get from heavy sets.

With strength training, I do 8 sets of 8 reps, with 30 seconds gap between each set of reps.
Thanks for the info though.
