I have been weight training for a while. I know how to do an appropriate program. The pin is in.
So I have gone from a bulk that really was too long for my body fat and have reduced my calories to a level of a typical 2lb/wk dieter (I hate that word). In the past, I never logged my weight training. Now though, with other things “onboard” I need to make sure i’m not way underfeeding. This leads me to my question:
I use Loose it to log my food. It has an area for exercise and when I enter my lifting it gives me 400 cal or so. I use Jetfit to track my lifts on my tablet. That data syncs into Google fit and shows me burning like 1,000. That 1,000 then feeds back to my Loose it (since I don’t log exercises directly in loose it, though you can.
I need to know what I can expect for a fairly intense 75+ min lifting session - all out. This helps me know I am at a small deficit, without having no chance to maintain muscle.
This post makes sense to me but hit me back if I need to clarify. What is a realistic burn for 75 min lifting?
