I didn't notice either until I answered someone's question in one of the message boards, and was informed I was double-tracking my minutes because of the way I track my strength. LOL.

Is it sad that I've never noticed that and I've been on and off this site for about 3 years?

I agree! I like to track my individual exercises (for both personal reference and Sparkpoints) but the minutes it gives are overinflating my minutes!

One solution is to track your total time in the quick tracker, instead of tracking individually.

Or, you could do your reps more slowly, and make them take 5 minutes. ;)

First off, I want to say that I love that SP has the option of fitness plans..I wouldn't know what to do when it comes to strength training. But even going slow as possible, my strength training takes me 15-20 minutes, not the 40 it estimates (based on 5 minutes per exercise). I would love if it would be more like the cardio section, where you choose what exercise you do, but input for how long it took you. I feel guilty recieving a 500 activity minute trophy when I know I didn't put that much time into it.
