Strength Training Calories

If I understand this correctly this website does not give any credit for calories burned during strength training. Is it fair for me to find calories burned while doing various exercises and applying to that to my calories burned each day?

    You can find the exercise/lift under "cardio" and log it that way. It doesn't log calories burned because there is really not a great way to decipher calories burned during strength training, and in fact the calories burned are very very small. I've been lifting and dieting/tracking macros and calories for 3 years and have no logged my lifting once. It falls into my "lightly active" lifestyle.

    Search for strength training under the cardio section to get a burn estimate

    You can get calories credited if you select strength training in the cardio option

    You can log the amount of time for "strength training" under the Cardiovascular section to get an estimate for Calories burned. You can use the Strength Training section to log sets, reps, and weights, but that section does not account for the amount of time or Calories burned.

    If you weight change is greater than you want, just adjust your caloric intake accordingly.
