    Calorie tracker for weights

    Just wondering, is there a method to track how many calories you burn during lifting?

    can't help, never tracking calories with lifting.

    at that level of analysis I'd rather work on my mental focus/motivation ... just don't think the opportunity cost is there

    There are some fitness tracking watches for weight lifting - you gotta buy them from the USA

    Eg https://www.trainwithnexus.com/data

    It's best to just assume you don't burn any. Energy used for strength training is minimal, likely only a couple of hundred cal/hr.

    I think some mobile app could do it

    Just track your heart rate with your smart watch. It's not like the type of exercise makes a difference how you track it.

    You'll probably burn at most a couple hundy calories in an hour weight session.

    But with resistance training, it's more about the EPOC and having more muscle mass to burn more calories at rest.

    True. The simplest smart watch will do for sure. I got Amazfit Bip for running as this article advised because of built-in GPS tracker and heart rate checker but I guess all of them have those features.
