Add Exercise to Your MyFitnessPal Diary on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, nitid, Eng
Hi. You're watching VisiHow, and today I am going to show you how you can add exercise to your Diary on the MyFitnessPal app on the iPhone 6.
To begin, we should unlock the phone, which we can do by pressing the Lock button located on the right-hand side of the handset.
Alternatively, we can press the big, round button at the bottom of the screen called the Home button.
This brings up our Lock screen, where we can simply swipe to the right and enter our Passcode, or just hold a finger to the Home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner as well.
Once we are at the Home screen, we should find the MyFitnessPal app.
On this personalized Home screen, it is in a folder. The icon is blue with a silhouette of a person jumping in white. The top left corner of the app has a gray tab, which looks to be a dumbbell. Tap that once to open up the app.
It will take us straight to the Home page, which has the Calories Remaining for the day, the option to Connect, Blog Posts, and status updates and information from our friends.
What we need is this bottom bar that has five different options. We need the middle option indicated with the blue circle with the white plus sign inside. Simply tap that once to bring up a new option.
Since we are adding Exercise, of course we are going to tap "Exercise" on the right-hand side which is yellow and indicated by a dumbbell symbol. Tap it once to add Exercise.
It gives us the option now to select "Cardio" or "Strength." Let's say "Cardio" for now.
Now, we can simply go to one where we've already entered some exercise or search using the white bar along the top.
Tap in the bar and type in "Jogging" for example.
Then press "Search" in the bottom right corner.
Now, we can see options for Jogging in different speeds that other people have entered in the MyFitnessPal community.
If we feel that we were jogging ten minutes at six miles per hour, we'd press that. We won't have to edit very much here at all.
If we have a ten minute mile, let's just type in 15 minutes, for example, using the keypad at the bottom of the screen. The "Calories Burned" changes depending on how much we've jogged.
Then we can select exactly what time we started as well. Using the scrolling menu at the bottom, we can select 11:54.
Then press the white checkmark in the top right-hand corner.
That will save to "Cardio Exercise", "Running (jogging)".
We'll see at the top, the Calorie Intake has the Food plus Exercise. It gives us more calories that we can intake for the day.
Press the plus sign at the bottom of the screen again.
Then press the yellow "Exercise" dumbbell.
We can also go under the Search bar, where we have the options "Frequent" and "My Exercises," which are the ones we've entered ourselves. On the right, there is "All Exercises," where people have things we might have done in alphabetical order. We have the option to choose from "Aerobics", "Belly dancing", "Bowling", "Dancing" again, and "Elliptical Trainer". Every thing is in alphabetical order.
Whichever one we like, simply tap on it. They even have "Horse grooming" as well, so it's quite extensive. We can just tap "Line dancing" for this example. Again, when we fill in the Minutes Performed it changes the "Calories Burned" depending on how intensive the exercise workout is.
Then in the top right-hand corner tap the white checkmark again to save.
We can see now that it's added even more onto our Exercise.
Now, we can simply tap the Home icon in the bottom left corner, which is the picture of a house, to return to our main menu.
