I thought the same thing until I used it. The calculator is for finding an exercise that burns X calories in Y minutes, so it's useful for finding alternatives for cardio. After you input the values it gives you a list of exercises.
But now I'm wondering how to interpret the minutes. Is a 50 minute weightlifting workout 50 minutes or, if I subtract the pauses in between sets, 17 minutes?
In case of the latter the amount of calories burnt during weightlifting would be similar to walking.
