    Here is a question. I am perhaps going back to playing American Football. My training is weekly and lasts about 3 hours. How would I work out activity points? I am not sure how to describe the intensity of it? Any pointers?

    i would go as per that chart thing that you get with the folder, Intensity levels range from 1 to 3. whereby level 1 you can still hold a conversation and are able to sing etc. level 3 you can speak but you cant sing and are sweating after 10 mins.

    could someone correct me if i have got this wrong.

    i would definitely class as high intensity for american football, but i suppose it depends on your fitness level - maybe count it as moderate to be safe?

    if you want the formula for working out how many AP you earn have a look at my very first diary post.. its in there :) x
