For sample adults who had participated in callisthenics in the past 2 weeks (EXCALIS), EXCALISMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent doing callisthenics each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

After determining that a respondent participated in callisthenics, respondents were first asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you do callisthenics?" (EXCALISNO). They were then asked, "On the average, about how many minutes did you spend doing callisthenics each time?" EXCALISMIN reports the answer to this last question.
