  3. The next time you upload a workout to Garmin Connect from your device it will sync to your TrainingPeaks account immediately. Previous workouts from Garmin Connect will not sync to TrainingPeaks until you have uploaded one new activity. Historic workouts can take up to 7 days to sync to TrainingPeaks - do not disconnect your accounts during this time. You will not be able to attempt the history sync again and will then need to import all of your previous workouts manually.

If you are not using a Garmin Scale you can also manually enter your weight in Garmin Connect and that will sync to TrainingPeaks. No other manually entered values will sync. There is no option to sync previous body composition data.
