BMR does not take into account your activities, because it's not meant to. It may be used differently by people talking in gyms, but it's meant to be a term that refers to what calories you'd need to sustain your body in resting state. That is, the amount of calories you'd need to sustain your body if you didn't do any weights or cardio. That shits added on. If you're working out, your maintenance level to keep your current weight is your BMR + calories burned from activities (lifting and exercise).

I mentioned BMR above when talking about people who are trying to lose a lot of weight and how they plan their calorie intake in relation to it.
