This makes the second week of hittin up the gym. Now if I could only do more than walk that would be great...But I can't.... pfftt
So what I really wanted to talk to ya'll about was those fancy, dancy machines at the gym. You know the ones I'm talking about. Some of them have a screen so you can watch TV (really who doesn't love to sweat to a good episode of The Walking Dead no
spoilers I'm still trying to catch up.) Most if not all have the heart rate monitor and it tells you how many calories you burn.
Don't believe it!! They are big fat liars.
I used to get so excited when I would finish up on the elliptical and see I had burned over 500 calories. That is until I got a heart rate monitor, then I found out the truth I was burning any where from 50-100 calories less that what I thought.
So now I always, ok almost always, wear my heart rate monitor when I'm working out even at the machines. It's the best way (I think) to get an accurate number on how many calories you burn.
The difference between the elliptical and my HRM for a 30 min. workout
Finally worked up a sweat... Probably for the first time in 6weeks! #roadtorecovery
*in case you want to know I just have the basic Polar FT4 HRM in (pink of course) that I got on Amazon.
What's your favorite way to burn those calories?
