Heart Rate Training:
How Can My Heart Rate Help Me Get More Out Of Exercise?
Turns out, your heart beat is a pretty big deal.It's actually one of the most important indicators of overall wellness. And it's one of the most effective elements of any fitness program. Your heart rate not only controls your body but also the efficiency of your exercise. By monitoring your heart rate and aiming to stay within your target ranges, you will get the most out of any physical activity.
Your heart rate is the rate at which your heart contracts and is measured in beats per minute. According to the National Institute of Health, the normal adult resting heart rate falls between 60 to 100 beats per minute. To see how your fitness level is progressing over time, measure and track your resting heart rate (before any physical activity) on a weekly basis. As you become more fit, your resting heart rate will get lower.
To get the most out of your physical activity- whether it's walking, dancing or aerobics- you need to make sure you are in your target heart rate zone. The target heart rate zone is typically 50-75% of your maximum heart rate. Find your target zone on the chart below and then spend the majority of your exercise time in that zone to make the most of your effort.
Target Heart Rate Zones
Losing weight and managing to keep it off is a lot easier when you exercise within your target heart rate zone. To determine your target heart rate zone, first subtract your age from 220. That's your maximum heart rate. To get the most out of any exercise, you should target 50% to 80% of your maximum heart rate.
Heart Rate Zones:
- Active Zone (50-60% of maximum heart rate)
Exercising in this zone reduces blood pressure and cholesterol and is ideal for fitness beginners or those on a low-intensity program. Almost all calories burned in this zone are fat calories.
- Training Zone (60-70% of maximum heart rate)
Reaching this zone requires more intense aerobic activity and is perfect for fitness enthusiasts working to burn maximum calories and fat.
- Endurance Zone (70-80% of maximum heart rate)
Exercising in this zone is generally recommended for athletes in training. Primary benefits of this zone are cardiovascular strengthening and elevated caloric burn. Active Zone (50-60% of maximum heart rate) Exercising in this zone reduces blood pressure and cholesterol and is ideal for fitness beginners or those on a low-intensity program. Almost all calories burned in this zone are fat calories.

Who needs a Heart Rate Monitor?

Why use a Sportline Heart Rate Monitor?
By using a HR watch, you can measure and track the intensity of any workout. Here's why this is important. If your goal for example is to burn fat, you should exercise in the Fat Burning Zone which is a range between 55% and 75% of your maximum heart rate where nearly all the calories you burn come from fat. If you're not working too hard or too lightly, a Sportline heart rate watch will know and keep you in the right zone to achieve your fitness goals faster. And it will even calculate how many calories you've burned at the same time. Sportline Heart Rate Monitors are the easiest to use While there's no debate that anyone committed to a healthy, fit lifestyle should use a heart rate monitor, it is true that most on the market are extremely expensive, very complicated and requires the use of a constricting, irritating chest strap. Sportline Heart Rate Watches are totally different. They are extremely easy-to-use and One-Touch technology means there's no need for a chest strap. With the touch of a button, the watch will display ECG accurate heart rate readings in seconds. Sportline Heart Rate Monitors are ECG accurate Sportline Heart Rate Watches are engineered with highly advanced, patented sensors that ensure readings are accurate as an Electrocardiogram (ECG). These watches are not pulse readers. The internal sensors detect electrical signals emitted from the heart with every beat. Uncomfortable chest straps are no longer needed to deliver ECG level accuracy.
Why should I exercise in specific heart rate zones?
To get the most out of your physical activity- whether it's walking, dancing or aerobics- you need to make sure you are in your target heart rate zone. The target heart rate zone is typically 50-75% of your maximum heart rate. Get to know your target zones (below) and then spend the majority of your exercise time in that zone to make the most of your effort. Active Zone: 50% - 60% of maximum heart rate This zone is ideal for fitness beginners on a low to moderate intensity program. Exercising in this zone reduces blood pressure and cholesterol. Fat Burning Zone: 60% - 75% of maximum heart rate Exercising in this zone strengthens the cardiovascular system and nearly all the calories burned are from fats. Endurance Zone: 75% - 85% of maximum heart rate Reaching this zone requires more intense aerobic activity and is perfect for fitness enthusiasts working to burn maximum calories from fat and carbohydrates. Cardiovascular strengthening, increased metabolism and elevated caloric burn are the primary benefits. Benefits of Heart Rate Monitors - Help develop a more effective exercise program - Alerts you if you are exercising outside (too high or too low) of your target rate - Instructs you to speed up or slow down the exercise machine to keep you on target - Since the two main causes of an improper workout are either working too hard or not hard enough, the monitor can help keep you focused As you get more fit, your heart is able to pump more blood with every beat. As a result, your heart doesn't have to beat as often to get the needed oxygen to your muscles, decreasing resting heart rate and exercise heart rate on all exertion levels.
So why do top athletes use Heart Rate Monitors?
A heart rate monitor gives a precise measurement of exercise intensity. Training at your own ideal pace is made possible with a heart rate monitor. Direct measurement of heart rate during exercise is the most accurate way to gauge performance. Progress can be monitored and measured, increasing motivation. It maximizes the benefits of exercise in a limited amount of time. It introduces objective observation. Are you on the right track? Are you improving? It is a tool for regulating frequency and intensity of workouts. Because of the immediate feedback it provides, heart rate monitoring is an ideal training partner.
Why is a lower heart rate an indication of overall health?
The heart moves blood from the lungs (where the blood picks up oxygen) to the muscles (which burn the oxygen as fuel) and back to the lungs again. The harder the training, the more fuel the muscles need and the harder the heart has to work to pump oxygen-rich blood to the muscles. As you get fitter, your heart is able to pump more blood with every beat. As a result, your heart doesn't have to beat as often to get the needed oxygen to your muscles, decreasing resting heart rate and exercise heart rate on all exertion levels.
