Liking the new HR Monitor,…

The new Sportline Duo 1025 Monitor I purchased about a week ago had nothing to do with how good my workout was this evening, It just gave me a few more numbers to track.

I make no bones about being a numbers geek. I keep score of virtually everything, need to if you want to know if you are winning or losing! 

Tonight I crept into the gym at about 4:30, not sure If I even wanted to be there, being I had laid off yesterday I was not giving myself a second pass, glad I went. It turned out to be one of those nights when everything clicks. The deeper you get into your circuit the stronger you feel.

Started as I do all my circuits with about 11 min of warm up.  It took about 37 minutes  to work through NROL FL1 A6 circuit. 10 minutes +/- for the finish circuit. 5 minutes, again, +/- cool down and stretch.

The only exercise I weighted down were the Rotational Lunges, just didn’t want to push the hams too hard. As it turned out I rotated in 2 sets of 20 rep Sumo Squats in the finish circuit.  First set with 40 lbs, second set with 50 lbs, each rep with a 3 second delay inches off the floor. Hams are OK. I really like that exercise.

Finish circuit consisted of Elevated Chair Dips, Sumo Squats, Decline SB Push Ups, 2 seats of 20 reps each.

Total specs for today’s circuit. 64:25 Min.  127 Avg. hr.  156 Peak.

The next numbers are new courtesy of the new monitor, for criteria I set the watch to my target zone of 110 bpm (@ 65%) of max heart rate as a low threshold and 155 bpm (@ 90%) as the ceiling.

7:10 min. below zone, 56:27 in zone,  .48 sec. above.  101g fat burned, 782 cal.

  2. I knew the alternative was going to be going home and eating something I shouldn’t!
    Glad I chose the gym.

    I have been following your numbers for this challenge, you are doing a solid job. Like you said, determination and dedication! Great showing against the guys, I have faith that you are going to out do them!

    And there is one of the reasons I do not get a HR monitor – I am OCD on that stuff. It will make me crazy. But – it obviously works for you. Glad that you were able to do thos squats and you are back in form. Kepp up the great work.
