So I invested in my first HR monitor and just want to know if anyone has used the Polar Ft60 and has any feedback on it?
My wife uses one for her marathon training
Solid piece of equipment
i have that model and love it.
yah I have used it the past couple days and am very impressed
I use it just about every time I workout, even lifting. Curious, how long of a workout(s) have you been getting in and how many cals does it state you burnt.
I can hit over 1k cal burnt on my 90 mins days that includes misc WUs, 10 min treadmill run and some heavy lifting. Esp legs days.
Im poor so had to go for the ft-4 but if the 60 is anything like mine its agood tool.Only thing i dont like is the chest strap as it likes to slide down at times but all in all very good.Avg 750cals for 1hour and wanting to go longer then mybe another 30min as im working out fasted in morning(bcaa's and going)
try making the strap tighter. i think all the good constant monitors use the strap on chest.
I used it yesterday for a 90 minute workout and got just Over 800 cal that was with lifting included with some jogging. On my arm days it's not too much I would think I burn more than it is saying as I feel more fatigued.Originally Posted by tjwoody
Nice! I used mine at a cross fit class and hit over 700 in the hour. Clearly I need to push harder ha haOriginally Posted by tjwoody
ive compared my cardio with conditioning and weights sessions and the weights sessions def burn the most. however as my conditioning improves those sessions are catching up!
Do you circuit train? I don't get too much from weights besides leg day
Fair enough. I'm really impressed with it. Don't know how I worked out without it before lol
