I have recently started working out hard...and it's working, but some of the numbers my heart-rate monitor are spitting back out surprise me. I worked out for an hour of fast paced zumba today, with a warm up and cool down, then some weight lifting, and it said I burned 1320 calories. I know that because I am so heavy it should be easy for me to burn more calories per workout...right? Still, those numbers seem high,especially since that's as much as I'm eating some days (though I try to eat more when I use my heart-rate monitor and see that I've burned so many.)
PS. It is a chest-strap to wrist receiver monitor made by Bowflex.
