Actual Calories Burned
Friday, May 14, 2010
Ok... so I don't know if anyone else has addressed this before, but I'd like to know. I'm always trying to mix up my workouts to keep me active. But with variety, comes confusion. I did Zumba the other day and it was an awesome workout, but there was nowhere on the fitness tracker to accurately log my workout, so I logged it under fast dancing/salsa...or something like thata. Also when I'm swimming, I'm not doing freestyle or solely any one method of swimming. Mostly, I swim laps wearing my fins so that my legs get a good workout and then I'll do separate water exercises for my arms. So, when I go to log my workout, I have to improvise for that too.
So it got me thinking... I mean, exactly how hard am I working out? So, I keep hearing that heart rate monitors are really good. So I'm going to starting looking for a really good one that can be used for swimming as well as other exercises.
Can anyone recommend a good one??
