Burning over 600 calories in 1 hour will have most people working out fairly hard. And figures of 800 and above require a pretty serious level of fitness to sustain for 1 hour. 1320 in 1 hour just isn't feasible.
A couple of possibilities here.
Firstly, some HRM's default to a weight based on kilograms (1 kg = 2.2 lbs). So entering your weight in lbs can lead to a massive overestimation of calories burned. You may want to check your HRM;s settings.
Secondly, some medications or high blood pressure can lead to an accelerated heart rate above what the exercise actually justifies. Did your HRM report your average heart rate over that 1 hr.
Also, HRM's are calibrated for cardio activity. They will not produce accurate results for strength training, which is ANaerobic rather than aerobic activity.
