No worries. I used to use it when I was going to the gym because the exercycles have a built in monitor and it's easy to adjust your heart rate just by rising or dropping a resistance level. My resting rate is between 55 and 60 bpm so I didn't have too much leeway.

What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?

don't know, don't care.

that sure explains why the watch puts a percentage by the heart rate. (I was trying to figure out what kind of a percentage that must be).

If that's true though with my resting bpm at 58, my ice hockey at 111-115 I could still push myself a little more.

Thanks for the speedy reply!

I think the ideal heart rate is between 60% and 100% over your resting rate. So if your resting heart rate is 80 beats per minute you should be aiming to get your heart rate up to between 128 and 160. Any less and you push a little harder and any more and you ease off a little. You keep it up for as long as you exersise.

Do you have any strategies for using a heart rate monitor in your workouts? I've purchased a Mio heart rate monitor/watch thingy, and am looking for strategies to applying it to my exercise. What should an active heartbeat be, and for how long?

How should I be using this thing? (I should have answered that question before purchasing the thing...
