I've touched on this particular subject just briefly in my blog "Why High Intensity Interval Training Is Good For Burning Body Fat" but today I'm going to cover specifically HOW you can use a heart rate monitor to scientifically boost your weight loss and toning fitness goals.
Rather than mindlessly exercising and eating less in the hopes of losing weight, as always there is a much more efficient way of going about it. One of the ways I give all of my face to face clients immediate feedback and progress from our personal training perth sessions is by having them wear a heart rate monitor.
This not only gives them some interesting insight into their own bodies but also provides some of the best motivation you can get for exercise.
Here is the setup I use with my weight loss personal training clients:
Pictured above: Scosche Rhythm heart rate monitor and Garmin Vivoactive.
With this equipment I'm able to detect a client's max heart rate (HR), average HR, resting HR and calories burned.
You might think this all sounds like a headache, so send me an enquiry at email@example.com if you need assistance.
Then once I have all of that data I can see which exercises are burning the most calories, which exercises are not whilst also keeping the weight loss client at a sustained intensity so that they get the most out of their session. So by being able to consistently see which exercises burn the most calories, I can personalize the client's personal training sessions and the weight loss training program that I write for them.
Now for a lot of my online personal training clients, I utilize the same data but I have them send me their results from the workouts I've constructed for them and with that I can review and speed up their results by honing in on the exercises that do the most for them.
Taking into account nutrition for weight loss and toning becomes a lot easier too. Having a grasp of how many calories are going out via exercise then gives you an idea of what needs to be going in.
Here is a simple explanation of that:
