Many people have heard of Heart Rate Monitors for exercising, and it’s fairly straight forward to understand what it does, but how important is it to use and what are the benefits?
In a nutshell, knowing your heart rate allows you to tailor your workout so that you can keep exercising at a steady, fat-burning pace without exhausting yourself or being too easy on yourself. Without this knowledge all your hard work and determination could mean you fall short of your fitness goals.
Heart rate monitors work similarly to EKGs in that they measure the electrical activity produced by the heart. The best monitors must make contact with your skin in order to work well and give highly accurate readings. This reading is then displayed allowing you to adjust your workout to remain in your optimal workout zone.
