Heart Rate Monitor

 

Do heart rate monitors really help you train better??  Ive never been an endurance athlete, so i have no experience using these.  Any tips or advice is welcome.

 

 

Thanks!

    Dear friend !

    If you take your training seriously, a heart rate monitor is a must. In the first place it makes sure that you won't overdo it. And it gives you such a lot of additional information (depending on the model). Depending on the distances that you train for, it makes you run as slow as necessary or as fast as you can. I definitely recommend it. I have a Polar SX 625 and generally it does it's job.

    Keep up training

    Agree, a HR monitor will tell you everything you need to know in order to reach your goal, fitness or competition.

     

     

    So you dont do much and recover faster.

     

     

    I hope it helps...
