Weight training vs. Cardio

The proof is in the numbers people. You have to incorporate weight training to build lean muscle and burn more fat. I burned fat for 50 minutes weight training for and 1hr and 15 minutes as opposed to last time I only burned fat for 17 minutes out of my hour and 30 minutes work out and that time I mostly did cardio. Goes to show you 50 minutes vs. 17 minutes of fat burned? Who wins? I would say weight training. It’s not about losing the fat with cardio then toning up with weights later, it’s about incorporating both people! Get it done!

Polar FT7

Hey fitfam! I was shopping around for a heart rate monitor and in the beginning I wanted to get the Nike fuel band but I read reviews and horror stories and for the price it was so sold it was not worth it. I had heard about Polar heart rate monitors and read reviews. I heard nothing but good things so I decided to purchase it and I love it. I got it from heartratemonitorusa.com and it cost me 79 bucks with free shipping. It took about 5 days to get.

I tried it out today and I love it! It is very easy to use and easy to set up. I chose this one because it tells you how long you actually burned fat as opposed to just fitness. There’s a less expensive version of this one but I wanted that extra feature because I work out a lot.

All you have to do is put in your weight, height and put on the strap and you are ready to go. I decided to get the men’s color because for women they only had pink and gold. I believe I got the medium strap and it fits just fine plus it’s adjustable.

If you are looking for a great inexpensive right to the point heart rate monitor look no further.
