Heart Rate Controlled Workouts

Benefits of Heart Rate Controlled Workouts

Heart rate controlled workouts are on the rise because people are seeing better results after every workout. If you’ve never heard of heart rate controlled workouts, think Orangetheory, fitbits, chest straps, or pulse sensors that help you monitor your heart rate during exercise.

In order to see the best results during these workouts, you will want to find your target heart rate. Then monitor your heart rate during exercise to ensure you hit that number. This will help you burn more calories and shed any extra pounds a little faster.

Heart rate controlled workouts are so effective because you can accurately track the intensity of every workout, know your recovery levels, and find out how to train more effectively in the future to meet your goal. Plus when you exercise at your target heart rate level, you also stimulate your metabolism and gain more energy through the “afterburn,” which is when you continue burning calories after you workout.

Top 3 Benefits of Heart Rate Controlled Workouts

There are many benefits to working out according to your heart rate. Below are the top three reasons that more and more people are making the choice to use a heart monitor during their exercise sessions.

Control Your Workout

Have you ever felt like you spent hours at the gym, but aren’t seeing any results? That could be because you’re either not working out hard enough, or overexerting yourself, which can be counterproductive.

A heart rate monitor will help you take control of your workout and keep track of how hard your body is working. Rather than running on the treadmill until you feel like you can’t breath or slowly walking at a pace that won’t increase your fitness levels, you’ll be able to maintain the right speed that gets your body the best results.

Get Better Feedback

Everybody and every body is different, meaning how your body reacts to physical activity could be completely different than the person next to you at the gym. If you can track how your body is reacting to exercise, you can easily figure out what works and what doesn’t.

Monitored workouts will supply you with plenty of feedback that will show exactly how your body responds to certain workouts. This will help you find the most effective workout routine and fine tune how you exercise.

See Actual Results

In life, you are constantly bombarded with weight loss ads boasting that you will, “see faster results,” “lose 50 lbs in 5 days,” etc., etc. That’s because people want to see rapid and visible results. However, to see the best results, you don’t have to spend your money on weight loss pills, body wraps, detox teas, or the “next best thing” (that probably won’t work).  

Instead, use your heart rate monitor as your very own personal trainer. Allow the monitor to tell you when you need to step up your game or cool things down to meet your bodies needs. Then when you’re in the right zone, you’ll be able to burn more fat and calories quickly. Also you can track your progress and actually see how your body changes overtime.
