    is there anything available like that for weightlifters/HIIT/resistance type people. I just think the logic that runs all the calculations is geared towards you actually running and not doing any of the other billions of kinds of excersices your body does.

    I think a heart rate is a heart rate, so that will work just fine. What's your program like if you're getting your heart rate up with weight lifting on a consistent and high enough level? Barbell complexes?

    by barbell complexes you mean the same as multi-joint/full body? then yes (i like your term better)

    But I also do, what I don't know if it qualifies as, HIIT to get my HR up to about 90 (I posted about this earlier - for the HGH release) before I start doing BB Complex with weights after I get my HR going. I just found out that your body targets fat for energy whenever you keep your workouts below the 60% MHR mark so i was thinking it'd be ideal to (on recovery days) excersize in that area because I need to cut a little for my calling card. Plus as much as I watch my macro-nutrients I'd like to see how my body handles burning calories and if a watch exists that can calculate how many carbs PERSONALLY I burn throughout the day - then I wanna be all over it

    are you still seriously trying to manipulate your bodies hgh levels with heart rate prior to exercise?

    dude, you're a fucking fruitcake.

    I agree, I'm an idiot because I found a routine that helps me acheive the ability to work out more intensely, more often than anything I had done previously.....

    what am I thinking??!?! geez thanks for the insight man:ugh:

    I have a polar hr watch. I've used it at the gym and with doing cardio. They are nice because you can see what % of your max hr you are working at and you can target certain hr %s for different purposes (burning fat/glucose for energy)

    No, barbell complexes are a type of cardio done with weights. Multi-joint/full body exercises = multi-joint/fullbody exercises :dunno: I just say "compound"

    I have one and it really seems to help. I do a lot of cardio as well as circuit training. This really helps keeping me from over training..

    I meant to put calories - sorry about the typo ccrooks

    thanks for the other finds. That F6 seems to be pretty good.

    Does anybody know why ceaze posts so many painfully sarcastic remarks??

    colorado cyclist has pretty good prices most of the time... excel sports boulder has some pretty decent HRMs too... but i just knew that CC had some cheap "beginner-type" watches, not strictly for bikers

    There are some HR watches with calorie counters. Search for them.
