Polar Workout Buddies - Heart Rate, Time and Distance

Workout Buddies from Polar!
If you really want to step up your game, you need to make sure you're really in the zone. That is getting your heart rate up enough to burn fat. It's really important to chart your progress and continue challenging yourself. As an example, I keep a journal for my NordicTrack UltraLift sessions. I enter the day, weight lifted and number of reps. This keeps me on track so that I can adjust the weights/reps to get the best workout possible. It also helps to avoid the guesswork because certain lifts have to be done on a lower weight setting. So keeping tabs on your sessions helps to avoid injury and progress as your body adjusts to the workload.

Polar Trainer and Heart Rate Monitor
Just taking a first look at the Polar unit, there's a lot to like. First of all there is no monthly subscription fee or program needed to sign up for to use the system. Some will give you a 30 day free access and then you have to pay thereafter. Skip those.
