  1. Target Heart Rate and Interactive HR Programming

    My husband and I LOVE THE Precor EFX 546i elliptical and was wondering if it has interactive heart rate programs? I use the heart rate hand-grips on it all the time but I still have not figured out how to use the polar wireless chest strap in order to control the resistance level based off my target heart rate zone. For example, on many cardiovascular machines such as elliptical units and treadmills, there are interactive programs that allow the user to vary the resistance according to their pulse. For instance, lets say Joe Smith sets his target heart rate to 130. When he is exercising on his elliptical, the resistance will increase or decrease based on what John's heart rate is at that moment. So, if John set his target heart rate to 130 beats per minute and he was at 160 bpm, then the resistance of the elliptical would decrease so John would not be working out as hard, in turn, lowering his pulse. On the other hand, if John starts taking it easy, and his pulse falls to a calm 80 bpm

  2. Exercise Brag Post

    Just wanted to let everybody know that I am now running up to 45 minutes a day on my Life Fitness 95ti treadmill. As part of my plan to lose 22 pounds, I purchased an elliptical and treadmill for cardio, along with a home gym for my strength workout. When I run on my treadmill, I use the interactive heart rate programming, in order to burn the maximum amount of calories possible. Getting the most out of each and every workout is a must for those of you trying to lose a bunch of weight. Just doing a light jog and some sit-ups is not going to cut the layers of fat off like running on a tredmill or an elliptical for at least 45 minutes a day.
