90 minutes on Elliptical, HRM says 1175 cals burned
I bought a new Polar heart rate monitor that costed about $100 yesterday, and I used it for the first time tonight on the Elliptical. For 90 minutes on the elliptical, it told me that I burned 1175 calories. I assume a heart rate monitor would be accurate (and I am new to the elliptical), so does this sound correct???
I'm having the same issue with elliptical training.
According to my machine it claims that I burn roughly 300 cals in 60 minutes. But, when I log my activity into LiveStrong or do calculations using online calculators it clocks my workout at 700 or more calories per hour..
I agree having watched my HR and running and today had to use elliptical I would agree and my hats off to you my HR was 20 beats slower on elliptial than by running my running is wat yours is on elliptical! I am 60.
I am training for the rest of my life.When is my next 1/2 marathon? Maybe Monday,Wednesday,Saturday?? I don't need a race or another T shirt ... I Run for the "JOY OF RUNNING"
