Target Heart Rate and Exercise Machines
I recently started going for the Elliptical at my school's gym because I feel like it gives me a harder workout than the treadmill. Are the heart rate monitors on those things accurate? Mine told me last night that I had gotten up to 180 a couple times during my workout, and I'm really not sure if that's healthy or not. I'm a 22 year old female, 5'4 and weigh about 229lbs, if that's relevant info for that.
5lbs ~5 times? Let's do it! One for every 5lbs lost until I get to where I wanna be.
Starting weight: 206
Current weight: 197.6
Goal weight: Somewhere between 155-165lbs
