Ever use a heart rate monitor while you’re training? You should be. A heart rate monitor assists you in staying in the preferably aerobic zone. To get an optimum workout it is important to pace your exercise.

You want your heart rate at the proper intensity level for an extended period of time. If your heart rate gets too high your activity can become counter productive, if it is too low you are not getting any substantial health benefits.

So if you’re training for a race- these little watches can help you find your optimal speed and efficiency and help you reach your BP! wants to give away a TIMEX IRONMAN RACE TRAINING KIT (Valued at $200) to help you optimyz your training!
