Polar Smart Coaching Training Tip: HR Monitors Help Determine Exercise Efficiency
Exercise efficiency expresses energy expenditure converted into power (calories expenditure). In other words, efficiency represents the efficacy of skeletal muscles to transform the body’s stored biochemical energy into mechanical movement, while the remainder of the energy is lost as heat. The higher the efficiency, the more power one can produce with the same amount of energy and oxygen. This is vital for success in losing weight or long-distance events. Efficiency used to be able to be measured in laboratory conditions only. Now measurements in the field are easily conducted using Polar wearable products featuring the Ownindex (Fitness Test) function. In general, factors such as body size, gender, fitness level and skill affect individual differences in efficiency. Increases in energy system development measured in calories burned in 30 to 60 minutes show a robust energy level ready to take on the the challenges of everyday life and the big things you are up to. It makes more sense to compare your current calorie values to your earlier ones, and not the performance of others. Better yourself, compete with yourself, challenge yourself against others with races to gauge where you are in your goals.
