- HEALTH TRACKER
Hello everyone :) I usually hang out on the vsg forum, but I came here in hopes of getting answers to a question that I have about target heart rates.
Why is it that my heart rate monitor is telling me that I need to be in a lower heart rate range to burn fat than to improve fitness? Isn't that why we're burning the fat.... to improve fitness?
And more importantly, should I be following the guidelines that the hrm came up with for burning fat? I don't feel like I'd make very much progress towards burning calories and losing weight if I do little enough to keep my heart rate in that lower range.
And I am terrible with science, so if someone could explain this to me in the simplest terms possible, I would be ever so grateful.
