Is The #Armour39 Fitness & Heart Rate Monitor & Workout Tracking System Live Lean Approved?

The following post is sponsored by Fitfluential on behalf of Under Armour. But don’t worry, I always tell you how it is.  

Live Lean Nation,

On this episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing my “Stop Cheating Yourself” HIIT Cardio Workout inspired by the Under Armour, Armour39 Heart Rate Monitor.

It’s February 10th. We’re now 41 days deep into 2014. Yep that’s over 10% of the year behind us (11.23% for all your over analytical types out there).

So the question is, are you 11.23% closer to your fitness goals? For example, if your goal was to lose 30 lbs of fat this year, have you lost 3-4 lbs yet?

If yes, big Live Lean hi-5 to you. If not…

What’s up with that?

If you’re following the 7 Live Lean Laws to Nutrition, your nutrition game should be on point. So what’s up with your workouts? Many people often “think” their workouts are burning more calories than they actually do. Are you one of them? Maybe you’re not doing the right types of calorie blasting workouts, or worse, maybe you’re not even following a structured workout program (shaking my head’¦you know how I feel about this).

But lets say you are following a well designed workout program. Be honest, do you think you’re really giving it your all? There is only one way to take all subjectivity out of that question. It’s called measuring and tracking the effort given during your workouts. Like the saying goes…

The things that get measured, get managed!

How can you objectively measure the effort of your workouts?

Let me introduce you to the #Armour39 heart rate monitor and workout tracking system. 

#Armour39 HR Monitor Review

This #Armour39 heart rate monitor from Under Armour WILL keep your workouts honest. It will stop you from cheating yourself. Why? Because, the numbers don’t lie.

How do you use the Armour39?

Armour39It’s simple. Put the chest strap on ($99) and WORKOUT (by the way the strap is washable and doesn’t hold the sweat’¦win)!

Simply wet the chest strap, like you see in my video above, to increase the sensitivity, insert the Armour39 module (included with the chest strap), and then simply sync it with your iPhone app (compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPod Touch 5th gen) or the Armour39 wristwatch.

The watch is sold separately ($199) but if you have an iPhone, the Armour39 app is free (which in my opinion works awesome on it’s own).

The product comes with simple step-by-step instructions that even my dog Peyton could understand (he is a smart dog though).

What does the Armour39 do?

The Armour39 tracks your heart rate, the amount of calories burned, real time intensity during the workout, and a cool “WILLpower” feature where it gives you a score of 0-10 on how badass your workout was based on workout length, what you did, gender and weight, and key heart rate measures to give you a single score.  In other words, simply and honestly tells you how hard you’re actually training. No more guess work.

Like I Said: “’¦the numbers don’t lie.”

This is an example of my “numbers” from my 18 minute “Stop Cheating Yourself HIIT Cardio Workout” as shown in the episode of Live Lean TV above.

These screens are via my Armour39 app on my iPhone.

The first screen shows the following:

Average Heart Rate: 146 beats per minute, Peak Heart Rate: 171 beats per minute, Average Intensity: 61%, Calories burned in 18 minutes: 233, Duration: 18 minutes, & WILLpower: 3.03.

The second and third screen shows my heart rate fluctuations and intensity during the intervals:

Low intensity interval: averages 125 bpm (65% of my max heart rate)

High intensity interval: averages 165 bpm (88% of my max heart rate)

These are my HIIT Heart Rate zones.

To calculate your HIIT Heart Rate zones:

220 – Your Age = Max Heart Rate (MHR)

MHR * .85 = the beats per minute (bpm) you should be reaching during your high intensity interval

MHR * .65 = the bpm you should allow your heart rate to drop to before doing another high intensity interval

But don’t worry’¦if you don’t like math, the Armour 39 app and watch calculate this for you when you set up your profile.

Here’s the “Stop Cheating Yourself” HIIT cardio workout I did from one of my sprint workouts found in my Live Lean Sprint 18 week cardio program.

Overall…I give the Under Armour Armour39 2 Biceps Up…

By now you should know that I am a huge believer in measuring your progress. The Armour39 does just that. The chest strap is mandatory, but if you have an iPhone and want to save money, I recommend just syncing up the chest strap and Armour39 module with the app. Maybe I’m missing something, but I didn’t see any benefit to owning both the app and the watch (although I really like the style of the watch). I also really wished the watch had a stop watch function as well so you could track your rest periods, etc. Oh well’¦the chest strap, module, and app are ALL GOOD and Live Lean APPROVED!
