Did you know that you can use your Apple Watch Stats to analyze your workout stats?
In fact, this is how I analyzed my in-person training clients during the pandemic.
And I am going to teach you the method today!
To analyze your results do as follows: (quick video will be attached here)
The things you want to analyze:
Here are common mistakes I see with my own clients:
What should your max heart rate be? 220 bpm - (your age) = Max heart rate.
What should your low heart rate be? 65-80% of your max.
For myself at 56 years young 😉 it is like this:
220 - 56 = 164 BPM
164 x 65% = 107 BPM
While working out you want to watch your heart rate. When it drops low enough, then you can start again on the intense interval and take your heart rate up to max.
Here are some examples of someone who worked very hard during their workout and did not rest. Notice no spikes going on, it just got consistently higher. (THESE ARE WRONG!!!)
Here are some examples of someone who got this right, has been training with me before Apple Watches were even a thing. This is perfect.
Why do we want those spikes? Well, here are some benefits:
Why wouldn't you want to do this?
The main reason I think is that most people (like the 22-minute guy) have not truly felt the benefits. They are missing out on so much good!
Be sure to tune in for my next video and blog post which will be all about the most common mistake I see people make in their cardio exercise.
NEXT WEEK Hint: I have alluded to it here! But it is so VERY COMMON! AND EVEN MOST TRAINERS MAKE THIS MISTAKE AND NEVER TALK ABOUT IT! 😯
