3 Tough Workouts Involving Heart Rate Monitors

Track your progress, enhance your performance.


Opexfit design many simple yet detailed workouts where HRMs are used effectively and exact figures within a set time limit are prescribed. Wear a heart rate monitor for the entire duration of the workout and track your recovery times between the weightlifting work/rest and the 10 min emom. 

As your clients move closer to competitive phases of training, it becomes prudent to integrate progressions that challenge the athlete’s ability to perform more reps under fatigue. This is all predicated on quality work spent refining movement, and accumulating reps in non-fatigue settings before testing someone’s battery. OPEX HQ @CoachSamSmith breaks down these progressions in How to Integrate Strength Speed Work into Fitness Programs.

Be conscious of bringing your heart rate back down between sets as much as possible during the lifting, and in the emom, see if you can maintain a steady heart rate during the double unders.
