Do you use a heart rate monitor during your workouts and do you trust the calories burned info it provides? I have a Polar RS300x, about which I have read good reviews as far as accuracy. I typically do 1.5 hour workout comprised of weight training and 10-15 minutes on a rope climbing simulator for my cardio. As my name suggests I'm a paraplegic so leg work is not part of my routine.
Four weeks ago I was getting readings in the mid 1200's.Today was my first workout day in two weeks and it says 1640 for today. These readings have always seemed high to me but I'm looking for opinions. I should note that I leave the monitor running for an hour after my workout. I do this not as a cheat but to monitor the post workout benefits.
