Hi guys!

If you wear your HRM while lifting. What is your HR in terms of traing zones (Friel 2, 60% of max etc.)? Maybe you notice it fluctuates drastically between rest and actual lifting times.

I'm just curious, I recently broke a wrist and am recovering so I can't push too hard. as a result I sweat very little, and average in my Friel 2 HR zone, I know it will elevate when I cane begin lifting heavy again (currently at 50% PREBREAK weight)

Thanks!

I did take it on Friday. It was about 130 after a set and 100 before a set. Thing is, that 130 feels low. I don't take my pulse, except when I am trying to figure how low I can get it. But generally I can compare it to running. Like a perceived effort thing. Actually I have taken it while running and have had my pulse in the 180 region. Now that is at the end of a 10k or the final mile repeat. Like I am spent.

So. Thing is. When I am lifting, and I lift heavy right. Well heavy for me. But I am stuck on this 5 X 5 thing. And I am pushing it. Thing is I can't give you an accurate number because my gym is closed and I am working out without barbells. I guess, on the 5th and maybe 4th set of every exercise I do (squat, bench press, shoulder press, bent over rows) I feel very similar to how I feel when my heart rate was 180 while running. Now I had been running for quite a long time, while I have been lifting for like 6 weeks. So I am sure that has something to do with it.

Once I get some barbells next week I will try again.

^^ Um, yeah. I've never heard of this, didn't know it's (or if) it's a thing.

What's the point, exactly?

You say you don't want to 'push it' since you're coming off a wrist injury, but to me that would be applicable to the actual exercises or movements you're doing, not HR.

You lift heavy things: your HR will go up.
You take a rest period: it goes down.
Repeat.

Knowledge is power I guess. I've only been training with my HRM and I I'd it fascinating how different exercises affect my heart rate. I'm a data junkie-I just like to know and understand my body in many different ways.

Yeah, I'm never going to use the HR as a metric while lifting, it was more a curiosity thing. I wear mine during my yoga, boxing, plyometrics, and other cross training and it's interesting to see how my heart rate is affected by them is all.

I suppose I'm on my own for this one

Yeah, so that's kind of what I was wondering. And your "knowledge is power" is a great statement, but if you're not doing anything with it, then I don't see the point.
Whatever floats your boat.

Edit: if some new training program, system, or theory comes out about lifting with HR training, you'll be ahead of the game!

What really got me thinking about is is that I used to spend ALOT of time boxing and working my heavy bags. I've goth some friends I run with and it's interesting that our HRs are comapable when running, biking or doing yoga together (things we each pursue actively) but when we box my HR is much lower (it used to be higher but I'm "conditioned to the specificity of boxing" I guess) when working a bag.

I was curious if the same "phenonemom" happened while lifting. Truthfully, yeah, i just like numbers haha

If you're fascinated by numbers and want to blow your mind take your blood pressure before during and after during an exercise. Blood pressure spikes are huge during heavy lifts.

Sorry, late to the game! (geek AND triathlete.. .so of course I have numbers!)

Squats (easy to see the peaks!) followed by overhead press, followed by deadlifts.

Edited to change "bench press" to "overhead press"

I wouldn't worry so much about HR during strength training. You're working the Anerobic threshold not the aerobic which results in a higher heart rate. If you're recovering from injury, use this time to focus on strength deficits. It can only help.

I'm a little late to the party here too, but...

HR is not a useful metric for strength training.  Changes in HR lag behind changes in effort.  Because strength training sets are short efforts, they are over before before HR can "catch up".

If you want to wear your HR monitor for curiosity, it can be interesting, but it won't provide particularly useful data.

I agree it is not a useful metric & don't intend to use it as one. Just more numbers and data to check out I suppose. I do find it interesting how my HR is different now vs months ago before I broke my wrist, I just can't "push it" and endurance sets don't seem to get my HR up as low reps would (as expected)...that's what stemmed the question
