Treadmill and elliptical question

Are the calorie burners on the treadmill and elliptical accurate if I enter your age and weight correctly?

Absolutely not! They completely overestimate calories burned.

The best way to gauge your calories burned is to invest in a heart rate monitor (HRM) that will calculate with reasonable accurateness the number of calories you burn based on your height, weight and age. (Though I do have some argument with the formula used to calculate your max HR based on these numbers.) Important to mention - from what I understand most HRMs are calibrated for running.

Also check out www.caloriesperhour.com.

Thank you very much. I have a polar and haven't used it in in years. Great reminder.

Go to www.heartzones.com for lots of qualified info and research on heart zone training. It's a winner.

a VERY rough estimate

This won't work for the elliptical, but I use it for the treadmill:
My former track coach said that for the avg person, you'd burn about 100 calories per mile, if you run that mile in 7 minutes or walk it in 20, it's still about of energy needed to travel that distance.
Now if you're under 120 or over 200 lbs this very rough estimate won't work as well.

They are good for relative intensity between days

Some days you will work harder than others. If you ser a calorie range as your goal for intensity during a 45min workout, you'get more bang for your buck during your workouts.

heart rate

the best way to guage your heartrate is the karvonen method mwhich takes into consideration your resting heartrate, your target zones will be more accurate.
