Bodybuilding is an intense sport requiring a huge commitment to strength training, diet, and a time commitment. Using heart rate monitors that
provide you with feedback on zones, intensity, caloric burn and recovery can be a key part of your program.
Developing muscle mass requires a combination of strength training, dietary supplements, and the discipline to work on a commitment to size.
Getting cut ripped can require a combination of dietary restriction and higher repetitions in multiple sets on many different muscle groups in order
to develop that competition look. Posing practice is another discipline completely unto itself to develop the proper technique to win over the
Heart rate monitors like the Polar FT80 can provide bodybuilders with excellent feedback on strength training zones and recovery. A visual recovery
line on the face of these watches let you know precisely the moment to begin your next set to receive the most benefit. This can be enormously
beneficial over guessing when the right time is and can lead to more gains in strength and power.
High repetition weights to develop definition is more akin to endurance sports because you are lifting lighter weights for a much higher number of
repetitions. Developing heart rate zone parameters for your high repetition workouts, with lighter weights, helps keep you from going into your
anaerobic zones and insures you will get the greatest effect from your workouts.

dietary and workout logs that help take your training to a higher level.
