Football Fitness Watches
Football, as American as apple pie, and a sport requiring incredible physical training to get big enough, strong enough and fast enough. Football
players come in all shapes, sizes and with differing skill sets but there is one defining truth. That truth is that if you are not strong enough
and fast enough you'll see the sidelines more than the field. A heart monitor can be a game changer, especially for strength training and football
Strength training with weights requires guidance. Start your next set too soon and you risk not gaining as much benefit as if your recovery was
properly timed by a recovered heart rate. Wait too long and you lose benefit as well. A heart monitor like the Polar FT80 or the
Polar FT60 were designed specifically for this type of strength training. See visual indicators of your recovery that tell you precisely to
the second when to begin your next set. The Polar FT80 and the Polar FT60 are the top picks for weight training.
During intense pre-season training many pro teams and college teams alike are starting to see the benefits of using central monitoring stations.
Obviously players can't wear a watch in a sport with such hard physical contact, but all players need to wear is a chest strap and coaches can monitor
a players heart rate and recovery right from the sidelines. This can be very valuable for an offensive or defensive line coach trying to keep tabs
on his guys in the trenches that have been working hard down after down.
Team solutions for centralized monitoring like those created by Polar and Suunto give coaches the ability to have much greater player management
solutions because you can see when certain players are getting tired based upon heart rate and the inability to recover. The Polar Team Base station
and the Polar Team transmitters are the ideal solution to help with player management and monitoring.
For players, the use of a heart monitor for off season strength training and physical workouts is a great way to achieve guided training.
You can even share your data with your coaches by transferring the data to software programs like Polar personal trainer or Suunto training manager
to receive suggestions and feedback during the pre-season build up.
The Suunto M4 and Suunto M5 measure you heart rate data for your entire training session plus calories burned and other information
that you can use to help guide future training sessions and to give you daily statistics for comparison. The Suunto Quest and the Suunto M5
allow you to wirelessly transfer your data using a Suunto Movestick right to your PC.
