Looking for a New Heart Rate Monitor? Try BeetsBlu!

When it comes to HRMs, I've been a Polar girl. The watches are pretty cool, and most of them do more than just manage your heart rate. However, what is one thing that I think would make it better? Put the readings on my phone (I mean everything else is on our phones right now). So naturally, when BeetsBlu reached out to me to try out their HRM, I was intrigued by this fact more than anything else :)

Hate Burpees? Let's Modify Them

Are you one of those people who gives excuses about not doing high intensity interval training because, well, they are hard and you don't think you can jump around that much? Here's some good news: you can modify your workouts to reduce the intensity but still get some good points. An example of one of these monster exercises is the burpee. Ugh! Killer.

Regular burpee

If the motion is too much for you at this level and you'd like to work your way up to this full-body exercise, trying slowing it down and going step by step. You'll still get the same benefits, but at a lower intensity. 

Modified burpee

Try this today and let me know what you think.

Cheers Eights & Weights!
