For those of you that have HRM's, are you getting results anywhere near the tables found here and there on the net?
I've been looking at a few and most claim that I shoul burn off 850-1000 kcal/hour at 26-30 km/h and I find this a bit much, as do my more active friends(runners, professional officers). I'm a borderline clyde riding a steel touring bike for training at the moment.
I know even HRM's aren't all that exact as your fat/muscle balance and other factors play in but is there anything to these tables? I'm trying to count calories consumed and burnt off to lose a bit more than I've been doing over the summer.
