So I have a heart rate monitor that does a calorie count, but when you input details it only asks your age and gender, not weight. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't weight have something to do with caloric burn?
I used it at work today. I am a stable hand and do 5 hours of toting 38 water buckets (full to the brim), cleaning stalls (I do 8, and the riding ring), lugging a wheel barrow of grain, and 50 lb bags of sawdust. I also walk back and forth about 20 times turning horses out to pasture and bringing horses in. I also sweep a lot, and do some dusting as needed.
According to my hrm I only burned 410 calories in that time, which is crazy. I burn 350 in an hour on the treadmill. Ugh, anyone know how to do the math on this?
