I was already thrilled with my PolarA360 fitness tracker with it’s waterproof design, built-in heart rate monitor and color touch screen. Now Polar has introduced the Polar Balance, a stylish solution to weight management and both devices sync via Bluetooth Smart (iOS & Android) with the Polar Flow App.
The Polar Balance looks amazing, it’s easy to set up, sync and use. When you weigh yourself the Polar Flow App is updated making it easy to see your progress. The web service will even provide personalized activity goals & meal recommendations to help keep you on track.
I’ll be using the Polar Balance regularly over the next several weeks, with my PolarA360 and Polar Flow App, to help me reach my weight goals during their Shape Up Challenge. To get started, I’m sharing my morning meal and today’s WOD.
I’m starting today with yogurt, granola and honey.
Yogurt: 1/2 cup – 55 calories.
Granola: 1/8 cup – 50 calories
Honey: 1 tsp – 20 calories
I will usually wait about 30 minutes before starting to workout after eating a small meal like this, then enjoy a whey protein shake after my workout.
Today’s WOD is a series of 4 couplets using Tabata, a high intensity interval workout with 20 seconds of intense work followed by 10 seconds of rest. This cycle repeats for 8 rounds or a total of 4 minutes. With a few minutes of rest in-between each couplet, this workout should take about 40 minutes total. The equipment used should be available at any well equipped box or gym.
1st Tabata Couplet: Medball Slam coupled with Kettlebell Sumo Deadlift
(20 seconds of Medball Slam, 10 seconds rest,
20 seconds of Kettlebell Sumo Deadlift, 10 seconds rest)
Repeat 3 more times.
2nd: Hand Stand Hold & Steel Club Swing
3rd: Box Step-up & Shoulder Press
4th: Battle Rope Slam & Knees to Elbows
This should kick off my Polar Shape Up Challenge nicely. Now it’s time to get on my Polar Balance and see if I’ve lost any weight.
The Polar Balance is available for $99.95 however, if you use promo code “POLARFITBLOG” at check out, you’ll get an additional 20% off between now and 8/31/2016.
