All of the reviews make not that the alarm is more than just relatively loud.

Re: Wu Flu

Auto shops are slowing way down. We're a high end independent, so we haven't been totally laid off yet, but I hear dealerships are a ghost town. Economic impact from this is going to make 2008 look like the good old days. Overall my spending is way down. I haven't gone to the gas station in weeks. ...

Re: Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

Looked hard at this months ago and ended up resolved to spend some money. Happy with the socshe rhythm+, but I would turn to CL or eBay if you want an older chest strap model that is cost effective. The only current reason I would use it is because I'm starting up rowing again. My old concept 2 com...

Re: Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

I've got the H7 and the OH1. I use the H7 for HRV/RHR readings I use the OH1 for training now, since it's a lot less hassle than the H7. The OH1 is an optical on that goes around your forearm or upper arm (or other places)...it's more useful for me for rucking and cardio due to it's more forgiving ...

Re: Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

Yeah the bare bones FT1 is what I had and I was pretty shocked to see it for 85.

I guess if I want one I'll be looking at spending around 80-90 dollars.

I'll take a look at the H7 and H10.

Thank you gentlemen.

Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

Hello! I haven't had or shopped for a heart rate monitor for many years. Back in the day I would just buy the cheapest polar chest strap/watch combo available. Decided it was time to pick one up again and lo and behold, I don't think they make it anymore. (The simple strap/watch combo.) They seem to...

Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

As the name says, there are a total of ten movements (press, row, swing, squat, plank, a few hip flexor stretches and loaded carries). Most days alternate a strength move (press, swing, goblet squat, etc.) with a stretch. 2 days a week are strength focused (think DeLorme), 2 days a day are rest, th...

Usually this time of year i already started training outdoors, but now don't know if it good idea or not. Still training indoors :) If you are training outdoors away from people ( a yard, and empty field, etc.) then it is more than likely okay and possibly a very good idea. If you are touching anyt...

Re: N-95 Masks from Dragon Door

There is this idea people often have that a given person will only be so big a piece of shit. They think that there's only so far someone will go. This is a dangerous idea. If a person is beyond a given point, hard to quantify exactly but I think it's a real line, then there's nothing he won't do. ...

Re: Holding your breath: a measure of lung health?

However, the question still remains, is this a sign of lung capacity. I'm going to guess possibly not. Holding your breath, I think, is a learnable skill and there are things like dampening the panic reflex, remaining calm, etc. that impact it as much if not more than lung capacity. People who may h...
