Keeping heart rate low during non cycling activities

Postby Herbsman » Sat Nov 03, 2012 12:47 pm

I need to keep my heart rate in the recovery zone so as not to impede recovery. Does anyone else wear a heart rate monitor during sex just to make sure?

I once had to make my OH wear one to prove she wasn't dead*.

*not actually true.

No but if I could just find a way of getting this PT working. Wonder how many watts are sustainable? And how much variance there is in Functional Thrusting Power

No, but it shouldn't be a problem to try it as I'm usually on my own.

Why on earth would I do that? :?

I'm currently designing a condom with strain gauges attached, along with a magnetic cadence monitor so I can work out my power output. That way I could stay within a certain range of a percentage of my FTP (fornication threshold power) and ensure that I don't 'blow up' halfway through the interval.

Would the resistance need to be at a constant level each time to ensure repeatability?
