Heart Rate Monitor Hairy Chest
Question: I am a 56 year old male who enjoys spinning. I just bought a heart rate monitor to help control the intensity of the workouts. Problem...I am very hairy and can't get the proper contact. Do you have any suggestions aside from shaving my chest? Thanks. Len
Answer: Len, Try moistening the contacts on the transmitter with saliva to help pick up your heart's electric pulse. Also, try to place the strap a little lower on your chest where there is (hopefully) not as much hair. If all else fails...Mach 3!
