1 1/2 hours of tennis (indoor) - burned 537 calories according to my HRM. Yesterday, I did Body Pump and, I can promise you it was really hard work, but my HRM said I only burned 206 calories...seems like it was worth more of that (1 hour class with weight lifting hitting all body parts - very tough and I've been doing it for a year and a half). I'm thinking that maybe because it isn't cardio, it doesn't register on my HRM??

Yep Barb, it's because it isn't an aerobic/cardio type of workout. It is really GOOD for you but it isn't burning a lot of calories. The good news is that you are building muscle and therefore are burning more calories AT REST. So it DOES pay off in the long run in terms of calorie burning!

Thanks, Lynn. That was my understanding - I do know it helps me in the long run (in many ways). I was a little disappointed in the number of cals burned but I can live with that!
