700 Series Operation & Comfort Tips
General 700 Series Tips
Cadence: There is a strong relationship between cadence (revolutions <RPM>/steps <SPM>) and the efficiency of your workouts.
Research indicates that you will be more comfortable and get a lot
more work done if you maintain a cadence of at least 60 RPM or
SPM. The 700 series console will give you a continuous readout of
your cadence.
700U/R
Proper adjustment of seat position and knowledge of pedaling cadence will allow effective use of your leg muscles without producing
undue muscular fatigue. Applying these proper techniques will allow you to ride comfortably and efficiently. These biomechanically
designed stationary cycles are fully adjustable to optimize comfort.
1. Leg Extension: The seat should be positioned such that the leg
is almost fully extended when the ball of the foot is on the pedal
and the pedal is in the position furthest from the body. This will
allow for greater use of more leg muscles, thereby maximizing
cardiovascular benefit while minimizing fatigue.
2. Foot Position: The ball of the foot should be on the pedal, directly over the pedal axle. This position allows you to maximize
the action of your calf muscles. Avoid pedaling with the arch of
your foot on the pedal. If toe clips and straps are attached to the
pedals, use them to stabilize your foot on the pedals but do not
use them if they place your foot in an unnatural position.
700 EL
The 700EL has the longest stride length (21 inches) in its class. This
ensures full leg muscle involvement and a very smooth motion. The
700EL also incorporates forward and reverse motion to work all major
leg muscle groups. These features along with the upper body component of the 700EL give you a total body workout.

Exercise Guidelines
Anyone over the age of 35, as well as younger persons whom are overweight, should check with his/her physician before beginning any type
of exercise program. People who have diabetes or high blood pressure, a family history of heart disease, high cholesterol or have lead a
sedentary lifestyle should protect themselves with a medical checkup and a stress test, preferably administered during exercise by a
healthcare professional.
In 1996, the office of the Surgeon General of the United Sates released a report on physical activity and health. This report definitively stated
that exercise and fitness are beneficial for a person’s health and redefined that exercise is a key component of disease prevention and
healthier living.
Medical research has shown us that there is an amount of exercise which is enough to condition the cardiorespiratory system and the
muscles of the body. This amount of exercise is between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart rate measured during a training session. This
range allows enough exercise to achieve fitness, but not an excessive amount to cause injury. Your heart rate is an excellent indicator of the
amount of stress placed on the cardiovascular system.
If exercise intensity is too low or too high, no gains will be made in fitness. If the intensity is too low, the stress levels are ineffective. If the
intensity is too high, injury or fatigue may set your exercise program back as you try to recover.
The best way to monitor exercise intensity is to accurately count your pulse during exercise. Your heart rate can easily be determined by
counting your pulse at the chest, wrist, or at the carotid artery on your neck. However, it can be difficult to count your own pulse while
exercising. The 700 series models are equipped with both a hand contact pulse sensor system and a built-in Polar compatible receiver for
pulse sensors that can be worn independently. These sensors automatically count your heart rate while you are exercising and display it as
a digital readout on the console. Your target heart rate, the intensity needed to improve cardiovascular fitness, depends primarily on your age
and not your state of fitness. It is calculated as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, which is estimated as 220 minus your age. It is
most effective to train at a target heart rate of between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart rate.
Maximum Heart Rate & Training Zone
Quantity & Quality
To calculate your maximum heart rate and find your training zone
use the following formula. An example has been provided below
based on a 35-year-old person
The American College of Sports Medicine makes the following
recommendations for the quantity and quality of training for developing and maintaining cardiorespiratory fitness in healthy
adults:
220 - Age = Maximum Heart Rate
(220 - 35 = 185)
12
•
60% of Maximum Heart Rate
(60% x 185 = 111 bpm)
•
85% of Maximum Heart Rate
(85% x 185 = 157 bpm)
•
•
•
Training Zone: 111 bpm - 157 bpm
An activity that uses large muscle groups, maintained continuously, and is rhythmical and aerobic in nature.
Duration: 20 to 60 minutes of continuous aerobic activity, including a warm-up and cool-down period for each exercise session.
Frequency: 3 to 5 times per week
Intensity: 60% to 85% of maximum heart rate
In addition to aerobic exercise, it is recommended that you add
strength training of moderate intensity twice a week to your program.
■ = 85%
● = 60%

Heart Rate Monitoring
The 700 Series units offer a number of options for monitoring your
heart rate while you exercise. In addition to hand pulse grips, the
700 Series units also have a built in receiver that can read the signal
from Polar compatible heart rate monitors. To make this function
even easier for you to utilize, a chest strap that will monitor your
heart rate and transmit it to the console is included with each unit.
Pulse Hand Grips (Standard)
Each 700 Series unit comes standard with stainless steel pulse hand
grips. To activate, gently grasp both hand grips to obtain a heart
rate reading. For best results when using the hand grips we recommend the following suggestions:
• Make sure that the palms of the hands are touching the contact
area of each hand pulse grip.
• Maintain an even pressure on the grips.
• Do not hold the hand pulse grips too tightly.
(Note: If you choose to wear a chest strap for monitoring purposes,
please note the console will take the measurement of the chest strap,
as it is more accurate.)
Chest Strap (Standard)
The 700 Series console includes a built-in receiver which will work
with most manufacturers’ chest straps. To get an accurate reading
using these devices, you will need to be within three feet of the
console, and a minimum of four feet from others using a heart rate
monitoring device.
There are three parts to the Heart Rate System on the Diamondback
700 Series equipment:
1. Sensor / Transmitter
2. Chest Band / Strap
3. The Receiver
The sensor component needs to be in contact with a smooth, steady
section of the user’s skin. The chest band or strap is necessary to
keep the sensor contact in place during exercise. The receiver of
the wireless ECG system is built into the console unit of the Diamondback 700 Series equipment. Scroll through to the PULSE display option to have your heart rate shown in the display window.
How to Wear Your Sensor/ Transmitter
1.
2.
3.
4.
Buckle one end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
Adjust the band length so that the fit is snug, but not too tight.
Buckle the other end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
Center the transmitter on your chest below the pectoral muscle
(breasts).
5. Pull unit away from chest by stretching the belt and moisten the
conductive electrode strips located next to the buckles. If you
wish to wear the band over a shirt, moisten the shirt under the
area of the electrode strip.
Note: The transmitter is on automatically when being worn. It is off
when it is not connected to your body. However, as moisture may
activate the transmitter, thoroughly dry the transmitter to prolong
battery life.
(Note: The transmitter may fluctuate erratically if you are too close
to other heart rate monitoring equipment.)

Maintenance
C A U T I O N - FOR SAFE OPERATION
Always inspect hardware prior to any exercise session. Look for loose hardware, loose pedals, loose cranks, and frayed wires. Repair or
replace any damaged or worn parts, tighten all loose hardware.
As part of Diamondback’s normal installation and set-up process, all pedals/cranks must be tightened after 8 to 10 hours of initial riding
to ensure parts are properly seated. This is standard initial “break in” service which must be performed after the first 8 to 10 hours of use.
Untightened pedals/cranks may become loose, causing damage which may void warranty.
After training, always wipe down your 700 series unit. Perspiration that continuously settles on frame, pads or casing may eventually
cause rust or damage to the unit. Damage resulting from lack of proper maintenance will not be covered under warranty. To clean pads,
use a mild soap and warm water. Dry with clean towel.
If noises develop or malfunctions occur, contact your authorized Diamondback fitness dealer.
