WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Good health is an exercise in common sense
The Surgeon General released a new study in 2001, The Surgeon General’s Call To Action To Prevent and Decrease
Overweight and Obesity. It indicates that 61% of American adults are either overweight or obese. The story states that
overweight increases the risk of health problems, such as heart disease, certain type of cancer, type 2 diabetes, etc. It further
points out that overweight needs to be regarded primarily as a Health rather than as an Appearance issue.
The Surgeon General’s Healthy weight advice for consumers is:
1. Aim for a healthy weight: Find your Body Mass Index (BMI) on the chart below.
2. Be active: Keep physically active to balance the calories you consume.
3. Eat well: Select sensible portion sizes.
BMI = (weight (lb) $ height² (in)) x 703

Note: This chart is for adults (aged 20 years and olders).
Heart rate is an important key to your exercise.
The Surgeon General also 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 cardio respiratory
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. Taking
full advantage of this information, the 850Er is designed to include heart rate monitoring features.
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. It is difficult to count your own
pulse during exercise, mainly because you cannot count fast enough to get an accurate number. The 850Er is equipped with
a wireless telemetry receiving system. What it does is automatically count your heart rate while you are wearing a heart rate
chest belt during your exercising period. Heart rate is monitored and electronically displayed as a digital readout. Your
6/22/2005

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, estimated as 220 minus your age. It is most effective to
train at your target heart rate between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart rate.
Maximum Heart Rate & Training Zone
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:
220 – Age = Maximum Heart Rate
60% of Maximum Heart Rate
85% of Maximum Heart Rate
Training Zone:
(220 – 35 = 185)
(60% x 185 = 111bpm)
(85% x 185 = 157bpm)
111bpm – 157bpm

Ages in Years

Quantity & Quality
It is recommended that you accumulate at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. Physical activity
should be initiated slowly and the intensity should be increased gradually. You should select activities that you enjoy and can
fit into your daily life. Having Diamondback equipment at home certainly gives you the comfortable and convenient workout
you want.
The American College of Sports Medicine makes the following recommendations for the quantity and quality of training for
developing and maintaining cardio respiratory fitness in healthy adults:
•
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 per
week to your program.

Get a smart start on exercising.
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 check-up and a stress test,
preferably administered during exercise by a healthcare professional.
1.
2.
3.
Always stretch before your workout to loosen muscles, and afterwards to cool down.
The first few minutes of your workout should be devoted to warming up muscles before a vigorous workout, and
building your heart rate slowly.
After your aerobic workout of about 24-32 minutes, spend 10 minutes gradually reducing your heart rate with a
lower resistance level.
Remember, to start slow, with intensity low, until you build endurance and strength. And always consult your physician
before beginning any exercise program.

HEART RATE MONITORING DEVICES
Pulse Hand Grips (Standard)
The 850Er unit is heart rate controlled and comes standard with stainless steel pulse handgrips. To activate, gently grasp
both handgrips to obtain a heart rate reading.
(Note: It is recommended to wear a chest strap for Heart Rate control program, as it is more accurate. If you wear a chest
strap and use hand grips at the same time for heart rate monitoring purpose, please note the console will take the
measurement of the chest strap.)
Operating Tips:
If you are not getting a consistent reading while using the hand pulse option, 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.
Chest Strap (Standard)
The 850Er is equipped a built-in receiver and a chest strap for your heart rate monitoring. 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.
(Note: The transmitter may fluctuate erratically if you are too close to other heart rate monitoring equipment or there is other
electronics near by, such as TV, Radio...)
The receiver of the wireless ECG system is built into the console unit of the Diamondback 850Er equipment. While using
heart rate control modes, the computer monitors the exact measurement of and control over the activity if the heart. Heart
rate frequency is displayed while the computer continually compares heart rate to the preprogrammed personal data. The
computer adjusts the wattage to maintain heart rate at the preprogrammed level.
How to Wear Your Sensor/ Transmitter
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
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).
Stretch the transmitter away from your chest and moisten the conductive electrode strips located next to the buckles
with water.
(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.)
Erratic Heart Rate Readings:
Erratic readings on the receiver can be caused by electromagnetic disturbances. If the heart rate readings appear to be
abnormal, check that your 850Er product is not within range of other strong electromagnetic signals. Common sources are
televisions, computers, cars, cell phones, TV antennas and high voltage power lines (both above and below ground). Please
note: Static electricity in clothing or a flapping shirt can cause electrical interference, so some items of clothing, i.e. manmade fibers, can also be the cause. Please try wetting the t-shirt in the area where the transmitter is.
If the battery of the transmitter is running low, the transmission range decreases and may cause errors similar to the ones
listed above in this document.
Battery Replacement:
To replace the transmitter battery, remove the four small screws security the cover plate in the back of the transmitter.
Remove the cover plate, and the thin plastic shield covering the battery, Pry out the battery and replace with a new CR 2032
battery (available at photo or watch departments). Make sure the battery snaps into place and the numbers are facing up.
Replace the plastic shield and cover plate with four screws.
