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 types 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

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 950Ef is designed to include heart rate monitoring features.
6
950 Ef Owner’s Manual
Workout guidelines (continued)
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
950Ef 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 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 for 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
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.
950 Ef Owner’s Manual
7
Workout guidelines (continued)
1. Always stretch before your workout to loosen muscles, and afterwards to cool down.
2. The first few minutes of your workout should be devoted to warming up muscles
before a vigorous workout, and building your heart rate slowly.
3. 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 950Ef 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 950Ef is equipped with 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 if there are other electronics near by, such as TV, Radio...)
The receiver of the wireless ECG system is built into the console unit of the Diamondback
950Ef equipment. While using heart rate control modes, the computer monitors the
exact measurement of and control over the activity of 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. Buckle one end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
2. Adjust the band length so that the fit is snug, but not too tight.
3. Buckle the other end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
4. Center the transmitter on your chest below the pectoral muscle (breasts).
5. 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.)
