USB Charging
If a USB Device is attached to the USB Port, the Port will attempt to charge the Device. The power supplied from the USB Port may not be enough to
operate the Device and charge it at the same time.
Remote Heart Rate Monitor
Monitoring your Heart Rate is one of the best procedures to control the intensity of your exercise. The Console reads the telemetry HR signals from
the Heart Rate Chest Strap Transmitter that operates in the 4.5kHz - 5.5kHz range.
37
Owner’s Manual
Note: T
he heart rate chest strap must be an uncoded heart rate strap from Polar Electro or an uncoded POLAR® compatible model. (Coded
POLAR® heart rate straps such as POLAR® OwnCode® chest straps will not work with this equipment.)
If you have a pacemaker or other implanted electronic device, consult your doctor before using a wireless chest strap or other
telemetric heart rate monitor.
Heart Rate Calculations
Your maximum heart rate usually decreases from 220 Beats Per Minute (BPM) in childhood to approximately 160 BPM by age 60. This fall in heart
rate is usually linear, decreasing by approximately one BPM for each year. There is no indication that training influences the decrease in maximum
heart rate. Individuals of the same age could have different maximum heart rates. It is more accurate to find this value by getting a stress test than by
using an age related formula.
Your at rest heart rate is influenced by endurance training. The typical adult has an at rest heart rate of approximately 72 BPM, where as highly
trained runners may have readings of 40 BPM or lower.
The Heart Rate table is an estimate of what Heart Rate Zone (HRZ) is effective to burn fat and improve your cardiovascular system. Physical conditions vary, therefore your individual HRZ could be several beats higher or lower than what is shown.
The most efficient procedure to burn fat during exercise is to start at a slow pace and gradually increase your intensity until your heart rate reaches
between 60 – 85% of your maximum heart rate. Continue at that pace, keeping your heart rate in that target zone for over 20 minutes. The longer
you maintain your target heart rate, the more fat your body will burn.

Operations
How Often Should You Exercise
Consult a physician before you start an exercise program. Stop exercising if you feel pain or tightness in your chest, become short
of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the machine again. Use the values calculated or measured by the
machine’s computer for reference purposes only. The heart rate displayed on the console is an approximation and should be used
for reference only.
It is highly recommended to warm up before any workout with the Bowflex HVT™ machine.
• 3 times a week for about 20 minutes each day.
• Schedule workouts in advance and try to follow the schedule.
Note: If you are new to exercise (or returning to a regular exercise program), and you are unable to comfortably complete 20 minutes of continuous exercise at one time, select a few workouts and do them for 5 – 10 minutes. Gradually increase your workout time until you can
comfortably complete the total time for one of the Workout Programs.
Apparel
It is important to wear appropriate, safe and comfortable footwear and clothing when using the Bowflex® HVT™ machine, including:
• Rubber-soled athletic walking or running shoes.
• Exercise clothing that allows you to move freely, and keep comfortably cool.
• Athletic support that provides stability and comfort.
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. This machine contains moving parts. Do not put fingers, feet, or other objects into moving
parts of the exercise equipment.
Always wear rubber soled athletic shoes when you use this machine. Do not use the machine with bare feet or only wearing socks.
Intensity of Workout
To increase the intensity of your workout:
• Add another Round to the workout by pushing the Add Time button.
• Increase the resistance level while keeping the number of repetitions constant.
Note: If Save Resistance is active, the Console will automatically adjust the resistance to the ending resistance level the last time that exercise
was done.
• Push yourself to increase the number of repetitions during the Work segment of each exercise.
An Interval Training workout involves adjusting your workout intensity for specific lengths of time to raise and lower your breathing rate, heart rate
and calorie burn. This form of workout allows you to burn more calories than a standard workout in a shorter period of time.
The Bowflex® HVT™ machine combines “Work” and “Rest” segments to create an Interval workout. During a “Work” segment, push yourself to a
level of high calorie burn and maximum repetitions. Then during the “Rest” segment, allow yourself to relax and prepare for the next “Work” segment.
These extreme changes in intensity, along with pushing your body, is where the maximum benefits are gained from Interval Training workouts.
Interval Training workouts provide variety, maximize calorie burn and improve fitness.

he resistance settings supplied by the resistance fan can vary based on environmental and usage patterns and other factors. Supplied
T
resistance may degrade over time and after extensive usage. If you have any questions regarding the resistance of your fitness machine,
contact our Customer Service department for assistance.
Total Power score
The Total Power score is a unit-less point system that that dynamically represents a User’s performance on the Bowflex® HVT™ machine. The Total
Power score is made up of:
• SPEED – The speed at which you pull the cable.
• RESISTANCE – The amount of resistance applied to each exercise.
• RANGE OF MOTION – A combination of your body weight, body movement, and how far you pull the cable.
During a workout, a Total Power score is provided for each exercise. At the end of the workout, a Total Power score for the entire workout is also
displayed. The Total Power score may not change significantly for a User that performs an entire workout at the same level of intensity. However,
if that same User were to increase resistance and/or speed for a given exercise, their score for that exercise as well as their overall score would
increase. Since the score is based on speed, resistance, and range of motion, even a small score increase shows a significant shift in the User’s
fitness level.
By tracking these three factors the Bowflex® HVT™ machine can provide instant and motivating feedback for Users as well as the ability to track your
improvement over time. As you increase your work rate and intensity, your Total Power score will also increase.
Note: F
or a more accurate score, be sure to enter your weight value for the user profile. A Total Power score should only be compared to
your previous scores and not to other User Profiles.
