Doing Orangetheory for a few months and my splat points are in the 30's and 40's. Hoping I can bring these down to the recommended 12-20. I find myself pushing beyond my limit listening to the coach.

What’s splat

like

You are wasting time. Go lift heavy weights.

It took me a few months to bring my splats down, but even now it’s unpredictable. Some classes I’ll get 7, and others I’ll get 20 something. I think it depends on how much caffeine i have in my system lol. Just know your heart is getting healthier and that monitor can be a little wack. I love OT! Keep on at it!

like

Yes, thanks for that too. The scale is going up and I'm told I'm gaining muscle. Yet I thought I'd see some weight loss since muscle burns fat. Telling myself I need to be patient as I have been away from working out hard for so long.

like

OP- It's not just about weight. Check measurements too. You can stay the same weight but lose inches around your stomach, hips, etc.

like

You’ll feel and see results! Since you haven’t worked out in so long, you prob started with like no muscle mass, so will put on muscle easily as you’re losing fat. Don’t let the scale discourage you! It’s a great workout

like

And pwc 1, you get splat points when you’re in the “orange zone”, aka, for every minute your maximum heart rate is 84% or greater, you get a splat point. Earning 12-20 splat points means you spent 12-20 mins at 84% of your maximum heart rate which supposedly spikes your metabolism and calorie burn for the next 24-36 hours post workout

like

Maintaining 1 lb of muscles burns about 5 calories, so gaining 5 lbs of muscle (which takes a significant amount of time), means you will burn about 25 extra calories per day...not much. Maintaining 1lb of fat burns about 2 calories. At the end of the day weight loss is about 80% diet and 20% exercise.

Thanks for that PwC4. I do find myself trying to remember form over speed because the atmosphere can be chaotic and rushed and easy to get caught up in going faster and losing technique. I watched my breath today too and kept a more even pace and got 27 points today.

like

Thanks AS1. I haven't worked out other than yoga for 10 years. Need to lose 15 pounds so hoping if I keep up I'll start seeing results.

Are splat points good or bad?

Did you take measurements? That’s usually a better indicator than the desk on whether or not you are getting smaller.

Yes, took them for 21 day fix. And measured today. My upper arms are def stronger and larger. But either same on others and bigger on waist. Need to watch my diet closer.

Omg take it easy. You will injure yourself ! Trust me.

@PwC4, how did you hurt yourself? I found out as long as I am not out of breathe in the red zone, I'm good and not to worry.

Anytime you are putting that much stress on your body , your form breaks down. Just be careful!

You don't know what you got until it is gone (knees)❤
