I have been having the same problem. I weigh 108, 5 feet tall and 64 years old. 439 calories is what it tells me I do for Stability and Mobility 2 when using a heart rate monitor. The website tells me 217 calories, and the Polar FT4 monitor and watch receiver records around 86 calories burned (that's with me holding a pair of 3 pound weights, using a 15 pound kettlebell when possible and kicking and punching immediately - not waiting for Justin.) Their accuracy is obscenely INACCURATE.
Justin posted on Facebook yesterday....he is shooting more videos for us at Daily Burn. https://www.facebook.com/RUBI...
I just saw on Facebook that Justin is shooting more videos for Daily Burn!!!!! Hooray!!!!
I saw Justin's Facebook post - he is shooting more videos for us. Thanks Daily Burn for listening to your subscribers.
I was so discouraged when I did my first MOVE - African Dance. I was all flailing arms and fumbling feet. Justin explains how to do the movements, Keaira does not. I find the many moves in a combo to be hard to remember, but I am getting better. Africa is the only MOVE one I do, but it seems to have movements that complement the martial arts stability work. I still rely on the level 2 videos for True Beginner, but I kick and punch immediately (holding a pair of 3 pound dumbells) and for the "beachball" stuff, squats, and glute bridges I have a 15 pound soft kettlebell. I've really come a long way with Justin and want to see an intermediate level by him. He's awesome!
Did not help me. I've been getting the same high readings for nearly two months. Something is wrong and Daily Burn needs to fix it, or lose customers.
I've had consistent over-inflated calories burned readings for nearly two months.
Yes! Justin is a true leader. He explains how to do the movements correctly, and he offers insight and advice. He really empowers his followers.
No problems synching the DB monitor with iPhone 5s.
Actually, I'm not trying to lose weight, I'm trying to maintain roughly where I am, but build up muscle mass and improve cardio and stability/mobility. I lost 47 pounds last year, and am trying to keep it off, that's all. I lost the weight using a Fitbit Tracker, by logging in what I ate, and my activity. I still use a Fitbit One every day,
Daily Burn is allowing me to return their heart rate monitor for credit. Their last e-mail to me indicates that they are aware of the calorie estimation issue. Self magazine's website has a section called Calculators and Tools. You can enter your weight, choose the activity, and calculate the estimated calories. http://www.self.com/calculato...
I agree, that the overestimation of calories would be very discouraging to anyone trying to lose weight by monitoring diet and exercise.
This is why that in over 2 months on True Beginner I have lost only 1 pound.I am only 5 feet tall weighing 107 pounds, and am 64 years old. I just did Stability and Mobility 2 in the True Beginner series. The phone app said 449 calories, the website said 215 and my new Polar FT4 heart rate monitor said 86!!! (keeping most of the workout in the 105-115 bpm rate) The Polar monitor is in line with what external sites seem to indicate that I would be burning. I am punching and kicking immediately during the workout holding a pair of 3 pound weights, I do the "beachball" and the squats using a 15 pound kettlebell for added intensity. I have no idea of where they are getting their figures, but with all my intensity modifications, I am only burning around 40% of what the site tells me.
I have checked a few external sites, and there is no way that I could be burning as many calories as Daily Burn says that I am on the website. And the Daily Burn Heart Rate monitor indicates that I am burning roughly twice the estimates that the website gives. I am getting a Polar FT4 monitor for greater accuracy. I will be able to input age, gender, and weight on it, and I hope it works better than the site currently does.
I'm not large, but I am 64, with a lot of injuries in my past (and a lot of joint pain) and I started with True Beginner. It's a great program, and Justin offers modifications to help you get started. Kudos to your friend on the decision to get healthy. The people in Justin's videos are real people who have limitations with age, weight and injuries, not elite, super-fit athletes, so it's much less intimidating.
No difference! I even uninstalled and reinstalled the Daily Burn phone app and I am still getting 429 calories burned for True Beginner Stability and Mobility 2. Always the same figure. Something is very wrong, because at my age and weight (even with the extra intensity I add in to the workout) I would not be able to burn 429 calories in 25:54 minutes.
Update - clearing the cache and cookies on my computer, uninstalling and reinstalling the iPhone app, and removing and uninstalling the monitor battery has not changed anything.
