    What Should Your Heart Rate Be While Exercising?

    Last updated 2 days 15 hours ago

    Your cardiovascular health is essential to leading a full, active life. By monitoring your heart rate while at rest and during exercise, you can begin to finely tune your workouts so that you are getting the most out of them. For adults, a normal resting heart rate can be between 60 and 100 beats per minute. Generally speaking, people with a higher fitness level will have a lower resting heart rate. To make sure you are exercising at your optimal heart rate, take 220 and subtract your age from that. The high end of your target heart rate is 85% of that number, while the low end is 70% of that number. Once you have established your target heart range, you can use an electronic heart rate monitor to check your heart rate continuously during exercise. You can then vary the intensity to drive the number up or bring it back down.

    Efinger Sporting Goods is proud to carry personal heart rate monitors and accessories so you can achieve your personal fitness goals. Call us at (888) 760-1151 to find out how we can help you get into great shape and take your training to the next level!

    What You Need to Know about Boy Scout Uniforms and Supplies

    Last updated 5 days ago

    The Boy Scouts of America has been teaching young men about character, citizenship, and personal fitness for many years. If your child is interested in becoming a Boy Scout, you can find a local pack just by looking online. Boy Scouts must be at least 10 years old or have finished the fifth grade. To make sure your child is ready to be a Boy Scout, you’ll need a uniform and certain supplies. Here is a brief overview of what you need to know about Boy Scout uniforms and supplies.

    Uniforms and Handbooks

    The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts take part in a variety of activities in the community and in the wilderness. From service projects to the annual blue and gold banquet, Scouts learn how to be model citizens as well as moral and trustworthy. Your Scout will need at least one uniform and a handbook, which changes every year. The cap and neckerchief also change every year, but the rest of the uniform stays the same for the first three years of Scouting. Some dens and packs may provide additional equipment for outings, but others may require Scouts to provide their own.

    Supplies and Equipment

    An essential part of Scouting is learning to live in the outdoors, a goal that is achieved by going on field trips, camping excursions, and other outings. Your Scout will need a sturdy pair of shoes or hiking boots to take him on treks and trails, and it’s a good idea to invest in a backpack that’s made specifically for camping. This will keep him more comfortable, which is essential in making sure he has a good time. Depending on the den or pack your Scout belongs to, you may also want to purchase a sleeping bag, a sleeping pad, and any other camping equipment that’s not provided for him. When your Scout has his own equipment, he may feel more invested in sticking with the program.

    Get your Cub Scout or Boy Scout outfitted with all the gear he needs at Efinger Sporting Goods in Bound Brook. We have youth-specific camping equipment, apparel, footwear, and more for the young explorer in your family.

    Exercise can improve your heart health by making your heart muscles stronger. It will also increase the level of good cholesterol in your body while decreasing the amount of bad cholesterol. Your lungs get a workout along with your heart, and of course exercise helps burn calories which is an important part of weight management. Exercise has mental benefits as well, and can reduce stress and even battle some of the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
