    Equipment Review: Everlast Personal Timer



    I've been doing bagwork interval training at home two nights a week, and I got sick of using the radio as my ring bell.

    I picked one of these up at Sports Authority for $9.99. The first one didn't work right, but the second one has done the trick.

    Not much to it, you set the rounds for 2 or 3 minutes, and the break for 30 or 60 seconds, then you choose how many rounds. A bell sounds, and the round starts, the bell sounds and it ends. As I said, not much too it.

    It is plastic with a large LCD screen, and it seems like Everlast sourced this out to a manufacturer of Beepers, circa 1996.

    I wish it buzzed and sputtered with 15 seconds left in a round, like my first one did, but it doesn't. I'll probably add a output jack from RadShack to output to a speaker, so I can use it without having to have it at a close proximity.

    I've used it for burpee drills and bag work, but I suppose it would be good for interval sprints too (I'm using CardioCoach for those right now, but I've not used it long enough for a review)

    Pros: Cheap, has a bell.

    Cons: Cheaply made, not as many settings as the ring timer at my school.

    I'm guessing that it is battery powered, but with what type of batteries? Also, is it loud enough to hear over music at a moderate volume?

    Holy crap, I need one of these! Thanks for the review. I've never seen one at sports authority before.

    Two AAA batteries (included). Moderate music, yeah, loud music, not really. It has a vibrate mode, as I said, kind of like a beeper on vibrate. It includes and armstrap, but like almost all armstraps for mp3 players or similar, it is too small for my upper arms. It does kinda fit around my forearms. It has a belt clip, and it managed to stay on my shorts for two minutes of burpees/hindu pushups.

    I've been looking for one of those puppies at Sports Authority, but they never had them in stock (or they are too lazy to make new orders).
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
