About this Dataroom
Does Drumming qualify as a sport? Are drummers more fit than other musicians? Recently I recorded my heart rate while playing a number rock songs. I used a Garmin heart monitor with a Digi-Fit transceiver input to my IPhone. I also recorded the maximum decibel (dB) reading during each performance with a Wohler loudness monitor.
The Method was as follow:
1 - Establish normal resting heart rate 2 - Play song for 300 seconds on full tilt. This means play as loudly as I can while still executing the song properly. 3 - Note maximum loudness in dB using a sound meter 4 - Apologize to neighbours and wife 5 - Have hearing damage assessed 6 - Repeat
