I have had an Omron Pocket Pedometer Model HJ-720ITC for about one month. I want to adjust the stride length, as it does not compute the miles correctly. How do I adjust the stride length? Do I have to start all over and redo the clock and all? Thanks for your help.
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
I went online and used the Omron manual again. I had tried it before and it didn’t seem to work but just persevered and had success.

## How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Stride length is equivalent to velocity divided by 0.5 cadence (speed/0.5 cadence). Our athlete with a gait velocity of 70 m/min and a cadence of 100 steps per minute would have a calculated stride length of 1.4 m: (70 m/min)/(0.5) × 100 steps per minute = stride length of 1.4 m.
In the same amount of distance individuals with a shorter stride length tend to get higher step counts, while those with longer stride lengths have less.
Many ellipticals now use power adjustment to change the length of the user`s stride. This is done by changing the level of the power ramp, thus adjusting the length of the user`s stride. To make this adjustment, simply press either the power ramp increase or decrease button on the console.
First measure your height in centimetres, then if you are female multiply this by 1.14, and if you are male, multiply your height by 1.35. Round the result to the nearest whole number, and this will be your stride length in centimetres.
As runners age, their speed decreases primarily due to a decrease in stride length. Their cadence (stride rate) remains essentially the same, typically about 180 steps per minute (steps/min).
If you have longer stride length, then you will be needing less oxygen to sustain running pace (you will be able to sustain faster speeds and get less fatigued as a result). So really, having good stride length gives you both speed and efficiency.
Shortening your stride can help you run faster and longer. When you`re taking longer strides your legs have to cover more distance with each step and you end up landing inefficiently, explains Wight. This places additional stress on your body—and let`s be real, running is already stressful enough.
To boost your stride rate, focus on your cadence during one easy run per week. Stay relaxed and try to glide over the ground. Also, pump your arms a little faster and your legs will follow. Check your stride rate a few times throughout the run to see if you can maintain the increased turnover.
An average person has a stride length of approximately 2.1 to 2.5 feet.
Height, or leg length, is one of the primary factors that affect your step length average or your typical stride length. Taller individuals have longer legs with a greater inseam, so the lever length of their leg between each joint (hip to knee to ankle) is longer.
If the average stride length is 80 centimetres, it takes 1250 steps to walk one kilometre.
Stride length is the length of your stride from one footfall to the next, measured in meters.
If you`re maintaining the same pace but running with a shortened stride length, you`ll increase your cadence because you`ll be taking more steps per minute,” she explains. “If you lengthen your stride, you`ll be taking less steps per minute at the same pace.”
Stretches To Increase Stride Length. Stretching the hips, glutes, calves, hamstrings, and quadriceps will help you to achieve maximal joint flexibility and as a result, maintain proper stride length. Static stretches should be done after an exercise and should be held for one to three sets of 30 seconds each.
Distance in feet/number of steps = step length.

If you want to calculate your walking stride length, divide the number of steps you took by 2 and divide that number into the measured distance. If it took you 16 steps to cover 20 feet, divide the number of steps (16) by 2 to get the number of strides.

Stride width is measured either between the medial-most borders of the two heels or between lines through the midline of the two heels. Normal stride width for adults is between 1-3 inches (3-8 cm).
On average, adults have a step length of about 2.2 to 2.5 feet. In general, if you divide a person`s step length by their height, the ratio value you get is about 0.4 (with a range from about 0.41 to 0.45).
Research shows that runners with long legs can have a short stride, while shorter runners can have a long stride. There are a lot of variables that go into the equation, including your individual biometrics: your overall height, the length of your legs, and running biomechanics like your foot strike, says Sperl.
An average person has a stride length of approximately 2.1 to 2.5 feet. That means that it takes over 2,000 steps to walk one mile and 10,000 steps would be almost 5 miles. A sedentary person may only average 1,000 to 3,000 steps a day.

Machine will stop adjusting resistance. On start up the machine will usually work. I can go through the calibration procedure and it will calibrate and work normally for 4 or 5 resistance adjustments. It will then stop adjusting. It acts like there is a cable pulled and refuses to adjust, even though I am not getting the warning telling me to “Release cable”
I have modified the wiring harness so that the wires do not fall off from the stepper motor, so this is not the problem. If I shut the machine down and leave it for several minutes, it will come back and work normal again… for a while. I am wondering if there is a problem with the sensors that are detecting a cable pull? Is there a way to disable those sensors to see if that is the problem
ANSWER : I would think that your problem has possibly to do with a faulty power supply, component, see to my mind it is a thermal problem as it heats up,it goes faulty? The Voltage changes and it goes out of spec.. When left to cool, it then is OK… Usually, & from my experience this is a thermal problem. To see obtain some Freeze Spray, from radio Shack or similar,and spray components on the main power board, and others too, use it on any large heat sinked components and see if when you do this the fault clears. Then replace that component(s).

Or as you suggest the sensors that feed the inputs maybe with sensors though one has little option but to replace them and see if this clears the problem.

How do i adjust the mix on my vn750 vulcan

My snowblower is the 12/33 and I am having a problem…. the belt that drives the auger is loose and I can’t see the adjustment. I would like to know how to adjust this belt…. thank you

I bought the Knoxx adjustable stock for my mossberg 500. The forend that comes with it is realy nice and Ide like to use it, but the end nut will not reach the threads. Do i need to buy a new adapter nut that is longer to secure my forend ? I saw one for sale by houge but wasnt sure if that would work on the knoxx forend ?? I realy like the forend sent by knoxx, would be a shame not to use it. What a waste to give that nice piece away and not give the adapter to use it ?? Thanks Noel
ANSWER : That forearm is designed for the 7 5/8″ slide action tube. I’m guessing yours is the 6 1/2″ slide action tube. Take the forearm off your tube and measure it with a ruler. From the very back edge of the action bar collar….that round part the bars are pinned to….all the way to the front edge of the threads. If yours is a 6 1/2″, the Hogue adapter won’t work. You’ll need to buy a new slide action tube. That Hogue adapter is meant to let you use the Hogue rubber coated forearm on your standard sized tube….the Hogue rubber forearm is a hair longer than the standard tube. It won’t give you the length to make up the entire shorter tube length. If you’re handy with a dremel, you could go adapter plus a bit of careful cutting but I won’t suggest you do it if you aren’t certain of your skills.

The selecttech dumbell adjuster will not move. It says there is 7.5 lbs on the bar and there is actally only 2.5 lbs. The adjuster wheel will not turn. How do you fix it?
ANSWER : Push the button on the bottom of that releases the adjuster to spin. Set both to sides to 5, put all the weights back and your ready to place it back and select a weight.
