We are very happy to announce our “Coaching and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) for Improved Sports Performance” Webinar. Most athletes know that getting enough rest after exercise is essential to high-level performance, but many still over train and feel guilty when they take a day off. In competitive sports, improved performance is achieved by alternating periods of intensive training with periods of relative rest. While standardized training programs produce well documented results, they do not take individual responses into account. In the past decade, college sports teams and world-class athletes have been increasingly using HRV to monitor fatigue and recovery from workouts. In this webinar you will be able to understand:
- The Science and Physiology of HRV
- In depth explanation of HRV metrics rMSSD, LF and HF
- How to interpret the HRV metrics
- Using HRV for Individualized Endurance Training
- The Relationship Between Stress, Food, HRV and Peak Performance
- The basics of the Kubios HRV analysis software
