In my column today at the Endurance Corner website, I share part 2 in a series about endurance athletes and heart rate variability (HRV). Today, I talk about measuring HRV and how athletes might use HRV to help guide their training. Stay tuned for part 3, where I’ll talk about the available hardware and software options and summarize my thoughts on the subject.
In my column this month at Endurance Corner, I’m writing about heart rate variability (HRV). In Part 1, I offer an introduction to the topic and develop the basic concepts and terminology. In an upcoming Part 2, I’ll write about the application of HRV to endurance training and share some information about the currently available hardware and software tools that athletes might find helpful.
