Time: 3-4pm Mountain, 2-3pm Pacific, 4-5pm Central, 5-6pm Eastern
Most athletes know that getting enough rest after exercise is essential to high-level performance. Still many over-train and feel guilty about taking a day off though scientific research proves that improved performance in competitive sports is achieved by alternating periods of intensive training with periods of relative rest. Standardized training programs produce well documented results, but do not take individual responses into account. In the past decade, college sports teams and world-class athletes have been increasingly using Heart Rate Variability (HRV) to monitor fatigue and recovery from workouts. In this webinar you will be able to understand:
- The Science and Physiology of HRV
- Using HRV for Individualized Endurance Training
- The Relationship Between Stress, Food, HRV and Peak Performance
