Professor Maria Carrasco-Poyatos and co-authors at the University of Almería just published the latest paper on HRV-guided training, titled "Heart rate variability-guided training in professional runners: effects on performance and vagal modulation"
Thank you Maria and co-authors for using HRV4Training and for involving me in this work. You can find the paper, here, including the main highlights:
Heart rate variability (HRV) trends over long periods of time (e.g. from weeks to months) are one of the most interesting and complex aspects to analyze when it comes to resting physiology
While day-to-day (or acute) changes reflect well stressors such as training intensity, the menstrual cycle, sickness, alcohol intake, or travel in the day(s) before the measurement, in the long term things are quite different
In this post, I will cover our approach to trends analysis in HRV4Training, and cover some of the features in the app that should help you make sense of the data in the longer term
