Dan Plews, PhD, is a world-leading researcher in the field of Heart Rate Variability (HRV), and an elite-level coach. Today, we discuss how you can use HRV as a tool in your triathlon training to find the right balance between rest and stress, to help push your rate of improvement in the sport and give you an extra edge.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-How HRV can help you decide when to do high-intensity workouts and when to hold back, and why that may be better than sticking to a rigid program
-How to use your HRV baseline as a tool to help determine if your training load in a block of training is appropriate, too large, or too small
-The tools, apps, and resources that the Plews recommends using to get going with HRV.
