Do you use HRV (heart rate variability) to monitor client/athlete stress, fatigue and even burnout?
Heart rate variability (usually known as HRV) is a relatively new method for assessing the effects of stress on your body. It is measured as the time gap between your heart beats that varies as you breathe in and out. Research evidence increasingly links high HRV to good health and a high level of fitness, whilst decreased HRV is linked to stress, fatigue and even burnout.
Many of my clients use Heart Rate Monitors primarily focusing on their HTZ.
But using a Heart Rate Monitor to monitoring HR response is a commonly used part of a client's training regimen. Great question.
I can't see how it would be applicable to someone whose goal is simply fitness related.
If there is no chronic illness involved, research already tells us what the physiological response to exercise is.
Please elaborate on how you apply it with your clients.
