Heart Rate Variability
Heart rate variability is one of the core metrics used by Whoop to measure your recovery. Recovery is super important for power athletes, like us CrossFitters, because it can help guide out intensity and expectations at the gym. It also gives us insight into the impacts our lifestyle choices (nutrition, alcohol use, sleep, stress control) on our health. If your recovery is low, it's a wake up call to pay more attention to aspects of your lifestyle that you might be neglecting .
When I first started wearing my Whoop in 2020 in new nothing about HRV. Now, I'm chasing it through my nutrition, hydration, sleep and everything else I mentioned above.
Even if you're not using a Whoop to track your HRV many other biometric devices measure it. You can even use an app and the camera on your phone to track your HRV. If you want to take your performance to the next level, you need to take your recovery to the next level. The most effective way to do that is to improve your HRV. Todays' Whoop podcast will help you understand what HRV is and how you can work to improve it so you feel better.
