This past March I had the pleasure of meeting with Mark Roozen, a strength coach with the Cleveland Browns as well as one of their AT’s. We discussed HRV and it’s potential usefulness in a team setting at both the collegiate and professional level.
Coach Roozen and several other prominent figures within the strength and conditioning field operate a website dedicated to educating professionals in the field about various topics pertaining to performance including nutrition, training, sport psychology and so on. He invited me to write an article on HRV for the site. The article is up and you can see it here http://www.tpeagroup.com/public/Heart%20Rate%20Variability%20Training.cfm
In the article I discuss;
– What HRV is
– Why it’s important to monitor
– How you can monitor HRV (devices with new screen shots and features)
– Relevant research that demonstrates the effectiveness of HRV monitoring
I hope you enjoy it!
