Revisiting 60-s HRV recordings vs. Criterion in athletes

I’ve recently had the pleasure of peer-reviewing a few very well-written and carried out studies investigating duration requirements for stabilization preceding HRV recordings by different research groups. I look forward to seeing the published versions as the quality of the … Continue reading

HRV responses to in-season training among D-1 college football players

During spring training camp, we found that Linemen demonstrate the greatest reductions in LnRMSSD at ~20 h post-training, followed by Mid-Skill and Skill, possibly reflecting inadequate cardiovascular recovery between consecutive-day sessions for the larger players, despite lower PlayerLoad values. (Full-text … Continue reading

Ultra-short SDNN:RMSSD ratio strongly relates with LF:HF ratio in athletes

Our latest methodological study suggests that the SDNN:RMSSD ratio derived from a 60-sec recording may be a more convenient alternative to the traditional LF:HF ratio in athletes. Ultra-shortened time-domain HRV parameters at rest and following exercise in athletes: an alternative … Continue reading

HRV and Training Load Among NCAA D-1 Football Players Throughout Spring Camp

For our first study with football, we wanted to determine if cardiovascular recovery from training varied among positional groups (i.e., Skill, Mid-Skill and Linemen). We also looked at some longitudinal relationships between cardiac-autonomic and training load parameters throughout spring camp. … Continue reading

The effect of training status on HRV in D-1 collegiate swimmers

When implementing HRV monitoring with a new team, the coach will be quick to point out the inter-individual variability in the athletes’ trends. Some athletes are showing high scores and some are low. Some are showing considerable daily fluctuation while … Continue reading
