Earlier this week I discussed my recent results following a period of forced down time. Because I can be a wee bit obsessive about working out, and not the best about recovery, Coach Jim suggested using BioForce HRV. It definitely helps keep me aware of when I need to focus on “working in so I can work out”. If you haven’t seen it, I wrote a blog post about HRV previously which you can check out here. It helps explain how HRV works and how we incorporate it into our training.
I know the recovery aspect of training is not the fun stuff like dripping sweat in a gym, but it is crucial to help keep you healthy and on track to reach your training goals. I have learned this lesson first hand and encourage you to explore methods to make it easier to include into your plan as well.
