Description

Heart rate variability (HRV) training is based on the science of recovery, preventing overtraining, and how stress affects our clients' ability to train. It accounts for all kinds of stress and monitors the day to day fluctuations in heart rate and intensity. We'll discuss the research behind HRV, the practical application of the training, and the best apps to use; then we'll put it to the test by performing a unique HRV training program using minimal equipment. See how you can use HRV training to gain maximum benefit from each workout.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe heart rate variability is as it relates to improving the training of our clients.
  2. Categorize the day-to-day stressors that can contribute to having a low heart rate variability.
  3. Describe how a client can reduce life’s stressors in order to achieve a high heart rate variability.
  4. Describe how heart rate variability is the change in length of time between heartbeats.
  5. Detail the signs and symptoms of overtraining, lack of sleep, poor hydration, and too much unmanaged stress.
  6. Implement a low-intensity, medium-intensity and high-intensity workout predicated on the heart rate variability number.

About the Author

Mike Bracko, EdD IDEA Author/Presenter

My passion is working with hockey players to improve their skating performance. I do this with on-ice and off-ice training. I work with male and female players 8 yrs old to pro players. Another passion of mine is presenting at fitness shows. In particular IDEA shows - IDEA World and IDEA PT East & West. IDEA is a remarkable organization lead by two remarkable people - Peter and Kathie Davis. I love playing ice hockey, x-c-skiing, mt biking, and being in the mountains. Also love all water sports especially surfing and body boarding. Also one of my favorite things to do is taking my dog, Bailey (Black Lab) for trail runs, swimming, and just walking.
