The Elite HRV Podcast: Heart Rate Variability, Biohacking Health & Performance, Quantified Self
About This Show
Uncommon methods for maximizing health and performance with an emphasis on real-world implementation of Heart Rate Variability and other biomarkers.
From biohacking to quantified self, world class doctors, coaches and athletes cover the latest research (from the lab and field), and the methods and "tricks" that get the best results.
Right out of the gate you can expect the President of the American Functional Medicine Association, leading HRV researchers, elite and Olympic-level sport scientists, metabolism hackers, data scientists, rehabilitation specialists, and more.

* Coaches: statistics and data analysis, possibly a new requirement going forward
* Limitations of dose-response modeling & predicting performance from training load
* Can athletes afford to ignore non-training factors?
* Subjective wellness questionnaires are useful for athletes: self-rated mood, perceived sleep quality, and others
* Changing the conversation between coaches and athletes. What’s going on in your life outside of training?
* Perfect periodization. The case for separating volume and intensity in a model for training.
* Volume is sometimes underrated. Intensity is appealing but isn’t always the solution to better results.
* Modulating volume and intensity in training for better long term results.
* Connective tissue takes longer to adapt than muscle tissue. Why this is important for long term results.
* Predicting injury with machine learning. Variables to consider.
