Researchers at the University of Salzburg, Austria and the University of California wanted to test the idea that if daytime heart rate variability (HRV) is strongly linked to physical and mental health, would HRV also be a predictor of healthy sleep?
This is an interesting study that suggest that HRV has the potential to deliver a sport independent comparable training load number, a goal long sought after by sports scientists and coaches.
A very interesting post looking at predicting team sports performance using heart rate variability
Recent research sheds light on a vagus nerve ‘hack’ which reduces arthritic inflammation. This new evidence further backs up that an increase in your HRV through exercise can reduce inflammation.
