HRV and applied sports science with Jamie Stanley, PhD | EP#308
Listen now
Jamie Stanley, PhD, is a sports physiologist with the South Australian Sports Institute. Jamie did his PhD thesis on the topic of Heart Rate Variability (HRV), but in his applied sports science role today he has a wide breadth of performance and recovery optimisation expertise, and we tap into that expertise on a number of interesting applied sports science questions in today's interview.    IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT: -The responsibilities and day-to-day work of Jamie in his role as sports scientist supporting athletes and coaches -How to use HRV to monitor training adaptations -Looking at medium and long-term HRV trends rather than daily values -Tools of the trade: recommendations for tools with which to measure HRV and analyse the data -Tracking resting heart rate, sleep duration, and sleep quality -Lab and field testing - who should use what kind of testing, and when?  -Best practices for monitoring training load -How to find your individual physiological limiters, and when to work on strengths vs. weaknesses -Continuous blood glucose monitoring   SHOWNOTES:   SCIENTIFIC TRIATHLON AND THAT TRIATHLON SHOW WEBPAGE:   SPONSORS: Precision Hydration - Want to optimise your performance in hot or humid conditions, avoid cramping, and make sure your hydration is on point?
