Joel Jamieson Heart Rate Variability – How to Measure Heart Rate Variability – Training Heart Rate Variability
Measuring heart rate variability is a non-invasive gauge of the autonomic nervous system. It’s a technology that’s now available at an affordable price so coaches and trainers can use it to monitor an athlete’s training and recovery state. Joel Jamieson, a strength coach who works with a variety of athletes, explains how to measure heart rate variability in this lecture and describes how he uses it to guide his training programs both daily and over the long term.
“The training continuum comes down to general adaptations. It’s the process of how the body goes about adapting to stress, not just from a single workout, but from repetitive stress or repetitive workouts. That’s where we consider the long-term picture of adaptation—the long-term picture of how the body responds to training and stress. That’s where a technology like heart rate variability fits in because we want to understand where the body is in that continuum.”~Joel Jamieson

Joel Jamieson is a strength and conditioning coach who specializes in working with MMA fighters. The unique demands of MMA led him in his efforts to learn about HRV, and to help bring it to more coaches, personal trainers and athletes.
