*from Muscle for Life podcast.

Incredibly honored to be interviewed by Mike Matthews on Muscle for Life podcast about one of my all time fav topics, HRV.

Even though he was originally skeptical of HRV as some weird biohack, Mike wanted me to tell him why using HRV makes a difference in training and recovery.

Here’s a breakdown of our talk:

  • 5:13 – What is heart rate variability?
  • 10:06 – What are the differences between average heart rate and heart rate variability?
  • 15:07 – What do higher and lower levels of heart rate variability indicate?
  • 17:26 – Why is variability affected by the physiology?
  • 25:08 – What affects heart rate variability?
  • 37:36 – Does diet affect heart rate variability? Does caffeine affect HRV as well?
  • 40:02 – How does diet affect heart rate variability?
  • 58:07 – How much does training intensity affect heart rate variability?
  • 01:15:24 – Is there a specific range where you you tell the client to slow down?
  • 01:30:35 – How does nutrition affect heart rate variability?
  • 01:43:04 – How can someone track their heart rate variability?

Enjoy!
Dr Mike
