In this episode we interview a data scientist who has developed an application that easily and affordably measures an individuals stress levels and indicates when the best time to do harder, quality training sessions is and when the best time to focus on recovery is.

Marco Altini of HRV4Training is a scientist working at the intersection between technology, health and human performance. Almost a decade ago Marco learnt, through studies, the effects of stress on human performance and had the idea to create an application that could easily measure physiological stress using the phone camera. The app combines heart rate variability (HRV) measurements with subjective annotations of sleep quality, motivation, perceived performance during the last trainings and muscle soreness to provide you with guidance on a day to day basis.

In this podcast episode, we discuss the studies about the effects of stress on human performance, as well as the HRV4Training Application.

You can learn more about HRV4Training at their website (www.hrv4training.com) or Instagram page (@hrv4training) or by downloading the application in the app store.
