Getting in better and better shape

My resting heart rate has dropped dramatically the last week, so has the other “recovery tests” I am using. Which is a great indicator that my body is finally adjusting the to training load again. It takes a few weeks, but from now on the system…

will be much easier to lift further.

The recovery tests I use are actually quite interesting. It is a combination of the tests on the most expensive “Polar” heartrate watch – where you measure heart rate variability beat by beat in a special pattern and personal experience. The combination of these factors makes it very easy to tell almost exactly how your body is responding to the training. If you are building or breaking down. If you are healthy and sick. Quite interesting, as it is always difficult to tell your exact body from just your subjective feeling. The more objective you can get – and at the same time accurate, the better. I believe in a few years, most top athletes will use resting parameters to tell where they are in their training – and make training even more dynamic based on these variations. Important to be a small step in front 🙂

All well,
