In this episode I speak with Andrea Hudy, Assistant Athletics Director of Sports Performance at the University of Kansas and Author of Power Positions. It was a pleasure to speak with Andrea after reading her book earlier in the year and after speaking with her extensively about it, I would recommend it even more. Both Chris Tombs and Bryan Mann recommended Andrea to me for the podcast and again, when these guys speak, I listen.
I must thank Marco Altini (HRV4Training) for providing great content in the technology segment on heart rate variability. If you are interested in further reading on interpreting HRV trends, check out this post on Marco's blog
