How to Train with WHOOP — the Power Meter for Recovery
The WHOOP is wearable wristband for athletes to measures their sleep, strain, heart rate variability and resting heart rate. The Whoop's algorithm combines those metrics to give you a recovery score. Are you recovered or not?
Here at FasCat we've been testing the WHOOP strap for 8 months and wanted to dive in and share our thoughts with the podcast community!
In this podcast our guest is WHOOP content manager, Mark Van Deusen to explain how the WHOOP strap works. He's also been generous enough to offer our listeners a free month of a WHOOP subscription with code 'fascatwhoop' at checkout ($30 value)!
We talk about how using the WHOOP enhances our training and racing, what the different metrics mean, and a whole lot more. Learn more at whoop.com!
