How to Train with WHOOP — the Power Meter for Recovery
The WHOOP is wearable designed for athletes that measures your sleep, strain, and cardiovascular parameters like heart rate variability and resting heart rate. The Whoop's algorithm factor's all those metrics to give you a recovery score. Simply, are you recovered like you think you are? Cool right? 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! [fascat_promo_section]The one and only "Six Weeks to the Sweet Spot Training Plan"[/fascat_promo_section] We're also joined by the WHOOP content manager, Mark Van Deusen to hear 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!
