Triathlon Victoria is delighted to announce a free webinar on Heart Rate Variability (HRV), and its application in endurance coaching.
Delivered by Marco Altini, a global expert in the field and founder of HRV4Training, the webinar will provide coaches with world-leading information and access to this cutting edge athlete management software at a discounted rate which has been negotiated by Triathlon Victoria for accredited coaches.
|Date||April 6, 2020|
|Delivery||Webinar / Virtual Classroom|
What is HRV & why is it useful?
For those familiar with the work of leading global sports scientists and elite coaches, such as the likes of Dan Plews, etc., you may be aware of the work in this field.
However, for those that aren’t HRV is a more accurate way of measuring each athlete’s response to training load, rather than looking at just the standard metrics of Acute Training Load (ATL), Chronic Training Load (CTL) and Training Stress Balance (TSB) in Training Peaks.
The ability to measure not just these training loads but also their effect on the stress response of the athlete will enhance your ability to fine-tune individual training plans, reduce injury and illness risk and plan harder sessions around times that the athlete is more capable of absorbing them, thereby accelerating the desired training adaptations.

Foundation coaches are also welcome to participate from an educational interest and development perspective, but please remember that the application of this will be outside of your scope of practice.
The webinar itself, while discussing scientific concepts, will be delivered in a fashion that everyone will be able to understand while keeping even the most advanced coaches engaged.
