Recovery Analysis

Recovery is a fundamental aspect of training, since without enough and efficient recovery, performance cannot be optimal.
Each athlete's individual metabolism will define his recovery needs.
Several factors influence recovery. We can break them down as follows:
  1. 1.
    Recovery Score
  2. 2.
    Heart Rate Variability
  3. 3.
    Resting Heart Rate
  4. 4.
    Blood Oxygen Saturation
  5. 5.
    Skin Temperature
A good recovery (66 - 100%) will indicate that the autonomic nervous system is capable of handling high training loads, e.g. high intensities.
An average recovery (33 - 66%) means that the body has not fully recovered from the various exertions beforehand, but that it is capable of performing moderate intensity training.
Poor recovery (0 - 32%) means that the athlete has not recovered from the training or race. It is therefore important to carry out a recovery day either with a short training session at low intensity or with a rest day.
These insights can also indicate or be signs of a future injury, hence the need to act accordingly with each physical state.
Just like with sleep data, it is essential to be very thorough and regular in wearing the device the in order to have reliable data. Wearables often need a minimum of 30 days of history for the data to be accurate.
