In this podcast, Mike and I discussed HRV (Heart rate variability)

1.How is the nervous system effected by stress both from training and everyday life?
2.What is HRV?
3.How to you use it in regards to your training and what devices can you use?
4.What role does cortisol have on stress and the nervous system?
5.Adequate sleep, solid nutrition and managing your stress levels are obviously things that can help, but do you have any other recommendations that can help improve recovery?
