What is Heart Rate Variability (HRV)?

HRV is a method of determining how much stress the body is under and how well you recover. HRV has been around for many years and is used by elite sportsman, business executives and even astronauts. HRV has been extensively researched and the Vilistus HRV system is soundly based on rigorous academic experimentation over the past twenty years.

How does it work?

Your heart rate varies with each heart beat. Heart rate variability is simply the analysis of the length of the gap between heart beats (known as the Inter-beat interval). HRV is affected by aerobic fitness and a well conditioned heart will typically show a large variation in heart rate.

What affects HRV?

Heart Rate Variability can be affected by a number of things, some you can do something about – like level of fitness, others are simply a matter or your age and genetics. Bodies under stress tend to have reduced HRV and, in any event, HRV is reduced when you take exercise.

So what is the purpose of HRV training?

If you work out regularly, you'll know that the “recovery time” varies. It's the same with HRV, as you train your heart, your recovery time from stress or training will reduce.

How do I use it?

The Vilistus HRV system is very simple to use. Attach a clip to your ear lobe or finger, start the software and you're ready to start training.
