Joining us today is one of the most forward-thinking coaches in the world!  Joel Jamieson has trained elite MMA fighters, Navy SEALS, and worked for some of the largest fitness brands in the world.  Joel was a pioneer in using HRV to evaluate training and recovery in his athletes and over the past several years has worked on developing tech that gives the average person access to this advanced analysis.  In this episode Joel walks us through evaluating your recovery based on HRV, explains the energy production systems behind HRV and how you can start improving your HRV.
