Ageing, exercise, and HRV

Proven to protect against a wide array of diseases, exercise may be the most powerful anti-aging intervention known to science[1]Researchers shed light on how exercise preserves physical fitness during aging[2]Exercise preserves physical fitness during aging through AMPK and mitochondrial dynamics. As we age, our fitness drops off faster, and recovery takes longer. Our training needs to adapt… Continue reading Ageing, exercise, and HRV

Using wearables to measure HRV

The validity of HRV results using wearables has been questioned in academia. Wearable devices usually adopt photoplethysmography (PPG), using the photo sensors in the device, rather than electrocardiograph (ECG) that is used in medical and strap based heart rate monitors (HRM), to measure HRV. The top wearable devices use algorithms to compensate for the inaccuracies… Continue reading Using wearables to measure HRV

Resting Heart Rate and mortality

Men with a resting hearth rate (RHR) of over 75 beats per minute at 50 years of age have twice as high risk of all-cause death, cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease during 21 years of follow-up compared with men with RHR of 55 beats per minute or below[1]Impact of changes in heart rate with age on all-cause death and… Continue reading Resting Heart Rate and mortality
