The Uber Sleep Cycle: The HRV and REM Ratios


Sleep quality is often related to training design, and using the Zeo system can quantify and cross-validate effective programs. Every conference the weak suggestion of getting more sleep is tossed around but what coaches are really turning over stones to do a better job? Getting better sleep can be simplified by getting to be and out of bed at the same time and having a optimal training loads. Other factors such as caffeine and regeneration modalities are important, but getting on a good sleep cycle is vital. Time after time I see athletes go to Europe and get hammered from time zone changes, so it’s important to get to your destination earlier. Pro athletes in team sports is another story, but similar rules apply. A hypnogram is an excellent data timeline of what is going on, and using ithlete daily can see some interesting trends.
