Our long term goal is to push further our knowledge on complex relations between physiological data, lifestyle and performance by providing consumers with a clinical grade tool, and outsourcing data collection to thousand of users, effectively carrying out a massive research study. In this section we will be including peer reviewed publications and other posts covering our approach and findings. You can also find all our publications at this page on Research Gate.

From the Quantified Self to Epidemiological Research covers the first three years of HRV4Training and the approach described above, in more details. Full story here. Training (mostly) slow to race (kind of) fast is about training polarization, the data analyzed in this post inspired some of the latest HRV4Training features.
