Resting Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability (HRV): What’s the Difference? — Part 4, individual-level data
In part 1 of this series, I covered the basic physiology of heart rhythm regulation. In part 2, I discussed the technology required for these measurements, why some sensors can be trusted, and why others can be used just for resting heart rate, and not for HRV. In part 3, we started looking at the data, with an analysis of population-level differences in resting heart rate and HRV.
In this blog, we finally get to the most interesting aspect: individual-level data. Needless to say, both resting heart rate and HRV become a lot more useful when tracked over time within individuals, and this is exactly what I’ll be showing here. I’ll also try to highlight some of the differences between these two parameters, so that you can better understand what the data means when tracked in response to strong acute stressors (e.g. training, sickness, alcohol intake, the menstrual cycle) and in the longer run (e.g. changes in fitness).

In part 1 of this series, I covered the basic physiology of heart rhythm regulation. In part 2, I discussed the technology required for these measurements, why some sensors can be trusted, and why others can be used just for resting heart rate, and not for HRV.
In this blog, we finally start looking at the data, and in particular at population-level differences in resting heart rate and HRV, what factors consistently show changes in resting physiology, and what we can derive from this type of analysis.
We will discuss absolute values and differences between subgroups of the population with respect to:

I had a nice chat yesterday with Michael @ x3training about heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback
It was my first time trying to cover this topic, I hope you’ll find it useful

This is a guest blog by Jim House covering the past 2 years of his personal experience using HRV4Training and HRV Logger
I have been riding a mountain bike for about 30 years. I am now 62 years old and just retired and have been diagnosed with leukaemia.
Rather than sitting around feeling sorry for myself I thought I needed a challenge. I live near Eastbourne in the UK and decided I would ride the South Downs Way, which is 102 miles long (90% off road), including 11000ft of climbing.
I have had successes and failures in my training so I have called this blog The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and I hope you can gain something from my experiences.
Jim and his playground
My approach in the past hasn’t always been very structured, but for this challenge, I decided to do it a bit differently. In early 2020 I started using HRV4Training and got myself a training plan.
From the HRV4Training screenshot below you can see just how useful the feedback was to know when to push and when to have a day off, and also the desired effect of adjusting training this way, which resulted in a stable and consistent HRV, never below my optimal range as shown in HRV4Training Pro.
The first 9 months of HRV monitoring showed consistently stable responses as I adjusted my training based on HRV4Training's feedback
Part 1 of our latest series is all about physiology, and in particular goes deep into the differences between resting heart rate and HRV:
‣ Why do we care
‣ Bird’s-eye view
‣ Understanding autonomic control of the heart
We hope you'll find it useful, enjoy the read
We have ve updated our Ultimate Guide to Heart Rate Variability (HRV): Part 1, that you can find here:

HRV4Training just got a new look (both on Android and iPhone). While we have made quite a few changes, some of the most important are in the homepage, which now displays:
In this post, I will provide an overview of the parameters above, trying to highlight how you can use them to better understand your body's response to training and lifestyle stressors.
Today's score and the daily advice: capture acute changes
The top part of the screen shows your daily HRV and HR, right after the measurement.
Today's score typically captures well strong acute stressors. What’s an acute stressor? Acute stressors are events that affect your physiology in the immediate future. Think about an intense workout, an intercontinental flight, a night out with too many drinks, high caffeine intake, etc. - anything that has an effect on your physiology which lasts from a few minutes up to 24–48 hours. Check out our ultimate guide to HRV, part 2, for some examples.
Typically, strong acute stressors limit our capacity to handle additional stress, and therefore to perform optimally, both mentally and physically. Thus, the daily advice in the app will analyze your daily HRV and determine if today's score is outside of your normal range, to provide you with meaningful advice.
I will cover in the next section the concept of the normal range, but the important bit to remember for now, is simply that HRV data is highly individual and has an inherently high day-to-day variability. This means that it is not meaningful to compare to others, and that in your own data there can be large fluctuations between consecutive days.
What are the implications? To make effective use of the data, we need to be able to determine what changes are trivial, or just part of normal day to day fluctuations (what we call your normal range), and what changes do matter and might require more attention or simply truly represent a positive (or negative) adaptation to training and other stressors.
This is exactly what you see in the homepage with the daily advice which is constructed from today's score and your normal range. Check out an example below, where you can see the daily HRV score below normal in the first two cases, and within the normal range in the third case:
In the three days shown above, the normal range is always the same (7.4 to 7.9 HRV). However, the daily score highlights high acute stress in the first two screenshots, as the values of 7.2 and 7.3 are below the normal range.
In the third screenshot, we have an HRV of 7.8, a score close to the higher end of the normal range, which we can interpret as either lack of strong acute stressors or a positive response to stress.
HRV4Training combines the daily score, normal values and your questionnaire's data to determine the color coding and daily advice message. In particular, the following parameters are used: sleep quality, muscle soreness, motivation to train, perceived performance in your last training (or a subset of these if you do not use all of these tags).
More on your normal range
Your normal range is a representation of your historical data. Currently, we use the past 60 days of your measurements to build your normal range. As soon as you start using the app, HRV4Training will start learning what day to day changes are normal for you, and what changes are outside your normal range. As you gather more data, the app will get better at this job, eventually giving you the best estimate when having all the 60 days of data.
The normal range is always kept current, so that you are not stuck in older data, but at any given time, the most recent 60 days are always used. Over the years, we made a few adjustments to this method, but we believe that 60 days is a great trade-off between the following:
For heart rate and HRV, 60 days of data seems to be just right. Remember that a software that interprets any HRV increase as a good sign, or any HRV decrease as a bad sign, is failing to correctly represent the fact that there are normal variations in physiology, and that only variations outside of this normal range, should trigger concern or more attention or simply be interpreted as actual changes. The new interface in HRV4Training should make it easier to capture changes outside of normal.
Finally, if you are a Pro user, you will also see the normal values in the Baseline page, together with some of your annotations.
Below you can see an example of altered physiology during the menstrual cycle (both HRV and heart rate) as well as a period of higher stress in the third screenshot (several days with suppressed HRV, below normal range).
What about the baseline?
In this post, I have talked about the daily advice, daily score and normal range. However, there is one extra bit of information that can be helpful in keeping track of recent progress, the recent trend or baseline.
In particular, the baseline can give us a more stable indication of how things are trending. A low daily score with a baseline within range could be less problematic than a couple of low daily scores, which will take the baseline also below normal, highlighting a more serious form of stress.
Recent research on HRV-guided training for example relies on the baseline to implement changes in training. If the baseline is below the normal range, then an easier training session or rest are prescribed. Obviously, research studies are often oversimplifications of more complex processes, and while a simple rule (such as "reducing intensity when the baseline is below normal") allows researchers to analyze systematically the impact of this protocol, we might not want to ignore a daily low score either (even if the baseline is still within normal).
In my view, it makes sense in general to focus on the baseline and look at the big picture, this is exactly why we now report trends (both the arrow and numerical value of the baseline) in the homepage for heart rate and HRV. Intuitively, only larger stressors will affect the baseline. However, on days in which we have a lower score, I believe it is important to use that information as well. Try to assess how you feel, also subjectively (of course!), and determine if the acute HRV drop is something transitory (maybe associated to poor sleep) or if it might be something more serious to be cautious about (for example getting sick).
Finally, HRV4Training combines multi-parameter trends to help you better understand the big picture. Looking at baseline changes in HRV, heart rate and the coefficient of variation of HRV, the app can automatically determine if your recent trends are changing in a trivial way, or if the change is something to take more seriously, based on your historical data. Once the various trends have been analyzed, HRV4Training will determine your physiological response to training as one of the following categories:
You can find this analysis under Menu / Insights / HRV Trends, once you have collected at least 40 days of data
Alright, that's all for this post, I hope you are enjoying the new interface and finding it useful to better understand how your physiology is changing both at the acute and at the chronic level. Thank you for your support

Below is a few months of data highlighting the relationship between the menstrual cycle, resting heart rate (HR) and perceived physical condition. For the visualization, we are using the Overview page in HRV4Training Pro, which makes it easier to spot longer term trends as it displays normal values, baseline, training load and subjective metrics, all in the same page.
In particular, we can see an increase in resting heart rate in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, which anticipates menstruation and a reduction in perceived physical condition.
This is a good example of the importance of looking at physiology + context, to better understand the full picture. As physical as well as mental stressors continuously change over time, the relationship can change. Yet, analyzing these physiological changes and properly contextualizing them (which in this case means understanding that the menstrual cycle can drive much of the change in resting physiology), can help deriving the right conclusions.
The data below was collected using HRV4Training's camera-based measurement every morning.
I hope you've found this short case study informative!
We have just released an update for the dashboard in HRV4Training Pro, comparing the current week to your past month for subjective and physiological data
In the new version, you will find:
This way it should be easier to quantify how much each parameter has changed in the past 7 days, with respect to the previous month, and how you are trending in general
See an example below, and try it for your data at http://HRV4T.com
In this podcast, we chat with ultrarunners Jason Brooks and Jason Schlarb about HRV and HRV4Training, what to expect in terms of acute changes and long term trends, and how to use the data
We also touch on some of our more experimental tools for training intensity estimation such as DFA alpha 1 in the HRV Logger and deep breathing exercises with HRV4Biofeedback
You can find the full episode at this link
Thank you for having me and enjoy the podcast!
Below you can find a brief overview of the recent updates released for our heart rate variability tools, which we hope you have been enjoying
Thank you for providing your feedback and helping us make these tools better, and more useful to you
The latest HRV4Training update includes normal values in the Baseline page of the app for Pro users. Normal values are a representation of your historical data to help you better understand when variations in heart rate and HRV are outside your normal range, so that you can focus on important changes
You can try this visualization by logging in at HRV4T.com and starting your free trial or purchasing a Pro plan (use code NORMALISGOOD for a 25% discount). You can learn more about normal values, how we build them, other features in Pro and a few case studies and examples, at this link
We made quite a few improvements in our biofeedback app, in particular:
If you are already using HRV4Training and are interested in trying out these deep breathing techniques, you should be able to get HRV4Biofeeback with a little discount, by using the app bundle we put together for you
We are continuing our research on the effect of deep breathing on HRV, you can see an interesting follow-up of last week's article, here, where we look at the dose-response relationship between deep breathing and session HRV changes
The HRV Logger now includes heart rate as a feature. This way you can also see it averaged over the feature computation window (for example 2 minutes for DFA), which makes it easier to compare with other features
Bruce Rogers has been doing some comparisons of the HRV Logger and Kubios to compute DFA alpha 1, showing great agreement between the two for the Android version as well, check out some data, here

In this post, I look at the long-term effects of deep breathing on heart rate variability (HRV) as measured during deep breathing practice
While there is plenty of data and published literature on the acute effect of deep breathing on HRV (basically the difference between resting conditions and practice), we know much less about long-term effects. Looking at this data might help us better understand the relationship between deep breathing and long-term physiological changes (if any!)

What are normal values?
Normal values are a representation of your historical data. They are built using the past 60 days of data and help you better understand when variations in heart rate and HRV are outside your normal range, so that you can focus on important changes.
It is normal for heart rate and HRV to fluctuate quite a bit on a day to day basis, and it is key to be able to determine what changes are just part of normal day to day variability, and what changes are important.
For example, a daily score or baseline below normal values for HRV data, identifies a day or period of increased stress, something to be cautious about. On the other hand, if your score is just a little lower than yesterday, but still within normal day to day variability, that's typically nothing to worry about. HRV4Training makes it easy to differentiate between these two conditions.
Example of the new Baseline page for Pro users in HRV4Training. Data can also be color-coded using different annotations, to better contextualize your trends. In particular, we can see how both HRV and heart rate go outside normal values, clearly highlighting a period of higher stress
How do we build normal values?
Currently, we use the past 60 days of your measurements to build your normal values. As soon as you start using the app, HRV4Training will start learning what day to day changes are normal for you, and what changes are outside your normal range. As you gather more data, the app will get better at this job, eventually giving you the best estimate when having all the 60 days of data.
The normal values are always kept current, so that you are not stuck in older data, but at any given time, the most recent 60 days are always used. Over the years, we made a few adjustments to this method, but we believe that 60 days is a great trade-off between 1) not being too reactive, or adjusting your normal values too quickly for example using just the past few weeks of data 2) not getting stuck in very old measurements or in seasonal changes that might have little to do with your current status, which is what would happen when using more data. For heart rate and HRV, 60 days of data seems to be just right.
How do we use normal values?
Collecting high quality data using either our validated camera-measurement, a chest strap or an Oura ring, is only the first step. Once we have collected high quality data we need to be able to properly interpret it with respect to our own historical data.
On a daily basis HRV4Training already compares your daily score with your normal values, you can see this comparison and a visualuzation in the homepage of the app. Additionally, you can also see the color coded advice in the History page, which also relies on normal values.
The text in the homepage will also report if your score is within your normal values or not, as you can see below. What you aim for typically, is a stable physiological condition, so scores within normal on most days.
Making adjustments such as trying to reduce training load or other stressors when your HRV is below your normal values, can be an effective strategy to better balance stress, and improve outcomes in the longer term. This is also the approach used in HRV-guided training.
Homepage and History page in HRV4Training. The color coding and the bar at the bottom of the homepage highlight if your daily score is within your normal values
However, in the long term, once you have used the app for a few months, it can be helpful to visually look at the normal values band to better understand the full picture and analyze baseline deviations that highlight longer periods of higher stress. This is what you can do now in the app if you have a Pro account, similarly to what you already see on the web dashboard in the Overview page.
Additionally, the new visualization provides color-coded annotations so that it is a bit easier to contextualize stressors in the medium-long term. See for example here annotations related to the menstrual cycle or getting sick.
How can you try it?

The Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Logger app is finally available on both the Apple Store and Google Play, including DFA alpha 1 to analyze exercise intensity with respect to the aerobic threshold
What's the DFA alpha 1?
A non-linear HRV feature which can be used to estimate the aerobic threshold. In particular, when DFA alpha 1 is below 0.75, it means the intensity is higher than the aerobic threshold (so it defines "low intensity work", as typical in a polarized training program). If alpha 1 is above 0.75, the intensity is considered low, or below the aerobic threshold
How can you try it?
The HRV Logger app requires an external sensor, and for this specific analysis, we highly recommend a Polar H7 or 10 for its accuracy. Garmin dual straps should also work well.

Enjoy and stay aerobic
Blog post by professional ultrarunner and coach Daniel Rowland. You can learn more about Daniel on his website, and reach him on Twitter
I have always enjoyed my base training. This time of year is different to the rest of the season as it is about the simple goal of running more miles and getting fitter, rather than doing race-specific training. In this period, I like to build up my fitness from the starting point that I find myself at. Instead of planning backwards from goal races and setting milestones that I need to achieve in training, I can progress at a natural rate and in accordance with how quickly my body adapts to the training. I can also do consistent training without needing to taper or recover from races or to adjust for training camps or travel. For me this means that base training is natural, fun, and that I usually see great progress in my fitness and running performance.
During this period of training I place an emphasis on training below the aerobic threshold (AeT) or in zone 1 and zone 2 of a five-zone model. This is consistent with many training systems as it follows a polarized approach and incorporates the fundamentals of building an aerobic base.
There are two key challenges for performing this training effectively:
The first challenge of intensity control requires knowing the right intensity and then having the discipline to execute it in training. Traditionally, the AeT has been difficult to define. Unless the athlete goes to a laboratory for testing, the coach or athlete only have the "talk test" or heart rate-based estimates such the MAF heart rate which are not very accurate. The second challenge of assessing progress can be more easily addressed through using repeated routes or time trials, but this can be difficult depending on the weather and conditions over the winter.
This case study will explain how I have used the tools available from HRV4Training to address these two challenges and to show the progress from 60 days of base training.
Intensity control with Heart Rate Variability Logger
In January, Marco shared colab project  with a way to determine the AeT using DFA (1 alpha). I was interested in it because it addressed the first challenge I listed above. However, when I looked at the process it seemed a little too complicated for me and not worth the effort given how confident I felt about my current set of heart rate zones. Then Marco added the DFA (alpha 1) feature to the HRV Logger app which made it a much easier project and something that I could understand and do myself. I set out to "confirm" my AeT rather than to determine it because I felt so confident that I already knew what it was.
My process involved going for a run with two means of recording: my Polar OH1+ recording heart rate and transmitting that to my Polar Vantage M watch, and my Polar H10 recording heart rate and transmitting that to my phone which was recording using HRV Logger. I only looked at my current heart rate on my watch during the run and set an upper limit for heart rate during each session. When I returned home I reviewed the HRV Logger data to see how much time was below the DFA (1 alpha) threshold of 0.75. It took me multiple trials, each time reducing the upper limit of heart rate, until I reached a point where I did not exceed the DFA (1 alpha) threshold. You can see three of the tests in the following screenshots which were tests using heart rate upper limits of 135bpm, 130bpm, and 125bpm.
HRV Logger DFA (alpha 1) values from three runs. On the left, a run with a maximum heart rate target of 135bpm. 30% of the run was above AeT. In the middle, values from a run with a maximum heart rate target of 130bpm. 25% of the run was above AeT. On the right, values from a run with a maximum heart rate target of 125bpm. 0% of the run was above AeT.
I was surprised to see that my AeT was much lower than I had expected. This meant that my previous training was probably too hard and that I had an opportunity to train with better intensity control in this base period.
The steps I took above were my own simple method of determining AeT using HRV Logger. If you're interested in doing this yourself, I would recommend following this more thorough and more detailed practical guide from Marco .
There's a new independent validation out looking at the accuracy of commercially available HRV apps and sensors
Great to see the results for the lowest median error:
This is confirmation of the quality of the work we have been doing for the past 8 years, starting with early analysis of the accuracy, then our validation paper, and finally with this independently run study confirming the accuracy of the methods we have developed for both the camera based acquisition and artifact removal for RR intervals acquired from external sensors

The goal of training is to apply the right amount of training stimulus at the optimal rate to help an athlete improve their performance. Within those two variables of quantity and rate there are a huge range of possibilities for structuring and designing training. Even after considering the specific qualities of the athlete, the nature of their race, and the training that has worked well for them in the past, there are many options that could still help an athlete improve. How a coach structures and describes a training plan is the prescription of training. Once armed with the plan, it is up to the athlete to implement the plan and to do the training.
This post will look at a number of different ways to prescribe training, evaluating each method explaining when and for whom each is appropriate. The goal is to provide some ideas for planning and prescribing training for coaches and for self-coached athletes.
When the coach has delivered the plan it is equally important for the athlete to know how to implement and execute the plan. There can be uncertainty and tension for an athlete when they're not sure how best to apply a training plan. Should they always follow the plan no matter what? When should they be flexible and adjust the plan to suit their schedule? How much interaction and guidance is needed from the coach to make these decisions? When reviewing the different methods of prescribing training, this post will also cover how best an athlete should follow each plan.
A fixed microcycle
The simplest and probably the most common training plan consists of a microcycle of scheduled training sessions. The duration of the microcycle can vary from a week to 10 days to a fortnight, however, the most common duration is a week. The fixed aspect relates to having individual sessions allocated to specific days within the plan.
An example could be a week-long microcycle with the goal of completing three high-demand sessions: a set of short intervals, a tempo run, and a long run. The structure of this microcycle could be:
In this example and this type of training prescription every day is scheduled and the athlete knows exactly what to do on each day.
The athlete in this example following a fixed microcycle would decide to skip any high-demand sessions on the weekend based on the HRV feedback. There is no flexibility in the plan and there is likely to be a high-demand session early in the next week which they would need to be fresh for.
Another study just published using HRV4Training for data collection:
"These data suggest that daily HRV monitoring performed at home upon waking, show very strong agreement with those taken prior to practice" (within 1 hour)
Check out our earlier post, in which Sara Sherman discusses this study.
