Dr. Mike T. Nelson is one of the foremost experts on exercise physiology and biomechanics. In this interview, he illuminates a concept that has been gaining traction in endurance and hybrid athlete circles: heart rate variability.

What is HRV? How can you measure it, and why does it matter in your training and recovery? How can you analyze your training and the effect, positive or negative, that it has on your heart? All of these questions and more are addressed in this in-depth talk!
