How to Monitor Your Waking Heart Rate from your Pentathlon Training
One way to monitor the effectiveness of your pentathlon training is to measure your waking heart-rate each day. The waking heart-rate can act as a physiological stress response indicator from the previous days pentathlon training sessions. By counting the bpm difference from your current waking heart-rate compared to your past 14-day average you can see if you are under or over training from a physiological perspective.
Generally 6 bpm higher or lower compared to your average waking heart rate can either indicate if your previous days pentathlon workouts were below normal, normal, or above normal. Remember to have an accurate reading of your overall stress responses from the previous days pentathlon workouts. You should include taking a psychological stress test, such as, the peer-reviewed Daily Analysis of Life Demands For Athletes (DALDA).
