Sports Science Update from:
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and The Testosterone/ Cortisol Ratio
Testing cortisol requires multiple saliva tests during the day, making it a very cumbersome and time-consuming process. Moreover, some recent studies with rugby players suggest that the effectiveness of cortisol testing is limited. A better approach for most athletes is combining HRV testing with mobile solutions and comprehensive blood testing. InsideTracker is currently analyzing season data to create a better early warning system for coaches trying to reduce injuries and prevent overtraining. If you are a current InsideTracker customer who wants to get the full benefit from data you are collecting please contact us for research and solutions with the ithlete and other mobile devices.
Tensiomyography (TMG) and Athlete Profiling
Estimating fiber composition used to require extremely invasive muscle biopsies, but now TMG allows teams and organizations to test an athlete’s entire body to build a highly granular muscle profile. In addition to fiber testing, users can drill down to more diagnostic measurements. InsideTracker’s blood analysis can calibrate current muscular fiber status with Hemoglobin and testosterone levels. If you are looking at ways to create more precision in your training plan, TMG screening is a great option.
