Even soccer teams are using Heart Rate Monitors

By Jennifer Sage On November 23, 2011 Under Heart Rate Training

Here is an interesting article in the New York Times about the UCONN Soccer Team which uses heart rate monitors to help evaluate what they call the “training load” of their players. What I found most interesting about this article is the discussion that the heart rate responses that they paid the most attention to were those that showed their players were overly fatigued or hadn’t recovered enough from a previous workout. This is right in line with the discussion that Dr. Jennifer Klau and I had about how best to use heart rate training in your own classes.
