This week, we have a coaching call EC hosted recently with a listener named Nate. They talk about the limitations of wearable devices in tracking fitness & recovery and the importance of relying on performance and individual experience as indicators of training status.

Topics include:

• Understanding overtraining, over reaching, and peaking

• Measuring recovery via biomarkers like heart-rate variability, resting heart rate, and oxygen saturation

• When assessing progress, consider factors beyond wearable metrics, such as sleep quality and overall well-being.

• Understand and respect one’s own limits in training and performance.

• Take rest periods and listen to the body’s signals for optimal fitness.

• Prioritize consistency in training, rest, and nutrition for long-term fitness goals.
