WHOOP recovery device

Apparently this device wearable on the wrist tracks how well you recover after workouts and pretty much optimizes your training so you aren't over- or undertraining. Supposedly bad recovery also seriously affects shooting percentage in bball players.

There seems to be a flood of these coming onto the market at the moment.  I've seen Joel Jamieson is coming out with one as well and have seen a couple others floating around.

How accurate do you think they'll be? I know if they're anything like the Garmin calculations atm they could be woefully inaccurate.

If they can take accurate body temp and HR .. especially when waking .. maybe they can work for judging CNS recovery. Activity tracking will tell you how you've been active so those things can be used to predict how 'recovered' you are .. probably ..

Here's the one I was referring to from Joel Jamieson

Also, an article of his on training for recovery

I wonder if it's better than stopwatch double click, lol!

For the most part, now days, I use walking to judge my CNS. It's become very easy for me to tell how fatigued I am, simply by seeing my pace per effort during a slightly hard fast walk. It's pretty incredible IMHO.

At my current level, if i'm experiencing significant fatigue (physical or CNS), it's hard for me to hit low to mid 14:XX pace (which is basically 4-4.1 mph or so. When i'm feeling fresh & my best, I can easily hit 12:XX pace, which is closer to 4.6-5 mph.

For it to be accurate, I need at least 1 warmup mile, then a solid effort for the 2nd mile. So ~30 minutes to figure out how fresh I am. :D

I've been so fatigued (physical + CNS) that it was hard for me to get under 16:XX-17:XX min/mi etc.

If I was using this as an AREG tool, i'd do it in the morning then base my training off of it.

You going to try any of these apps?

EDIT: Also, that moment when the app tells you that you aren't ready, but you feel ready as fu*k.. has to be a weird moment. LMFAO.
