Can’t answer your question, but interesting tidbit I heard recently was there’s a theory that heart rate drift isn’t what people think and might just be your body’s way to thermoregulate itself. So, even if heart rate drifts up, stroke volume goes down, so your overall cardiac output is in fact staying the same…
Hello, many times I see athletes complete a heart rate drift and say they felt perfectly fine throughout the test, but when we look at the data they have drifted sometimes up to 10%. It seems like their is a disconnect between their effort perception and whats actually going on cardiovascularly. If you train solely on RPE how do you manage setting workouts based upon this metric if you know there is a disconnect between effort perception and HR.
Thanks in advance!
