WHOOP: Improve your recovery skills
For coaches, its long been difficult to objectively track an athlete’s rest and recovery. Proper recovery is necessary for peak performance. The WHOOP technology tracks and analyzes a swimmer’s daily Strain, Recovery, and Sleep. Best of all, it’s validated by science. More sleep has been shown to correlate with faster swimming performance.
“With WHOOP, I can actually score my recovery every night, so I now know the things I’m doing during the day that affects my sleep and recovery.” – Connor Jaeger
The WHOOP Strap slips on to a swimmer’s wrist and collects data from underneath sensors 24/7. It collects over 100MB of data on an athlete per day that is displayed in the WHOOP app. The WHOOP strap collects heart rate, heart rate variability, ambient temperature, and motion.
Your swimmers aren’t just swimmers for two or three hours a day. They are swimmers 24 hours a day. Are poor sleep skills negating all the hard work in the pool? WHOOP’s Sleep Coach helps optimize an athlete’s sleep schedule.
