The Omegawave is an excellent way to monitor training—as a matter of fact, it is one of the few methods that really makes sense, since it takes multiple physiological systems into account. Omegawave can also be used to test recovery measures. There is, first of all, the natural recovery that comes purely as a function … Read moreMapping & Accelerating Recovery with Omegawave: HRV (Part 1)
Let me try to explain some of the more basic concepts about biological regulation as it relates to adaptation and the use of Omegawave. The body is a dynamic system, consisting of many subsystems at different levels. This includes various organs and physiological systems, such as the cardiorespiratory system, neuromuscular system, endocrine system (glands) and … Read moreRegulation & Adaptation
There is no doubt: the brain is the dominant performance organ of the athlete. And the brain, of course, consists of many different levels and parts. In sports, a number of tests have been developed for everything below the neck: muscle biopsies, EKG, blood panels, etc. But all of these tell us very little about … Read moreTesting The Athlete’s Brain
Metabolic systems are necessary for the supply of energy to all organs. In sport and exercise, we are mainly interested in the metabolic systems of the skeletal muscle. There are two important systems: aerobic and anaerobic. If there is a continuous and sufficient supply of oxygen, the aerobic is our main energy provider. This is the system … Read moreMetabolic Systems: Understanding the Essentials
HRV heart rate variability measurements seem to have become the big thing in training for fitness or performance right now. It can be used as a great tool, no doubts. It will give us information about yes… about what? As the name indicates it can supply us with valuable information about the status of the cardiac … Read moreHRV, What Could It Mean To Me?
The essence of athlete management is adjusting the daily training load to the actual status of the athlete. This can hardly be any news for us coaches. We know the daily training load, because that is what we put on paper; our training program over which we have total control. But the missing link is … Read moreAthlete Assessment: From Subjective To Objective
When I started to work with the Omegawave technology, I understood that this is the tool, the holy grail, that we as coaches have been waiting for. One of the pillars of success in sports is the optimisation of the training of our athletes or players. Optimisation simply means: the adjustment of the daily training load (the … Read moreOmegawave: A Step Towards The Holy Grail In Sports Training
