Default The Making of an Olympian

http://www.popsci.com/entertainment-...aking-olympian

Just thought I'd pass this along for discussion. I typically scoff at heart monitors considering everytime I've used one I've gone way over my supposed max heart rate. However, I could see using one if it was just to measure bio-feedback. What I really liked was the idea of reevaluating training every 24 hours instead of just following a periodized training schedule. Granted the actual training would have to match your chosen event, but I think training according to body response is a step in the right direction.

That was a pretty interesting article I'm curious to see what will come out of it in the future and how these tools will evolve.

Thanks.

This could be huge for the CF community that is willing to utilize it...
