6 Products That Will Help You Bounce Back From a Workout Hiatus
1. WHOOP 3.0 Strap
Based on the intensity of your workouts and daily stress levels (measured by heart rate variability), WHOOP estimates how much sleep you should get to reach peak performance the next day. Its Strain Coach feature uses similar data to determine your readiness to perform while training— giving you the green light to go all-out, or recommending you dial it down for the day.
