In this episode, Jason and I will dive in deeper into things like what gadgets you should be using to measure your heart rate variability, how to evaluate these gadgets, and why some of the more popular ones may not be the best source for getting the most accurate HRV data. We will also talk about something that has surfaced recently and is called resonant breathing frequency and why I am obsessed with this ever since I heard about it. And finally, Jason explains the most beneficial aspects and features of the Elite HRV app and how accessible they are to you.
Jason Moore is the Director and Instructor of National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) accredited coursework on Heart Rate Variability (HRV). Founder of Elite HRV, the most widely used free HRV analysis tool.
Jason holds a Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from Texas A&M University and has been invited to speak about his work at many conferences and venues.
Over the past 5 years, he has researched and used HRV technology through active collaboration with professional athletes, doctors, first responders, and thousands of health and performance seekers. Via this network, he is continuously exposed to the latest scientific research and methods for making the best use of HRV and other biomarkers.
Prior to specializing in Heart Rate Variability, Jason designed and implemented large scale data analysis systems for the Oil and Gas industry, focusing on making complex data actionable.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
