What Data Tells Us About Optimal Performance, According to WHOOP Founder Will Ahmed

Should you eat before you go to bed? What’s the best time to train hard? What’s the simplest way to improve sleep? Can respiration rate changes identify COVID-19?

Three pillars — strain, recovery, and sleep — are vital to peak performance, according to WHOOP founder Will Ahmed. We are all trying to become the healthiest versions of ourselves, yet there are some physiological indicators that can’t necessarily be felt. They can, however, be measured.

In fact, groundbreaking data from WHOOP tracking enabled a professional golfer to identify COVID-19 before he had any known symptoms. Information is power, and on this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, Ahmed shares data patterns gleaned from hundreds of thousands of users, and you can implement them today. Measurements can motivate!
