If you’re wearing the WHOOP Strap 3.0, check your WHOOP strain at the end of your workout. Prioritize your hydration and sleep, then check your WHOOP recovery metrics again in the morning. Based on your recovery—determined by heart rate variability, resting heart rate, and sleep quantity and quality—WHOOP will give you a recovery percentage that suggests your ability to perform at your peak. If your exertion isn’t balanced out by recovery, it’ll recommend you take it easier the following day until you can work at optimal levels again. Heed their advice to prevent overtraining.
