Idiots Guide to Muscle Oxygen Monitors

Idiots Guide to Muscle Oxygen Monitors

Why heart rate monitors and power meters are not enough.

Several years ago power meters were only used by a few elite athletes. Now they are becoming more common, and nearly everyone uses a heart rate monitor.

But does it matter that the power meter doesn't show you what's going on inside your body (only what your body puts out) or that a heart rate monitor has some deficiencies (e.g. lags behind physical effort)?

Don't get me wrong -- these are both great tools for training and for managing your efforts, and like many athletes, I'm addicted to mine. However, for better insight into your performance, you need a combination of indicators. And that is where the muscle oygen monitors/sensors come in.

Here is a great article by kennakata of The Athletic Time Machine that explains the benefits of muscle oxygenation and how to make it work for you.
