Most wearables measure cardiovascular load based on heart rate, but if you lift weights or strength train regularly, you know many wearables fail to capture the true impact of those sessions — until now. WHOOP just released Strength Trainer, a new feature that allows you to track your weights, reps, and sets to quantify muscular load, or the stress you are putting on your muscles, joints, and tissues. WHOOP Founder and CEO Will Ahmed is joined by WHOOP Chief Technology Officer Jaime Waydo to share more on this revolutionary new feature, including how it was developed, what the R&D process was like, how it changes Strain scores, and the impact it has on your recovery and training recommendations.
