I had a training session today at university with the Firstbeat Bodyguard, a sophisticated device I will be using to track activity and various health markers as I embark on my month long Whole Body Cryotherapy experiment.
The equipment is also designed to assess how appropriate my diet and lifestyle is for my specific requirements alongside additional monitoring of sleep and how well I recover from personalised workouts throughout the duration of the experiment. It will be particularly interesting for me to assess just how much of my energy expenditure in each 24 hour period comes from fat and how this varies over the course of the day.
I am looking forward to sharing more as I progress on this journey of discovery.
Some examples of data collection:
