Autonomic Nervous System Readiness


The autonomic nervous system is critical to regulate our bodies.  In this post we’ll discuss ways to examine autonomic system readiness in our swimmers.  Think of these as systems checks on your “race car” (aka, swimmer’s body) before you crank up the engine.  There are several medically accepted ways to assess autonomic nervous system health, but many are not practical for the common athletic setting, let alone a pool deck.  Fortunately, there are a few reliable methods that can fit within a reasonable budget and can accommodate swim team logistics.
