Easy-to-interpret Scores

QRT scores are classified into four categories that describe recovery quality.

  • 0-30 Poor
  • 30-70 Moderate
  • 70-90 Good
  • 90-100 Excellent

In addition to making results easy to communicate, these categories are used to indicate fatigue accumulation over time. The number of days between “good recovery” scores are tracked and reported with color coded warning signals.

Green: Good recovery within 7 days
Yellow: Good recovery within 14 days
Red: Good recovery more than 14 days ago



Why does it work?

The Firstbeat QRT score is an advanced metric derived from analysis of heart rate and heart rate variability which allows indirect assessment of the parasympathetic nervous system through vagal activity.  Variation in individual physiology and dynamic recovery patterns are accounted for by adaptively scaling QRT scores based on average and standard deviation of each athlete’s personal measurement history.
