This review examines the influence on heart rate variability (HRV) indices in athletes from training status, different types of exercise training, sex and ageing, presented from both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. The predictability of HRV in over-training, athletic condition and athletic performance is also included. Finally, some recommendations concerning the application of HRV methods in athletes are made.The cardiovascular system is mostly controlled by autonomic regulation… Expand

TLDR
A comprehensive assessment of investigations concerning the interrelation between HRV and ANS is offered, and how the application of HRV to physical exercise may play a role in sports physiology is examined. Expand
The effect of different types of sports on resting heart rate variability and autonomic nervous system balance
TLDR
The results of this study point towards higher fitness levels, in terms of autonomic control of cardiac function in participants involved in aerobic-demanding sports activities, and also in the later, postparticipation years are recommended. Expand
Five minute recordings of heart rate variability in physically active students : reliability and gender characteristics.
Introduction Heart rate variability (HRV) is regarded as a useful, non-invasive method for investigating the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Over the past decade there has been an increase in theExpand
Characterization of heart rate variability and baroreflex sensitivity in sedentary individuals and male athletes
Introduction: The capacity to vary the heart rate represents important physiologic role in the daily life. The variations of the RR intervals is dependent of biological modulators as the autonomicExpand
Heart rate variability to monitor performance in elite athletes: Criticalities and avoidable pitfalls.
TLDR
Caution must be payed when assessing HRV with non-ECG wearable devices and ensuring that respiratory rate is higher than 10 breath/min are both prerequisites for a more reliable analysis of HRV particularly in athletes. Expand
[Heart rate variability analysis in sports].
TLDR
Analysis of the time and/or frequency power domain of the heart rate variance is expected to have diagnostic value in physiological and pathological situations as adaptation to training, overtraining, heart disease etc. Expand
Influence of Autonomic Control on the Specific Intermittent Performance of Judo Athletes
TLDR
Heart rate variability (HRV) is related to intermittent judo performance; however, it cannot differentiate between judokas at different levels of performance. Expand
Heart rate variability in trotters during different training periods.
TLDR
Heart rate variability can be used to monitor the cardiovascular responses to training in horses but confirmatory measures may also be required in addition to HRV to exclude other possible causes of underperformance. Expand
Influence of Running Stride Frequency in Heart Rate Variability Analysis During Treadmill Exercise Testing
TLDR
The objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that a component centered at the running stride frequency appears in the HRV of subjects during maximal treadmill exercise testing, and to study its influence in the interpretation of the low-frequency and high-frequency components of HRV during exercise.

TLDR

Heart rate variability in athletes: relationship with central and peripheral performance.
TLDR
Improved measures of both peripheral and central work capacities were associated with a reduction of low-frequency HRV in the tilted position, suggesting that the ability to further improve VO(2max) with training in these already fit subjects seemed to depend on their average levels of these HRV measures. Expand
Spectral analysis of heart rate variability in athletes.
TLDR
Power spectrum pattern of the heart rate variability and assessment of the relative contributions of sympathetic and parasympathetic cardiac nervous system control in athletes was characterized and differences between groups were significant. Expand
The power spectral analysis of heart rate variability in athletes during dynamic exercise—Part I
TLDR
Although both groups showed similar trends in heart rate (HR) at all stages of protocols, HR in athletes was significantly lower than that in nonathletes during rest and postexercise, indicating that vagal activity was enhanced by the adaptive changes in neural regulation produced by long‐term physical training. Expand
Effects of aerobic exercise training on 24 hr profile of heart rate variability in female athletes.
TLDR
Findings of the relative night-time increase in LF and the decrease in the day-night difference in time domain indexes of heart rate variability suggest that, in young female athletes, exercise training is able to induce an increase in the sympathetic modulation of the sinus node which may coexist with signs of relatively reduced, or unaffected, vagal modulation. Expand
Autonomic differences between athletes and nonathletes: spectral analysis approach.
TLDR
Results indicate that endurance training results in the enhanced vagal activities in athletes, which may contribute in part to the resting bradycardia. Expand
Effect of long term physical training on heart rate variability
TLDR
Results show that regular physical training enhances the synchronization between heart rate and respiratory frequency, with a more pronounced effect at a higher age, infer that exercising may be of value in the modification of cardiac autonomic activity in cardiac patients. Expand
Supine and standing sympathovagal balance in athletes and controls
TLDR
The finding that pNN50 and LF, but not SD and CV, differed between the athletes and the controls would seem to demonstrate that the differences in autonomic control are reflected in the quality (balance between slow and fast heart rate fluctuations) rather than in the quantity of heart rate variability. Expand
Exercise training and heart rate variability in older people.
TLDR
Regular physical activity increases HRV (specifically in the very low and low frequency components) in older subjects, demonstrating that physical training may be an effective means to modify positively a factor that is associated with increased incidence of cardiac events. Expand
Effect of athletic training on heart rate variability.
TLDR
The data suggest that frequency domain analysis of heart rate variability may not be an accurate indicator of cardiac vagal tone in chronically trained endurance athletes and activity level may have to be considered when usingHeart rate variability to carry out prognostic stratification in patients with heart disease. Expand
Relation between heart rate variability and training load in middle-distance runners.
TLDR
This study confirmed that heavy training shifted the cardiac autonomic balance toward a predominance of the sympathetic over the parasympathetic drive, and heart rate variability appeared to be a better tool than resting heart rate to evaluate cumulated physical fatigue, as it magnified the induced changes in autonomic nervous system activity.
