Anybody Use a Whoop to Guide Training and Recovery?

I recently started using a Whoop wearable to guide training and recovery. I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks, long enough for it’s algos to adjust to my personal metrics. It uses the the same language as Xert to define workouts…strain stress etc. which is nice. It also quantifies recovery using HRV and sleep. But it seems to skew to much greater workloads to achieve what it considers an appropriate accumulation of strain in relation to how recovered I am. Xert recommends recovery rides while Whoop recommends rides at a length and intensity that seems stupid hard. As an example last night’s workout Xert rated Tough 4stars with a difficulty of around 130 for the final set of intervals. Whoop rated it a 6.5 on a scale of 21 ```
basically a recovery effort. I see great promise with combining both tools in my training. I’m looking to see if anyone else has some insights.

Try posting this on Facebook. Lots of great dialogue there.
