Heart rate recovery (HRR) is the rate at which the heart rate returns to baseline after a period of exercise.HRR is a marker of autonomic function and a predictor of cardiovascular fitness in healthy subjects and inthose with cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, HRR has been proposed as a marker of training status inathletes. Our aim was to perform a review of studies that evaluated HRR after exercise in trained anduntrained healthy subjects and assessed its relationship with training status. Several studies suggest that theassessing of HRR after exercise may be useful to distinguish trained from untrained individuals and toestablish an athlete’s state of training. However, standardization of measuring is required to comparebetween individuals.
