Introducing the Optimal Zone

Are you looking for a way to improve your HRV biofeedback training? Look no further than the Optimal Zone feature in the Optimal HRV app. This feature provides feedback on the efficiency of your training, letting you know if you're on the right track or if you need to make adjustments.

The Optimal Zone is determined by measuring low-frequency power, which indicates where the heart rate rhythm is concentrated. It's essential to gather sufficient data (around 60 seconds) to determine the concentration of the heart rate rhythm accurately.


Staying in the Optimal Zone means that you are in a state of optimal self-regulation. This can feel different for different people, ranging from feeling more relaxed to feeling more focused and alert.


It's important to note that the Optimal Zone is not meant to be maintained all the time. It is a training tool that should be used during dedicated practice sessions. Breathing at the resonance frequency all the time is not recommended, as it can disrupt the natural variability of the heart rate signal.


The Optimal Zone is a metric that can be tracked over time to monitor progress and improvement. Increasing the percentage of time spent in the Optimal Zone and increasing the total low-frequency power are indicators of improved training efficiency.


Try out the Optimal Zone feature in the Optimal HRV app today and take your HRV biofeedback training to the next level!
