Episode 199: Val Nasedkin - Learning, HRV, and Windows of Trainability

This episodes guest is Val Nasedkin of Omegawave

Val Nasedkin is the Co-Founder & Vice President of Business Development for Omegawave, a company that merges the fields of neurology, cardiology, and exercise physiology with mobile computer technology. Using EKG, HRV, and DC potential measurements, Omegawave devices offer sports-specific outputs on readiness to train and guidance for achieving specific physiological adaptations. Their technology has been used by multiple Olympic Federations; premier soccer teams such as FC Barcelona; teams from the NFL, MLS and NHL; and various other leading sports organizations.

As a former elite athlete and coach with decades of experience testing elite athletes, Val learned that the type, volume, and intensity of the training load should not be the primary focus, but rather the timing of when the load is applied. 

Note - for some reason my Mic was not connected up properly for this interview but the audio is still good enough, and Val is crystal clear. I am a little low. 

On this episode Val and I discuss:

  • Val's background
  • I ask Val why did he move to America
  • I ask Val for his biggest influences 
  • I ask Val what are the good and not so good things that he currently see's with the sports preparation profession, and what solutions would he offer for the not so good things that he see's
  • I ask Val what is more important - Technical, Tactical, Psychological, Physical?
  • I ask Val what technology in the future could help us measure skill acquisition and learning?
  • I ask Val how can we as coaches improve our terminology to develop our communication?
  • Val shares with us his thoughts on Heart Rate Variability 
  • I ask Val to discuss the Windows of Trainability 
  • I ask Val what have been the biggest lessons he has learned in his career?
  • I ask Val how does his learn?
  • I ask Val for his top and current book recommendations
  • I ask Val what is one thing he does everyday that is essential to each day?
  • I ask Val for his top life advice?
  • I ask Val what was it like to grow up in the former Soviet Union?
  • I ask Val, if he had only 1 year left on planet Earth - how would he spend that year and why?
  • I ask Val, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB
