When working with athletes, aim for 25–35 peak-to-trough HRV. When setting goals for HRV training, a good rule of thumb is to raise the max–min HRV as much as possible. Another way to measure HRV is by measuring SDNN, the standard deviation (square root of variance) of NN (beat-to-beat) intervals over a certain period of time. We do have good norms for SDNN measures, with 50 ms being the cutoff for healthy HRV. SDNN of below 50 ms is low, while SDNN above 50 ms is in the healthy range. The problem with SDNN is that it is harder to use clinically (see Chapter 9 on HRV for more details).
