What is the Wild Readiness Score?
The Wild readiness score gives you a daily indication of your capacity to perform at your best. This then allows you to go into any training that day well informed. Over time, it’ll help you understand how your female physiology across cycles contributes to your ability to perform, train, recover and adapt, allowing you to work with, and not against, your own physiology.
You might use a wearable giving you your body temperature and resting heart rate. Today, if your temperature or resting heart rate go up, it may tell you that something is wrong, when really - you may just be ovulating. Wild AI is the first of its kind - reading your female data as it should, and looking at what those variations mean, depending on your life stage and hormonal variation. The Wild readiness score reads your data as a woman, while other apps may read you as a man, what we refer to as ‘men-tech’!
Why did we create a Readiness Score?
Along with Dr Stacy Sims, we’ve put together years of research on how female physiology impacts athletic performance. But as we’ve all probably heard, the research can be messy, and it’s really important to take an individual approach in how best to put the research into practise and apply these recommendations.
We know that every woman is different. We also know that variation exists within the same women. When we couple these factors together, it’s essential that we start considering the individual when it comes to female performance and training. Therefore, we developed the Wild readiness score to allow you to personalise your performance and training based on your own unique physiology.
What does my Wild Readiness Score mean?
The readiness score takes into account your objective metrics like your resting heart rate, your subjective inputs such as your symptoms and lifestyle, and how hard you have trained recently. It then calculates a percentage score between 0 and 100% so that you know when you’re ready to train hard, or when to prioritise recovery. Over time you can look at how your readiness score changes across phases and life stages.
Low (0 to 33%): A low score indicates that your readiness to take on training is poor. It’s suggested that you consider being conservative and keeping your intensity low to promote recovery.
Moderate (34 to 66%): This is your average readiness. You might’ve logged some symptoms and previous training sessions might be affecting you, but not enough to move your readiness away from your typical average.
High (67 to 100%): A high score indicates that you’re ready to train HARD today and perform well whilst doing so!
