ABSTRACT This study compared the effects of dictating load using individual (ILVP) or group (GLVP) load-velocity profiles on lower-body strength and power. Nineteen trained males (23.6 ± 3.7 years) completed a back squat one-repetition maximum (1-RM), load-velocity profiling (LVP), and countermovement (CMJ), static-squat (SSJ) and standing-broad (SBJ) jump tests before and after 6 weeks of resistance training. Participants were randomly assigned to an ILVP, or GLVP intervention with intra… 

Load–Velocity Relationship to Estimate the One-Repetition Maximum in the Hexagonal Bar Deadlift Exercise in Women

In this study, we examined the load–velocity relationship in the hexagonal bar deadlift exercise in women. Twenty-seven resistance-trained women were recruited. Participants performed a progressive

Use of Machine-Learning and Load–Velocity Profiling to Estimate 1-Repetition Maximums for Two Variations of the Bench-Press Exercise

It is demonstrated that bench-press 1RM can be accurately estimated from load–velocity data derived from submaximal loads and without MVT, and results showed that multilinear regression can be used to estimate bench- press 1RM.

Effects of Four Different Velocity-Based Training Programming Models on Strength Gains and Physical Performance.

It is suggested that different VBT programming models induced similar physical performance gains in moderately strength-trained subjects.

The Effect of Load and Volume Autoregulation on Muscular Strength and Hypertrophy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

When sets and relative intensity were equated, velocity loss thresholds’≤ 25% were superior for promoting strength possibly by minimizing acute neuromuscular fatigue while maximizing chronic neuromUScular adaptations, whereas velocity loss threshold’s’> 20–25%were superior for promotion hypertrophy by accumulating greater relative volume.

Rating of Perceived Exertion and Velocity Relationships Among Trained Males and Females in the Front Squat and Hexagonal Bar Deadlift.

Results indicate that well-trained males and females can gauge intraset RPE accurately during moderate repetition sets on the front squat and HHBD.

“Is it a slow day or a go day?”: The perceptions and applications of velocity-based training within elite strength and conditioning

Velocity-based training (VBT) is a contemporary prescriptive, programming, and testing tool commonly utilised in strength and conditioning (S&C). Over recent years, there has been an influx of

The Maximum Flywheel Load: A Novel Index to Monitor Loading Intensity of Flywheel Devices

MFL can be easily computed using a logarithmic model between the mean angular acceleration and moment of inertia to characterize the maximum theoretical loading intensity in the flywheel squat.



Movement velocity as a measure of loading intensity in resistance training.

An inextricable relationship between relative load and MPV in the BP that makes it possible to evaluate maximal strength without the need to perform a 1RM test, or test of maximum number of repetitions to failure (XRM); determine the %1RM that is being used as soon as the first repetition with any given load is performed.

Comparison of the Effects of Velocity-Based Training Methods and Traditional 1RM-Percent-Based Training Prescription on Acute Kinetic and Kinematic Variables.

PURPOSE To compare kinetic and kinematic data from 3 different velocity-based training sessions and a 1-repetition-maximum (1RM)-percent-based training (PBT) session using full-depth, free-weight

The Reliability of Individualized Load-Velocity Profiles.

PV, MPV, and MV are reliable and can be utilized to develop LVPs using linear regression and employed as a method for adjusting sessional training loads according to daily readiness.

RPE vs. Percentage 1RM Loading in Periodized Programs Matched for Sets and Repetitions

Both loading-types are effective, however, RPE-based loading may provide a small 1RM strength advantage in a majority of individuals, and 1RMG had a strength advantage of the same magnitude, and 18, 29, and 22% chances, respectively of trivial differences between groups.

Effects of velocity loss during resistance training on athletic performance, strength gains and muscle adaptations

The progressive accumulation of muscle fatigue as indicated by a more pronounced repetition velocity loss appears as an important variable in the configuration of the resistance exercise stimulus as it influences functional and structural neuromuscular adaptations.

Estimation of Relative Load From Bar Velocity in the Full Back Squat Exercise

Provided that repetitions are performed at maximal intended velocity, a good estimation of load can be obtained from mean velocity as soon as the first repetition is completed and allows implementing a velocity-based resistance training approach.

Validity and Reliability of the Load-Velocity Relationship to Predict the One-Repetition Maximum in Deadlift

Although 1RM predictions showed high reliability, they all overestimated the actual 1RM, which was stable between sessions, and it is not recommended to apply the prediction models used in this study to compute daily 1RMs.


The present study indicated that, within typical hypertrophic strength-training protocols used in the present study, the length of the recovery times between the sets did not have an influence on the magnitude of acute hormonal and neuromuscular responses or long-term training adaptations in muscle strength and mass in previously strength-trained men.

Mean Velocity vs. Mean Propulsive Velocity vs. Peak Velocity: Which Variable Determines Bench Press Relative Load With Higher Reliability?

Results suggest that the MV could be the most appropriate variable for monitoring the relative load in the BPT exercise performed in a Smith machine.
