BSTRACT Strength training is a critical exercise stimulus for inducing changes in muscular strength, size and power (6). Recently, linear position transducers have gained in popularity as a means to monitor velocity in strength training exercises. The measurement error of such devices has been shown to be low and both relative and absolute reliability have been shown to be acceptable (2, 7, 11). The purpose of this article is to provide the overview and benefits of monitoring movement velocity…

The use of velocity-based training in strength and power training-A systematic review
Background: The intensity or load of a strength training exercise is commonly considered to be the most important factor contributing to muscular strength and power. Traditionally in strength
The Role of Velocity Based Training in the Strength Periodization for Modern Athletes
The authors focus in particular on the level of effort of resistance training defined by velocity; how the loss of velocity correlates with the degree of fatigue and how it can be used to enhance the performance of competitive athletes.
Validation of Velocity Measuring Devices in Velocity Based Strength Training
Abstract To control and monitor strength training with a barbell various systems are on the consumer market. They provide the user with information regarding velocity, acceleration and trajectory of
Load-velocity relationship of the deadlift exercise
This finding provides an alternative to the demanding, time-consuming and interfering 1RM tests, and allows the use of the deadlift exercise following the VBT principles.
Effects of Velocity-Based Training on Strength and Power in Elite Athletes—A Systematic Review
The analyzed studies suggest that applying velocity losses of 10–20% can help induce neuromuscular adaptations and reduce neuromUScular fatigue, and should be used by sport practitioners to help keep athletes accountable for their performance.
Instrument, Analysis, and Coaching Considerations with Velocity-Based Training
GymAware was found to be valid across the widest range of velocities, followed by Tendo, and PUSH was not valid, indicating large variability in load-velocity profiles and maximum velocity capabilities between athletes.
Using Velocity to Predict the Maximum Dynamic Strength in the Power Clean
The load-velocity profile is not an acceptable tool for monitoring power clean strength and should not be used for athlete preparation, according to the results of this study.
Using Load-Velocity Relationships to Quantify Training-Induced Fatigue
Results suggest that load-velocity–based 1RM predictions are not accurate enough to be used for daily training load prescription, as has been previously suggested, but may be useful to indicate general fluctuations in performance potential, particularly if used in conjunction with other common monitoring methods.
Concurrent Validity of Field-Based Diagnostic Technology Monitoring Movement Velocity in Powerlifting Exercises.
Investigation of the validity of different technologies used to determine movement velocity in resistance training found practitioners who require negligible measurement error in their assessment of movement velocity should use linear position transducers over inertial sensors.


The Importance of Movement Velocity as a Measure to Control Resistance Training Intensity
The aim of this paper was to discuss the importance of movement velocity concerning control training intensity using models of fatigue that analyze the reduction in mechanical variables such as force, velocity and power output over repeated dynamic contractions in actual training or competition settings.
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.
A dynamometer for evaluation of dynamic muscle work
Given the accuracy of the ergometer, the high reliability found between 2 days of measurements, and the specificity of the results it is suggested that the dynamic dynamometer would be suitable for evaluation of athletes performing specific skills.
Force‐Velocity Analysis of Strength‐Training Techniques and Load: Implications for Training Strategy and Research
The force-velocity response of the neuromuscular system to a variety of concentric only, stretch-shorten cycle, and ballistic bench press movements is investigated and suggestions were made as to how these findings may be applied to improve strength, power, and functional performance.
Reliability of Performance Velocity for Jump Squats under Feedback and Nonfeedback Conditions
It was concluded that there is approximately a 50–50 probability that the provision of feedback was beneficial to the performance in the squat jump over multiple sessions and it is suggested that this has the potential for increasing transference to on-field performance or at the very least improving the mechanical variable of interest.
Effect of Instantaneous Performance Feedback During 6 Weeks of Velocity-Based Resistance Training on Sport-Specific Performance Tests
Improvements in the performance of sport-specific tests are suggested, suggesting the potential for greater adaptation and larger training effects, and the provision of feedback may also be used in applications around performance targets and thresholds during training.
Velocity loss as an indicator of neuromuscular fatigue during resistance training.
The high correlations found between mechanical (velocity and countermovement jump height losses) and metabolic (lactate, ammonia) measures of fatigue support the validity of using velocity loss to objectively quantify neuromuscular fatigue during resistance training.
Validity of a Commercial Linear Encoder to Estimate Bench Press 1 RM from the Force-Velocity Relationship.
It was concluded that 1 RM estimated from the force-velocity relationship was a good measure for monitoring training induced adaptations, but also that it was not accurate enough to prescribe training intensities.
Possible stimuli for strength and power adaptation: acute mechanical responses.
It is contended that strength and power research needs to adopt a set kinematic and kinetic analysis to improve the understanding of how to optimise strength andPower.
Intended rather than actual movement velocity determines velocity-specific training response.
The results suggest that the principal stimuli for the high-velocity training response are the repeated attempts to perform ballistic contractions and the high rate of force development of the ensuing contraction.
