Velocity-based training (VBT) is a contemporary method of resistance training that enables accurate and objective prescription of resistance training intensities and volumes. This review provides an applied framework for the theory and application of VBT. Specifically, this review gives detail on how to: use velocity to provide objective feedback, estimate strength, develop load-velocity profiles for accurate load prescription, and how to use statistics to monitor velocity. Furthermore, a… Expand
Validity and Effects of Placement of Velocity-Based Training Devices
TLDR
This study assessed the validity of several mobile and one stationary VBT device for measuring mean and peak concentric barbell velocity over a range of velocities and exercises, including low- and high-velocity, ballistic and non-ballistic, and plyometric andNon-plyometric movements, to quantify the isolated effect of device attachment point on measurement validity.

Differences between adjusted vs. non-adjusted loads in velocity-based training: consequences for strength training control and programming
TLDR
Load adjustment based on movement velocity is a useful way to control for highly individualised responses to training and improve the implementation of RT programs. Expand
The Implementation of Velocity-Based Training Paradigm for Team Sports: Framework, Technologies, Practical Recommendations and Challenges
TLDR
Guidelines to combine velocity metrics with subjective scales to prescribe training loads are presented, as well as methods to estimate 1-Repetition Maximum (1RM) on a daily basis using individual load–velocity profiles. Expand
Velocity Loss Thresholds Reliably Control Kinetic and Kinematic Outputs during Free Weight Resistance Training
TLDR
For practitioners wishing to reliably control the kinetic and kinematic stimulus that is being applied to their athletes, it is advised that a velocity-based approach is used. Expand
Traditional Versus Velocity-Based Resistance Training in Competitive Female Cyclists: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
In conclusion, the addition of a short-term intervention of VBRT or TRT to the usual training regimen of competitive female cyclists improves muscle strength/power, albeit V BRT might induce superior gains on maximum strength/ power for the hip thrust exercise. Expand
Training for Muscular Strength: Methods for Monitoring and Adjusting Training Intensity
TLDR
Load adjustment and monitoring methods should be used to supplement and guide the practitioner, quantify what the practitioner ‘sees’, and provide longitudinal data to assist in reviewing athlete development and providing baselines for the rate of expected development in resistance training when an athlete returns to sport from injury or large training load reductions.

Video-Based System for Automatic Measurement of Barbell Velocity in Back Squat
TLDR
The results suggest that the developed video system is a valid, reliable, and trustworthy instrument for measuring velocity and derived variables accurately with practical implications for use by coaches and practitioners. Expand
A comprehensive analysis of the velocity-based method in the shoulder press exercise: stability of the load-velocity relationship and sticking region parameters
TLDR
The results may serve as a practical guideline to effectively implement the velocity-based method in the SP exercise as well as investigate the stability of this load-velocity relationship for athletes with different relative strength levels. Expand
Force-velocity profiling in athletes: Reliability and agreement across methods
TLDR
The aim of the study was to examine the test-retest reliability and agreement across methods for assessing individual force-velocity profiles of the lower limbs in athletes and found the SFV was unreliable for all measurement methods assessed during vertical jumping. Expand
Effects of subjective and objective autoregulation methods for intensity and volume on enhancing maximal strength during resistance-training interventions: a systematic review
TLDR
Overall, the findings suggest that using both subjective autoregulation methods for intensity, such as repetitions in reserve rating of perceived exertion and flexible daily undulation periodisation, together with objective autore gulations for autoreGulation intensity and volume, could be effective methods for enhancing maximal strength.

TLDR
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. Expand
