As a coach I’ve always been curious to explore new ways of structuring training for my athletes to reach their goals in the most efficient way. For the past years Velocity Tracking and Velocity Based Training has been an important tool for parts of my team. It has helped lifters develop self-awareness and confidence in their abilities. Furthermore, it has helped us tweak training to get the most out of each training session and avoid injuries.
However, you don’t get stronger just by measuring your training. You get stronger by providing feedback and by taking smart training decisions. Velocity-based training can help you put the right weight on the bar, perform the right number of sets, and complete the right number of reps.
In this article I will share some of those athletes stories and then guide you how to get started with velocity based training.
