RepOne's In-Depth Guide to Velocity Based Training Methodology

There’s a lot of information behind what makes VBT work. Luckily, you don’t need to be an expert to use VBT in the weight room with the help of RepOne sensors. But if you’re still curious about what makes our technology so effective, and why weight rooms and coaches are raving about it, you can learn more in our in-depth guide to VBT methodology below:

  • Force Velocity Curve
  • Velocity Targets
  • Minimum Velocity Threshold/v1RM
  • RPE Targets
  • Speed Targets
  • Neuromuscular Fatigue
  • Passive VBT
  • Force-Velocity Curve

Target velocity will shift based on the goal. For example, a powerlifter will typically aim for the lower speeds or maximal strength end of this force-velocity curve (figure 2)(Weakley et al., 2021). However, basketball or football athletes might dance around the curve, ranging from maximal strength to speed (Table 2). This also shifts maximal strength capability and a subsequent shift in velocities presented at different intensities.
