Strength = mass x acceleration
We all know this, but when it comes to strength training planning, it is only proposed work based on the percentage of the load compared to the 1RM.
In an article in the Australian Strength and Conditioning Journal it is shown that, from the moment we find the 1RM for a given exercise, it changes by +/- 18% practically immediately afterwards.
Another consideration is that we should look for the 1RM for each exercise in which we want to apply the training percentage.
Hence the research had a decidedly high stimulus that led many to consider the effects of strength training by shifting the focus from the load (as a percentage of 1RM) to the speed of movement of the load.
Due to the disadvantages of the percentage-based approach, velocity-based training has been proposed as a method to better and more accurately prescribe training loads to increase general and specific performance.
I have been using the V.B.T for years. as a strength training proposal for both athletes and fitness people with excellent results.
I structured a theoretical-practical training course in order to share my experience with all the people who wish to do so.
