VELOCITY BASED TRAINING FOR POWERLIFTING

VELOCITY BASED TRAINING
FOR POWERLIFTING

FOREFRONT OF
INNOVATION

Velocity based training is currently at the forefront of innovation for powerlifting. Measuring velocity tells us much more than just how fast we are moving. Think of traditional programming as drawing a road map for your athlete and they have to radio in their location so you can make course corrections. VBT is like having a GPS.

Sample Lecture

What you will learn

VBT is a using a device that attaches to you bar and tracks velocity. That velocity can produce data that gives us an insight to the athletes nervous system giving us objective feed back on adaptation and neuromuscular fatique. In this workshop you will learn:

  • Creating Individual Force Velocity Profiles
  • Use Velocity as an objective form of Autoregulation
  • How to Track Strength Progress Daily
  • How to use velocity to assess neuromuscular fatigue
  • How to program with Velocity
  • How to coach with Velocity

Sarah Rainbow is the best example how effective VBT can be. Given her experience it makes it a lot hard for someone at her level to makes progress so if she does, take note on what she did.

In 2018 ProRawX she was at the pinnacle of the sport winning the toughest competition on the planet. She squatted 227.5kg, benched an all time record of 157.5kg and 255kg deadlift

2 years later we struggled with progressing these lifts. In a late 2019 competition we hit a 235kg and 152.5kg bench press. From Nov 2019 to March 2020 we use the same programming strategy but used VBT to help determine training load.

5 months after that competition she hit a 257.5kg squat and unofficially re-broke the all time Australian bench record with a 161kg
