Force Velocity Profile
Mass and Velocity, when it comes to velocity-based training have a linear relationship giving velocity an integral role in seeing the whole picture to force production in strength training.
What does this mean?
- If load remains and velocity increases we are getting stronger
- If load increases and velocity remains we are getting stronger
- If load remains and velocity decreases we are fatigue or going backwards
- Is velocity decrease at the same load research has showing that is an increase to neuromuscular fatigue
- We can assign a percentage of 1RM with an exact velocity.
When it comes to powerlifting/strength movement we can create a linear regression model with x value being the percentage of 1RM and y value being velocity in ms. This can immediately replace percentage-based training and allow for an objective form of auto-regulation.
What do I mean by an objective form of auto regulation:
- If your prescribe intensity has a slower velocity you either need to reduce load or lift better
- If your prescribe intensity has a faster velocity then you need to increase load but ensure you are maintaining quality of movement

I have a webinar on the 7th of Nov 2020 teaching your a lot more on how you can use Velocity Based training where we will cover
- 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
