#144 - The Benefits Of Velocity Based Training

November 15, 2019
Learn about how Velocity Based Training can improve performance, build power, strength and muscle, and allow for auto-regulating training in real time. ⁠⁠

Velocity Based Training (VBT) uses velocity as a metric to tells us about the quality of our training, adding an objective value on the quality of every rep. Velocity tracking rewards intent, punishes poor technique and channels motivation into increasing output on every single set, not just how much weight in on the bar for your top sets. Although Velocity Based Training is not a single universal system for training, it informs programming and periodisation decisions, and allows for auto-regulating training in real time. ⁠⁠

Jacob Tober and Durham and Jacob dive into the benefits and weaknesses of Velocity Based Training, and touch of some of the best practices for utilising VBT with your clients and athletes.
