VBT, Heuristics and Prilepin

In the video below I am discussing few ideas regarding velocity based training (VBT):

  1. potential research in velocity based training (VBT) domain (which will most likely become my PhD thesis) regarding the exhaustion-velocity relationship
  2. the flaws of using % Drop in velocity when stopping a given set, as a way (or metric) that ensures the quality of the set (or level of exhaustion reached)
  3. the idea that simple rules (or heuristics) can beat complex analytics using LPT (linear position transducers) devices, and that you should not be sad because you don’t own one (at least when it comes to ensuring quality reps)

If you are interested in VBT topics, as well as the connection to Prilepin table, this is a must watch video!

Velocity-Based Training: Signal vs. Noise

This is a R workbook using my older bench press data, in which I want to discuss Signal vs. Noise of Velocity-Based Training (VBT) measurements. This could be used for future reliability studies. The goal is to compare within-individual variations of velocity over load-velocity relationship (noise) with smallest practical velocity difference (in my opinion difference in velocities across nRM,…
