Gerry DeFilippo
A breakdown of velocity based training and how it can be used to develop athletes in strength training that best transfers to sport.
Show Notes

This episode takes a look at a training method that has become popular in development of athletes, velocity based training, and how you can properly utilize and implement it to both gauge progress and build specific areas in an athlete.

Gerry gives a breakdown of what goes into velocity based training and gives an overall look at the force velocity curve as it pertains to strength and speed characteristics in athletes.

From there, Pat Robles joins the show to discuss the success he's had implementing velocity based training and how he uses it to track readiness and preparation of his athletes throughout the rigors of training. Additionally, Pat discusses how you can you use velocity based training to determine power output of athletes and whether or not they need more velocity work (moving lighter loads faster) or more force work (moving heavier loads with less speed).
