Handle stress and load.
The same load can mean a different stress on different days. It should be noted that the daily 1 repetition maximum can fluctuate by up to ± 18 % in the period of one month. Using Vmaxpro the load can be adapted to the daily readiness. An effective and reliable way to do this is velocity based training.
Velocity based training
The quasi-linear relation between velocity and load can be used to create a velocity profile of an athlete in a particular exercise and therefore recommendations for actual loads used by an athlete can be given based on the daily readiness.
How many repetitions should be performed per set?
This raises to the question of how fatiguing a training should and how long the regeneration time of the athlete will be. The more fatigue an athlete experiences in a set, the longer it will take him to recover.
The most accessible way to describe this is through Repetitions in Reserve (RIR). RIR describes how many repetitions an athlete could have performed in a set after finishing the set. This value can be subjectively or objectively measured using the velocity based training approach.
Finally train goal oriented.
Define and choose a training goal which already determines a rough percentage range of the load that will be used. The final load range and stress level will be further defined by selecting the 2 intensity settings.
As a Vmaxpro Trainer or Team user, advanced settings are available here as an alternative. If the advanced settings are selected, the previous selections have no effect and you can choose your very own VBT settings.
Motivate athletes with real time feedback.
Each sport or training philosophy considers different values for an objective evaluation of the training. That is why everyone can decide for themselves which values should be taken into consideration for the evaluation of strength training.
All this in real time during the training, individually adapted to your needs. The direct display of these values can play a decisive role in the motivation of an athlete.
All the tools to plan, track and analyze strength training.
