Always the right balance.

Effective strength training is based on the optimal interaction of different stress normatives. We are aiming to create the most suitable level of stress for every desired training goal.

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.

No matter which values are of interest to you in strength training. Vmaxpro provides all relevant metrics for the objective evaluation of an athlete.

Go FROM “We still train to strict cycles.” TO use objective data to adapt your training on the fly according to your goals.

Only the combination of quantitative and qualitative data gives an overall picture of the strength training of an athlete.

Go FROM “I thought that was a well performed lift.” TO clear visibility of weak points during a lift.

Browse your data using a wide range of parameters and compare historical data with those of the present - down to the single repetition.

Go FROM “I have no idea what I trained 2 months ago” TO have an overview of all your historical data at all times.

Consider performance data in a historical context in order to recognize performance drops and therefore be able to react accordingly.

Go FROM “Have I really gotten stronger lately?” TO see your relevant performance indicators over time.

The recording of accelerations of a wide variety of motion sequences allows a large number of conclusions to be drawn about the motion quality.

Go FROM “I guess our evaluation methods are good enough.” TO go into every last detail with your sports science analyses.

Select specific data that you can further process in Excel or AM systems. This allows Vmaxpro's data to be better integrated into the overall view of an athlete.

Go FROM “I thought my strength training is on point.” TO consider strength training in the context of other environmental factors.
