👋 Hi, I’m Jacob.
S&C Coach, writer and app designer.

This website is dedicated to helping coaches and athletes understand and use velocity tracking in the gym.

Velocity based training is not complicated

Or at least it shouldn't be!

As an S&C coach it is so frustrating how unhelpful the education and content around velocity has been.

This over-complication and theory dominated approach makes velocity tracking unappealing, unhelpful, and at times down-right confusing.

VBTcoach is my attempt to make education around velocity tracking better. A collection of blogs, podcasts, courses, and resources aimed at making  velocity in the weight room a breeze.

Velocity tracking can be a transformitive technology - but you shouldn’t need a PhD to be able to take advantage!

What is velocity based training?

Velocity tracking, most commonly called velocity based training (VBT) is the use of technology to accurately measure the velocity, range of motion, and other metrics within gym based training movements (most typically strength and power exercises).

These insights are then used to motivate lifters, assess readiness and residual fatigue levels, adjust training sessions in real-time, track progress on a range of key metrics, and even structure programs over longer time frames.

There is no single best way to use velocity, it is not a single program, but a range of tools to help make training better.
