A multi-media online textbook/course, the VBT Field Guide is the ultimate resource for coaches and athletes looking to maximise their training outcomes by incorporating velocity based training principles and tactics.
From the fundamental principles of VBT, through to simple and advanced practical applications, this field guide covers everything you need to get started and ultimately master velocity based training.
Complete with extensive references, step-by-step practicals and plenty of real-world examples, this guide is perfect for strength athletes, s&c coaches, or anyone looking to get more out of their training with velocity.
The VBT Field Guide is device agnostic, so no matter what technology you use to record velocity this guide will improve your application and deepen your understanding of VBT.
Are you interested in incorporating velocity and other metrics into your training?
Then you should check out Metric VBT the revolutionary new VBT application I am helping to build.
The vision for Metric is to make velocity based training an easy and seamless experience, delivering accurate data and adding detailed feedback about your training data so that lifters and coaches of all levels can optimise their training in real-time. Enhancing strength and power gains without the need for complicated and expensive equipment or a PhD in data science.
Metric VBT is only new and still has plenty of features in development, but it's free to download and use, so test it out and let me know what you think!
Metric is available on iPhone via the App Store.
When I started using VBT most of the information on training with velocity was incredibly complex. I quickly became frustrated that many beginners were discouraged from using the incredible techniques available with VBT. This website is my attempt to make VBT simple!
