Recorded in June 2023, this presentation covers the fundamentals of velocity tracking theory before diving into the practical side of velocity based training for strength, power and hypertrophy development.

Note: This workshop focuses somewhat on the specific features and uses of the Metric Pro and Metric Teams dashboard products, however the principles and practical applications discussed can also be applied when using linear positional transducers (LPT), accelerometer (IMU), or other camera-based bar speed tracking devices and technology.
