A collection of high-quality strength and conditioning articles.
Force-velocity profiling is a simple and inexpensive way to assess an athlete’s force and velocity production capabilities during ballistic tasks such as jumping and sprinting.
The force-vector theory allows coaches to identify training exercises (e.g. back squat) which may have greater specificity to the competition movements (e.g. sprinting).
This form of training uses technology to measure the speed of an exercise in order to maximise strength and power development.
Coaching cues are a foundational item of any coaches repertoire, but despite how important they are, very few coaches give them a second thought!
