Abstract

Intensity and volume are arguably the most important acute resistance training variables. Resistance training intensity based upon a percentage of an individual’s 1RM may fail to consider an athlete’s conditional, day-to-day training readiness. The use of various progressive auto-regulated resistance training protocols has been suggested. Recent advances in the monitoring of movement velocity may optimize the use of auto-regulated resistance training. By matching established acute resistance training variables (e.g., repetitions, sets, recovery time, etc) to specific movement velocities, the S&C practitioner can optimize resistance training intensity and objectively identify the onset of neuromuscular fatigue. Monitoring of movement velocity provides real-time, performance feedback, which may enhance neurological adaptations to resistance training and improve an athlete’s motivation to apply consistent maximal effort.
