Velocity-Based Training (VBT) is a training method that allows us evaluating the velocity of the concentric phase of a movement, managing to analyze and program training intensity and load. The method concerns the measurement of the speed of the ratio between the barbell/dumbbell and a limb, through the use of an accelerometer or tools suitable for this assessment, which are more and more accurate and marketed today. In consideration of the need in sports training to establish an optimal workload, this innovative methodology measures the speed of execution and proposes a hypothetical ideal training load, through a sensor that can be connected to the wrist or the bar in order to perform the exercises in the best way. The methodology used employs the latest-generation technological elements.
