Bryan Mann’s VBT training zone chart

Although Mann works at the University, he’s very good at translating theory into practical application. The best example is probably his velocity based training zones. Read everything you need to know about these velocity zones in this article.

“GymAware will capture and collect all of the data for you. As a function of the reports, the GymAware can also give you a predicted 1RM for any given day. With this already done and accounted for, it enables you to examine trends in the loads lifted at the various velocity zones over time to assess progress.

Scientific publications

Mann published several scientific papers about velocity-based training. The most famous one – that we highly recommend reading – is:

  • Velocity-based training: From theory to application

You can download this paper in PDF via this link.

Other papers worth reading are:

  • Using the Load-Velocity Profile for Predicting the 1RM of the Hexagonal Barbell Deadlift Exercise [LINK]
  • Predicting performance on the NFL-225 bench press test using bar velocity [LINK]
  • Application of velocity loss thresholds during free-weight resistance training [LINK]
  • Velocity-Based Training in Football [LINK]

“The use of devices such as the GymAware not only give you crucial feedback, they are the way to ensure that you are training the appropriate traits and will thus see the desired outcomes of training.
