Continuing on my rant on three parameters of intensity in strength training I decided to update my Percent-Repetition Chart from August, 2012 that seems to be quite popular (I have seen it in couple of blogs and some recent books – I don’t mind – au contraire – I feel pride).

Coaches, and especially researchers should take into account all three parts of prescribing and quantifying Intensity (Intensity together with Volume provide LOAD; but I will leave different ways of quantifying Volume for another rant) to avoid confusion and provide precision. This could be done with monitoring velocity of the lifts as well and I urge researchers reading this to...

I have updated Percent-based to velocity-based converter to include conversion from velocity-based to percent-based approach using load-velocity profile and %1RM-max reps profile. This is important since it allows coaches to get easier ‘grip’ on velocity-based approach and how it could be used and converted.Here is the screen shot

“Nothing Is More Practical Than A Good Theory” – In the following video I am explaining how to use Excel converter to convert percent-based programs to velocity-based programs based on lifters load-velocity profile for a given movement.

Using Absolute vs. Relative Velocity Zones Suppose you are coaching two distance runners, one with MAS (Maximum Aerobic Speed) of 18km/h and one with MAS of 21 km/h. The former is definitely more aerobically fit and would crush the latter in most middle to long distances (taking into account that threshold is proportional to MAS)....
