In the next two parts of this article series, I will explain how the optimization of the Force-Velocity Profile (FVP) works. Before jumping into FVP optimization, I will first explain the same reasoning using the Acceleration-Velocity Profile (AVP) since it is easier to comprehend.

The skill of sprinting is a key performance determining factor whether that be directly in track and field, or indirectly in team sports. This can be broken down into three phases: the acceleration phase, the maximum velocity (MV) phase and the deceleration phase.
