Force-Velocity Profiling and Training Optimization Course:
MODULE 2: Theory – Part 2
In this video, I will explain the similarities and differences between Load-Velocity and force-velocity profiling. Since we are not using force plates nor 3D cameras, I will explain the basis behind the Samozino et al. model, which allows for very simple mean ground reaction force (GRF) estimation (see references provided).
