• # Optimal Force-Velocity Profile for Sprinting: Is It All Bollocks? – Part 6

In this sixth and final installment of this article series, I will explore whether the “causal” interpretation of the Force-Velocity Profiling "holds water” using N=1 testing.

• # Optimal Force-Velocity Profile for Sprinting: Is It All Bollocks? – Part 5

In this article I will do a simple simulation to acquire insights about the practical usefulness of the AVP and FVP optimization models.

• # Optimal Force-Velocity Profile for Sprinting: Is It All Bollocks? – Part 4

In the previous installment, I have demonstrated how to perform sensitivity/optimization analysis of the Acceleration-Velocity Profile (AVP) using (1) probing method and (2) slope method. In this installment I will explain how to do it using the Force-Velocity Profile (FVP).

• # Optimal Force-Velocity Profile for Sprinting: Is it all bollocks? – Part 3

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.

• # Optimal Force-Velocity Profile for Sprinting: Is It All Bollocks? – Part 2

In the previous part, I introduced two models to map out the velocity-time relationship in short sprints, while in this article, I will focus on the characteristics of the mono-exponential model.

• # Optimal Force-Velocity Profile for Sprinting: Is It All Bollocks? – Part 1

In this article series I will provide my opinion regarding the use of Force-Velocity Profile (FVP) optimization for short sprints (i.e., the sprints where there is no deceleration).

• # New {shorts} Package and Two New Pre-Prints

I have recently updated the {shorts}package to version 2.0.0, which is now available at CRAN. If you have been using previous version of {shorts}package, please note that with version 2.0.0 you will lose compatibility and will need to rewrite some code.

• # Create Custom Set and Rep Schemes With {STMr} – Module 2: Reps-Max Relationship

This course module will introduce the elementary building block for creating set and rep schemes - the reps-max relationship. The first video in this module deals with some theory and introduces three models to “map out” the relationship between reps to failure and %1RM.
