'Set Velocity' is the associated velocity value for a performed set. This value represents the average velocity of all repetitions performed in a specific set, which can be interpreted as the Athlete's performance across the set at a specific load.
'Velocity Precision' is an indicator of the proximity of the actual set velocity compared to the prescribed velocity zone, where 100% means that set velocity was exactly inside the specified velocity zone. Any other value shows the deviation of the actual set velocity relative to the velocity zone that was targeted.
'Velocity Zone' represents a specific velocity range, and is relative to a specific training focus that is being targeted by an athlete when performing a given exercise. For example, an athlete focusing on power when performing a back squat will target a specific velocity zone in order to maximize their development.
Velocity zones vary depending on training goal and exercise. For example, a strength velocity zone for exercise X will be different than a speed velocity zone for exercise X.
Velocity Loss is an indicator of fatigue that shows the decrease in velocity values over the course of a set. It compares the velocity of the last performed rep to that of the fastest previously performed rep within the same set. The difference is expressed as a percentage of the fastest velocity achieved during that set. Larger velocity loss percentages indicate greater in-set fatigues.
Velocity Loss Cut-offs (VLC) can be set in terms of both absolute and relative values in the PUSH VBT Mobile App prior to any set and for any exercise.
