Abstract

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO DISCUSS THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF VELOCITY-BASED TRAINING (VBT) AND HOW IT CAN BE USED TO TRAIN VARIOUS PERFORMANCE FACTORS SPECIFIC TO AMERICAN FOOTBALL. THE ADVANTAGES OF VBT ARE ITS ABILITY TO IDENTIFY PROPER TRAINING LOADS WHEN DAY-TO-DAY FLUCTUATIONS IN MUSCLE PERFORMANCE OCCUR, THE ABILITY TO ENHANCE SPECIFICITY OF TRAINING, AND THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK TO IMPROVE MOTIVATION AND PERFORMANCE. USING VBT HAS RESULTED IN TANGIBLE IMPROVEMENTS IN COLLEGIATE FOOTBALL PLAYERS' POWER PRODUCTION, WHICH IS A KEY TO IMPROVING ON-FIELD PERFORMANCE.
