We can calculate a force-velocity profile for an athlete in a lift by measuring the bar speed and the force produced at a range of loads. Measuring this force-velocity profile at varying times during a training block can be used to monitor the effects of a training program.

Very often, the gradient of the force-velocity profile will change after a block of a certain type of training. …
