Resistance exercise training programs elicit improvements in strength by structuring and manipulating traditional training variables like, but not limited too, sets, reps, load, intensity, interval, and exercise selection. The specific structuring and application of these variables result in morphological adaptations including, but not limited too; increased muscle fiber size, change in fiber structure and architecture, CNS adaptations like increased activation of motor units within a muscle and increased rate of firing of motor units.
At METfit we provide our members with as many scientifically backed strength training best practices and advice as possible. VBT(Velocity Based Training) is one of the many training strategies we use to increase strength, power, and size.
