Quick Reference

A training principle based on the relationship between the tension and movement velocity of a muscle. If training loads are high, movement velocity produced by a concentric muscle action (i.e. muscle shortening) is low and the training effect is primarily to improve strength. If the movement velocity is high and the load low, the main training effect is to improve speed.
