Available metrics

There are many metrics in strength training. With the scientifically evaluated Vmaxpro Sensor you have the possibility to measure the most relevant ones for powerlifting, weightlifting and everything else strength training related. Most of these values are not visible to the human eye. Therefore, Vmaxpro offers the possibility to add value to the training of all coaches and athletes.

Velocity Metrics

Average velocity

Indicates the average concentric velocity of your lift over the distance.

Average velocity drop

Indicates the drop of average concentric velocity compared to your quickest repetition during a set.

Peak velocity

Indicates the peak concentric velocity reached during a lift.

Peak velocity drop

Indicates the drop of peak concentric velocity compared to your quickest repetition during a set.

Mean propulsive velocity

Indicates the average velocity of the acceleration phase of a lift.

Mean propulsive velocity drop

Indicates the drop of average velocity of the acceleration phase compared to your quickest repetition during a set.

Movement velocity

Indicates a repetitions' movement velocity and is defined as velocity per distance. This makes it possible to filter out areas of a lift in which a lot of time is spent, but little performance is generated.

Movement velocity drop

Indicates the drop of movement velocity compared to your quickest repetition during a set.

Average eccentric velocity

Indicates the average eccentric velocity of your lift over the distance.

Peak eccentric velocity

Indicates the peak eccentric velocity reached during your lift.

Flywheel Specific Metrics

Force

Indicates the average generated force in the concentric phase of a lift.

Force drop

Indicates the drop of concentric force compared to your most forceful repetition during a set.

Peak force 

Indicates the average generated peak force in the concentric phase of a lift.

Peak force drop

Indicates the drop of concentric peak force compared to your most forceful repetition during a set.

Jump Specific Metrics

Contact time

Contact time is the phase in which an athlete is able to generate force. For drop jumps this metric shows contact time and for CMJ it shows the time from the eccentric start till lift off.

RSI

The reactive strength index is calculated by jump height divided by time to take off or contact time. It shows how well an athlete is able to move through the stretch-shortening-cycle.

Performance Metrics

Average power

Indicates the average power of your lift over the distance.

Average power drop

Indicates the drop of average power compared to your best repetition during a set.

Peak power

Indicates the peak power reached during a lift.

Peak power drop

Indicates the drop of peak power compared to your best repetition during a set.

Peak RFD

The peak rate of force development is calculated in 40 ms intervals over the entire concentric of a lift.

Peak eccentric RFD

The peak rate of force development is calculated in 40 ms intervals over the whole eccentric of a lift.

Technique Metrics

Distance (concentric and eccentric)

Indicates the distance travelled by the sensor during a lift

Duration

Indicates the duration travelled by the sensor during a lift

Minimum/Maximum displacement

Indicates the minimal and maximal horizontal displacement from the starting point towards and away from the athlete.

Chart Metrics

Point of max. velocity

This value shows you the point of maximum velocity of the lift.

Point of max. acceleration

This value shows you the point of maximum acceleration of the lift.

Minimum Velocity Threshold (MVT)

This velocity indicates the slowest known velocity achieved in this exercise. This value significantly influences the calculation of the e1RM.

Muscle Performance Threshold (MPT)

Point of maximum mechanical muscle power.

1 Repetition Maximum (1RM or e1RM)

Maximum load that can be moved in one exercise. Note that this metric should be considered theoretical. For many athletes, technique failure occurs before e1RM is reached, even though the muscles would theoretically be able to handle the load.
