In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach at LSU, Jeremy Jacobs. I have been on the look out for sometime to get a guest on the podcast who is fully immersed in using velocity based training day in, day out. Jeremy is based at LSU who use Perch, a new camera-based system, and in the episode discusses why VBT research seems to be moving quicker than that in practice. If you’re using VBT already or are interested in using it, this episode is a must listen.

Want to learn more about VBT? These episodes with Bryan MannDan Baker, and Chris Chapman may also be of interest.

  • Who is Jeremy Jacobs (education, background and current role)
  • Benefits of VBT to a program
    • “Favorable adaptation with reduced volume”
    • Of the benefits of VBT, which are implementable?
    • Combination of % based and VBT based methods
      • Does that change through the season, with different athletes etc.
  • Barriers to VBT implementation
    • How have you overcome them?
    • ‘Testing weeks’ – needed?
  • Combining data
    • VBT, GPS, HR, force plates etc
    • Programming based on this data
  • Jeremy can be found on Twitter @Jers315
