In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am chatting with one of the ‘go-to guys’ when it comes to auto-regulatory training and velocity based training, Bryan Mann. Bryan is a super nice guy and it was a real pleasure to finally speak to him.

In the episode we spoke about –

  • Bryan’s background, education and what he is currently doing

  • What is APRE (auto-regulatory progressive resistance exercise)?

  • What other forms of auto-regulatory training are there?

  • How important is bar speed in strength & power training?

  • What are the important metrics when assessing bar speed?

  • The best tools for assessing bar velocity Bryan’s major influences throughout his 16 year career

Bryan mentions a lot of resources throughout this episode so I have made a list of as many of them as I could find below –
