Enhancing the Force-Velocity Profile of Athletes Using Weightlifting Derivatives

by Yann Le Meur, PhD
Other May 2017


Weightlifting movements and their derivatives can be programmed effectively by considering their force–velocity characteristics and physiological underpinnings to meet the specific training goals of resistance training phases in accordance with the typical application of periodized training programs.


Weightlifting movements and their derivatives may be programmed throughout the training year to fully develop and improve the athlete's force-velocity profile. Practitioners should consider the prescription of specific weightlifting derivatives during certain training phases based on their biomechanical and physiological characteristics. A combination of weightlifting catching and pulling derivatives may be used to develop the athlete's force-velocity profile. A sequenced approach should be taken when prescribing weightlifting derivatives to meet the goals of each training phase.
