The load–velocity relationship is widely recognized for its ability to accurately predict the 1-repetition maximum (1RM) in both lower-body and upper-body exercises. 1 – 3 With the data generated by linear-regression models, practitioners can frequently monitor and adjust the resistance

Recent studies have recommended the individual load–velocity relationship for

It should be noted that all the studies that have determined the load–velocity relationship in the concentric-only BP have reported very similar velocities for a given %1RM. 9 , 10 , 15 Collectively, these results offer support for the use of general equations to
