Perhaps the most important reason to use VRT is to improve the rate of power development.
Increasing concentric resistance creates a need to accelerate continuously.
The design was unique in the fact that it was the middle portion of the lift in which the lifters had identical relative tension, and the VRT group had greater tension at the top of the movement than the control group.
The participants, who were NCAA basketball players, added the band workouts once per week to their normal routines.
As the athlete moves up towards the end position of an exercise, they are also typically moving up the ascending strength curve (Figure 2).
In a recent study in the The proposed reasons to use VRT are numerous.Researchers did discover that the rate of power development increased more in the group of athletes using bands after five weeks of training.There were also some greater improvements to strength and lean muscle mass for the VRT group, although the total loading was relatively higher.The researchers in this study proposed that power development might be a more critical part of lifting success than peak power alone.In the end, the researchers decided that VRT was an important part of resistance training.
