Testing for Linear Speed with Carl Valle

Play
Read more

We’ve all heard the shortest path from A to B is a straight line, but HOW we measure linear speed isn’t as clearly understood. My guest on this episode, Coach and Sport Technologist Carl Valle, has honed his expertise in performance data as well as an understanding for practical application of equipment and software.

In this first of a four-part series with Coach Valle we discuss linear speed and how to most reliably and validly test it. We began first with how we currently measure speed – in America we tend to think in terms of 40-yard dash times, but in other countries it’s generally in meters per second or kilometers per hour. Either way, sport performance testing usually consists of picking an arbitrary distance and measuring the speed to see how fast someone can run.

It’s not quite that simple though because usually the testing protocol itself can be learned and/or taught. For example, take into consideration a laser timer: if an athlete’s initial hand motion crosses the laser before their core body even begins movement, have they started “going” yet? Regardless of the testing protocol, there needs to be just that – a protocol – to ensure consistency and fairness across measurements.

Another facet of testing is the human error side of things (think reaction time to start and stop a timer). Coach Valle states that a human should oversee the testing process, but the testing process should not be dependent on the human. In this regard, a proper testing protocol can help eliminate human bias and error.

An additional expert tip from Coach Valle is that a good sprint test should be long enough to get you peak velocity and precise enough to understand acceleration. We reviewed a few sport specific tests for speed and their respective pluses and minuses.

We finished up the episode with a conversation around the differences and implications of peak velocity versus acceleration. After all his years of experience and expertise, Coach Valle firmly believes peak velocity indicates someone’s trainability capacity and true talent more so than acceleration. Acceleration is far more coachable and trainable, and as such, a good coach can mask a lot of talent issues by coaching acceleration well. When we’re able to raise peak velocity, we’re able to accelerate more efficiently, which in most sports is where majority of time is spent (relative to peak velocity).

D&D Fitness Radio Podcast - Episode 019 - Carl Valle: Making Use of Fitness Technology

Play
Read more
In Episode 019 of the D&D Fitness Radio Podcast, we speak with Carl Valle on the topic of technology in fitness. Carl has an extensive background on technologies used in sport, but also can speak to the innovations that have trickled down to the average consumer. We discuss the value of wearable technology and whether or not it is improving the health and fitness of users, but also improving the overall user experience. While some technologies can be useful, other forms of technology can get in the way of a good fitness experience. In an age where we consider technology to be the answer to all of our problems, time and care must be taken to make sure we understand how a specific technology can improve our situation, without further complicating our lives.

Carl Valle has extensive experience in the realm of sport technology, working with University programs, professional teams and Olympic organizations that are looking to improve their monitoring of athlete training and performance, and ultimately the overall health and wellness of their athletes. Carl has also worked closely with numerous sport and fitness technology companies to improve the user experience and bridge the gap between technology and individuals seeking to enhance their own human performance levels.

11: Carl Valle | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Play

This week’s guest is Carl Valle of Spikesonly.com.

Carl is, amongst other sprint and hurdle coaching talents, a speed technology expert.  A current trend in athletic performance is jump testing, both as a means of assessing physical progression over the course of a training year, as well as a way of seeking to balance out athletes for the prevention of injury, and potential optimization of performance.

The vertical jump is the greatest display of power that an athlete can generally produce, so it does make good sense to have adequate knowledge regarding testing and assessing the movement.  After all, “what you measure, you improve”.

There are a lot of opinions on the best way to test power through the vertical jump, so Carl and I cover a lot of ground on this topic in this podcast.

View more podcast episodes at the podcast homepage.

Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.
Key Points:

The basics of using vertical jumping as a means of assessing athletic preparation
Considerations with the novelty factor in jump training
Guidelines in deciding which jump monitoring system to utilize
Why Carl likes repeated jumps vs. single efforts in testing
Pro’s and con’s of accelerometer based testing
The advantage of jump testing with added barbell load
Embedding tests as a part of the warmup
How and when to test jumping for team sports vs. track and field
Utilizing jump testing in context of strengths vs. weaknesses, and “balancing” the force-velocity jump profile of athletes
How to determine what is necessary to train for, and what data one should collect over time
The relationship between athletic structure, sprint testing and vertical jump performance
Why Carl likes a plethora of jump tests in training and assessment
“The first time you get on a force plate or jump mat, you’re excited, and want to know your numbers…. but you start to get bored, and want something different or not at all… jump testing requires an all-out performance to be valid”

“When there’s lines (for testing), people aren’t learning and moving and getting better”

“You should be video taping jump testing”

“Accelerometers, because they’re cheap, you can make devices really easily.  We’re going to see less physical pads or plates, and a lot more sensors”

“(knowing wattage) resets people’s perception of the numbers”

“In sports preparation, you always want to contrast what they’re not getting.  So basketball players, there is a joke that it is the “no barbell association”, testing vertical jump with a barbell reinforces the cultural side of what we’re trying to do”

“My rule is to make sure the tests are embedded (as part of the warmup)”

“Rate of force development, you have to be careful, because you have to do a lot of teasing out to get there”

“If you don’t think it’s going to improve, don’t test it”

“Training data trumps monitoring every single time”

“The most humbling experience you can do, is have athletes to do a 2-point leaning stance, and time them, because you won’t get the artificial benefit of learning to accelerate better from a mechanically efficient position”

“Maximum velocity is the most wonderful test; I’ve seen guys with awesome 20 meter tests, and the look great, get cleared, but then they get hurt”

“You need to start profiling with greater precision than “what’s your 20 time?”  (This is where a device like the 1080 sprint really shines)
