Featured Trainer: Bruno Verri S&C Coach: Grêmio Football Porto Alegrense

Bruno Verri

Bruno Verri is the Strength Coach for Grêmio Football Porto Alegrense Youth Teams and is this months Beast Featured Trainer. Bruno purchased a Beast Sensor over a year ago and started implementing it with his Youth Teams to help build strength and power. Bruno was great to chat with us a little bit and tell us how he uses Beast with his Youth Team’s to prepare them for the next level.




What team(s) do you use Beast Sensor with?

Bruno: I work in Grêmio Football Porto Alegrense Youth teams (U15,U16,U17,U20) as a strength coach. My job is to measure the strength and power development of every athlete.


What are you using Beast to measure?

Bruno: This year, while using the Beast sensor I have been monitoring the bar speed in the power sessions.  I can individualize each athlete training load and also the number of reps in each set according to the bar speed performance.


How has Beast been implemented into weekly/daily training cycles?

Bruno: Because of the high number of athletes I train, I chose 1 primary exercise to  monitor, and to adjust the load to achieve the sessions objective.


How has Beast help to improve your athletes workouts?

Bruno: The sensor has helped to determine the load of each session, and to easily adjust it each day instead of waiting for another cycle to repeat a 1RM test.


What are you favorite features about Beast?

Bruno: I really like the real time feedback of the app, and the new updates have been great making the app faster. I use the velocity and mean velocity feedback a lot with my athletes. 

Beast has been a great tool that we implemented in our training and we have seen great feedback and results from our Youth Teams.

Good luck to all the Grêmio Football Porto Alegrense Teams on the upcoming seasons!
