    Now that velocity tracking devices are becoming affordable, i'm considering it. I don't find speed training with barbell lifts very satisfying unless i can meaningfully tell if i'm moving the bar faster

    This video is probably irrelevant, but I'm a fan of Ed Coan.

    Check out the 3:06 mark.

    If you're doing 5x5, you probably shouldn't be doing any speed work. In general, speed work should be reserved for individuals that have very solid technique. A good progression for most lifters is to go from repetition to maximal and finally speed work.
