Android: Check out the Deep Squatter App on the Google Play Store (free).
It is an app that uses your smartphone’s sensors to track squat depth and speed.
Johan, the creator of the app, contacted me because he needs some guinea pigs.
With his app he wants to track how the squat speed and the speed curve changes with increasing weight and figure out some nice algorithm that can use the speed to predict daily 1RM.
So we need to gather some data and that’s where your help comes into play.
What you need to do:
- Do a specific workout a few times with the app running.
- Workout consists of stepping up to a close to 1 rm weight in increments of about 5 kg and about 10 sets in total.
- Last set doesn’t have to be a true 1RM, but it should be a bit of a grinder.
- When you have done the workout, you email the results of all the sets through the app to Johan ([email protected])
So if you want to help out, contact Johan via [email protected] for further details.
More information about the app in his post on Pendlay Forum.
