Power tests for inertial training devices2013-01-20
SmartCoach software has further evolved with even more functionalities to be the perfect companion for inertial training devices, such as kBox and VersaPulley. The latest treat is a feature allowing the execution of power tests with incremental inertia to shed some lights about a classical question: what is the optimal training inertia? Power curves can of course be compared to assess pre/post changes, left/right inbalance, and so on. Data courtesy of bijCAS Fysiotherapie.
Power curve-driven training2012-12-03
The new release of SmartCoach software incorporates a unique feature to plan the target power and load directly on the athlete’s power curve. It can also calculate the load automatically based on the desired target power and training goal (e.g. hypertrophy or explosive force).
And with the new propagate function, once you have planned the training schedule for one athlete, you can propagate it to the entire team with one click! SmartCoach will take care of recalculating power and load for each player based on individual power curves and 1RM.
