Edited: Finally got it to work! I use black plates in a somewhat dark space. Introduced extra lighting and now the app successfully traces the barpath and loads the graph. Have really enjoyed running my lifts through it and would recommend it to others to get more detailed info about your lifts. Only downside is a lack of exporting options - would give it 5 stars if I could export a clip of the path being traced with the graph alongside. Have another (small) issue where if a clip is deleted from the phone, the entry in barsense cannot be deleted so I've got a growing list of entries that I can't delete and don't have the video files for anymore...
Velocity and other stats skewed, barpath itself good I have noticed with multiple phones the bar velocity is almost 2m/s too fast. On the full version some of the other values like horizontal displacement are off too. Is there a way to calibrate the phone/app that I don't know of? If not, please fix
Incredible Tool It's great to use for myself, or especially in coaching others. I just hope that it continues to receive updates to improve bar tracking, and to maybe update the UI if I were to nitpick. I've recommended it to many, and I'm amazed it isn't more popular than it is.
Bar path, velocity way off on multiple reps A friend of mine uses this app for singles, and it seems to work well for him. I, however, have had consistently bad analysis for multiple rep sets. The bar path and velocity are way off on both metrics.
Decent App Skeptical of accuracy of bar speed and other traking methods (force, distance, etc) but it does do a good job tracking the bar path. It has been inconsistent on speed of video clips of the same lift. I uploaded the same clip a few times and each was different and sometimes significantly. I would imagine differences in tracing your plates/camera instability has a lot to do with it. Looking forward to experimenting more with the app.
Works ok but what's the point if you can't share? This app works ok, though it's pretty slow and frequently crashes when i try to load videos. But i can't share the videos it traces or download them, so i can't send them to my coach, which really limits the usefulness of the app.
Added advanced graphs:
- Power Output in Watts
- Force applied in Newtons
- Vertical distance
- Horizontal displacement
