Kinectic Performance's GymAware
Designed by sporting experts, produced in Australia and used by elite sporting teams and institutions internationally. GymAware offers scientifically-validated and actionable metrics that will help improve your training in the weight room.
GymAware has the worlds largest repository of strength related data. To date there are well over 5.5 million individual reps on their secure database. GymAware has been validated by the Australian Institute of Sport and is extensively used in research papers worldwide.
The GymAware PowerTool is a Linear Position Transducer designed specifically for measuring performance in athletes.
GymAware is used for regular performance monitoring of their athletes. They are most interested in:
- Monitoring for fatigue
- Assessing the effectiveness of training programs
- Training particular performance traits such as speed or strength
Users most commonly use the counter movement squat jump because:
- its a good measure of lower body explosive power
- the protocol is easily standardized
- can be done unweighted
- minimal skill is required
- is quick to perform
- jumping is a valuable athletic trait
What metrics are coming in?
Rep Number: Number of repetitions (1,2,3,4,5)
Conc Peak Velocity (m/s): also known as Concentric Peak Velocity, measured in meter per second
Conc Peak Power (W): also known as Concentric Peak Power, measured in watts
Conc Work (J): amount of energy exerted in joules
Mean Watts/kg: Average peak power divided by the weight used for the exercise
Peak Watts/kg: The peak power divided by the weight used for the exercise
RSI: Reactive strength can be defined as the ability to change quickly from an eccentric to a concentric contraction. The RS(Index) is a suitable way of registering the extent of explosivity.
Ecc Min Velocity: also know as Eccentric Minimum Velocity
Ecc Peak Force (N): also known as Eccentric Peak Force
Ecc Peak Power (W): also known as Eccentric Peak Power
Ecc Peak Velocity (m/s): also known as Eccentric Peak Velocity
