Glad to hear those OHPs felt good.

Thanks guys. And BtB, so am I, think its time to build some big overhead strength.

So, although I should be revising for tomorrows exam, I've spent the last couple of hours playing with a program I found. Being an engineering student, I think it's awesome. It's called Tracker and basically you open up a video in it, set up a co-ordinate system and reference an object size and from this you can do all sorts, calculate velocities, acceleration etc.. Mike Tuchscherer uses a lot of stuff like this, although he has a Tendo unit and has some real precision with the way he approaches training. I find this stuff really interesting so thought I'd share it quickly.

Here is a snapshot of one of my benches this morning.


Having set the y-axis roughly along the bar path I set the graphs on the right to be y-acceleration/y-velocity against y-displacement. The graphs can pin point where the acceleration was lowest, i.e the weakest point of the lift. Can also see that the bar path isn't straight, for the first part of the lift the bar moves backwards, maybe over-tucking the elbows.

This is just a rough play around with it and it isn't the best camera angle but I still think this can come in useful for analysing lifts.

It's available to download here: Tracker Video Analysis and Modeling Tool for Physics Education

This is an article I found about its use but I haven't had time to read it thoroughly: Strength Musings: Weakness Identification: Version 2.0

I'll post this on the open forum too for anyone interested. Now, time to work .

29/05/12 - Deadlift & Squat

Band Pull Throughs ( Between dead warm-ups)
Blue x 10 x 5

Hang Clean (Warming up)
Bar x 5
40kg x 5
60kg x 5

Deadlift
100kg x 3, 120kg x 2, 140kg x 1, 160kg x 1 @8

180kg x 2 x 4 @9, @9, @9, @9.5

Pause Squat
60kg x 5

100kg x 5 x 5 @8.5, @8,5, @9, @8.5, @9

Single Leg Curls/Band Abs
35/Blue x 12/30 x 2

No sleep and rough session, deads felt heavy, thought I was moving slower than when I hit 190x3 2 weeks ago, might have to see what tracker says . Still, overall the most I've done with 180 is 1x3 so 4x2 isn't so bad.

Need to get used to the work-load of the lower sessions and get a better gauge for how tough the lower reps are, I'm too used to lighter sets where the bar speed stays pretty high.

Most annoying thing today, the bellend that decided to mop the weight room whilst people were using it.

Great work again J, you engineering geek
And this is in no way a manifestation of my jealousy of your engineering skills

Thanks Faz, enjoying the paused work, feeling a lot tighter and controlled on the eccentrics and I can sink them without beating my ankles up too bad.

Cheers Kuyt. Give it a few years and we'll see if there's anything to be jealous of .

Thanks markievicz, is a handy tool. Last exam on Friday, the worst is over now though. I wish they were but I have another 2 years left yet, providing everything stays as planned.


Been playing around looking at my deads this afternoon, comparing the first and last set today and also comparing those against the 190x3 I hit 2 weeks ago. Lot of info gathered but the main thing; todays lifts all suffered at lockout, wasn't aggressive enough throwing the shoulders back like in recent sessions, rectify that next week and I should see some better lifts.
