Our patent pending objective feedback system will boost your motivation, prevent injuries and make sure you have optimal progress in your strength training.
Bridging the gap between muscle and mind
AlphaPWR uses advanced metering technology combined with machine learning, sports science and live feedback. To bring the user to the next level. Gamification brings new aspects of motivation to the training community.
A pressure sensitive floor that utilizes AI based algorithms. This includes multiple exercises such as squats, jump testing, static dead lift and balance. The information you need to optimize your workout is displayed right in front of you after every single repetition.
How to use AlphaPWR to improve your progress
We want to give you an introduction on how to improve the quality of your training using our patent pending platform. Why do we use velocity? If you have ever taken a set of squats to failure, you have probably felt how the first repetitions feels fast and easy, while the last barely moves? In Alphatek we use this phenomena to objectively measure how far you are from failure and guide you to an optimized number of repetitions on each set. You may also have taken noticed that when you add load to the bar it moves more slowly. Picture yourself doing a explosive squat with an empty bar. The rep will be ultra fast, and you will be training your ability to produce force quickly. Perfect if you are a sprinter!
When you add more load. The bar will move more slowly, but will still be bouncing a bit of your shoulder. You will now be training power. Your athletic ability. Perfect load for most sports!
When you add even more. The bar moves slow. You are almost grinding it up. You are now close to your 1RM, and in a zone where your maximum strength is trained in an effective way. By using the correlation between velocity and load we can give you the perfect load for your goal. And the best part is: We will choose the optimal load even if your daily form is a bit off!
Feedback on velocity will increase your effort, and the quality of each repetition.
AlphaPWR will give you instant feedback on your lifting velocity and your squatting debt. We use the mean propulsive velocity in the concentric phase in your lift. Feedback that is given right after each repetition has a lot higher value than to look at the score after the set or even watch a video of your lifts. Using our system gives you an edge when it comes to ensure that you are lifting with the highest quality possible. The improving effect on motivation on competitiveness is seen both in male and female lifters when the feedback is given visually. The big screen of the AlphaPWR-system ensures a clear and objective feedback that will give you and your team-mates the best quality of every rep!
Using our Velocity-zones will help you pick the optimal load for each set and workout.
The velocity measured by AlphaPWR can e used to perfectly prescribe the load you should use if your goal of training is either increasing strength, improving power or speed, or increase your muscle mass. It will be a better way of finding the load for your daily form. If you have slept poorly, eaten to little or simply are having a bad day, our system will give you a lighter load. The reason is that your neuromuscular readiness will be reflected in the lifting velocity of the first reps on every set. The way to use the system is to increase the load, set by set until the screen shows the desired quality. Recent research shows that this can be superior to standard static percentage based programs or even subjective RIR-based Autoregulation programs. This tool can be an effective tool for sports combining concurrent strength and endurance training, and also be used at a way of indirectly but accurate estimate 1RM without the hazard of doing an actual maximal test. For more advanced athletes the use of an individualized Load/Velocity profile will be even more beneficial. For everybody who wants to get stronger, more powerful and faster without injuries and fatigue, this is the way to go.
The use of drop in velocity will guide you to your perfect training volume.
The drop of velocity both during a set and during a workout is closely connected to the state of your neuromuscular system. To stop your set before you reach failure will both increase your strength, power, speed and athletic quality, with less fatigue, and shorter rest needed both between sets and workouts. Almost too good to be true. Research have shown superior increases in strength with 60-70% less repetitions done. To train hard enough but not too hard is the key to both performance and to stay injury free over time. Just follow the AlphaPWRs traffic light system. Lit hard as long as you have a green light, push even harder when you see yellow and stop when the light is red. Simple and effective.
