Mid thigh pull
A brief introduction to this mode
Pull mode is an Isometric Mid Thigh Pull test. Commonly used in sport science and physiology to test athletes progress in strength.
In order to use the pull mode you need to attach the straps and handle to the MTP attachment point on each side of the AlphaPWR. Simply grab the MTP attachment point and slide it up and attach the hook of the straps.
Use the markings on the straps to adjust the length of the straps. The handles are meant to be placed in the mid thigh height.
Once the straps are attached step onto AlphaPWR to calibrate. After calibration you can grab the handles and pull as hard as you can.
To get the correct measurement for your mid thigh pull, you need to stand as still as possible while AlphaPWR is calibrating. As soon as the calibration is done, the screen will shift to the pull-screen and you can now start pulling.
Get the straps
Make sure you take up the slack and that the straps are hanging straight in the same height before pulling. Remember to keep your back straight when you are pulling.
Time to pull
Pull as hard as you can to see which animal you are.
