The GymAware Cloud Pro offers a variety of reports to best suit how you would like to visualise your data. Whether it be longitudinal, comparison or 1RM prediction, it can all be easily done with a few clicks.
In this article, we've listed a few highlights on the reports most used by coaches.
(Refer to our How to Create a Report article if you are unsure how to get started)
1. Trend Comparison Report
This report is useful for longitudinal analysis of data. As you track your athletes through the year, peaks or decline in data could be indicators on an athlete's overall performance.
Individual Trend Comparison
Exercise Trend Comparison for Individuals
Squad Trend Comparison
2. Single Parameter Trend
This report is useful for coaches that want to track one weight across a period of time to see the progress relative to velocity in this example. We can see the change in velocity with a specific load especially if coaches would like to track next day performance to set the velocity target.
With the example below, this athlete shows a decrease in the last session squatting at 130 lb, this could be an indication of fatigue or other stressors in life which could make the athlete more injury prone. The coach could use this report to increase the velocity target at the next training session to see if that would increase her performance.
3. Difference Analysis
Coaches are able to track changes via percentage in performance between dates for each exercise with this report. This report can be used to compare performances between athletes, the squad or specific individual athletes. This report gauges the magnitude of change between sessions.
4. Exercise Comparison
This report provides an overview of selected exercises for individual athletes with the option of 4 parameters that are changeable depending on the coaches needs.
Being able to compare selective parameters between exercises might be able to present coaches with some insight to an athletes performance for certain exercises.
Based on this graph, coaches are able to compare lower body versus upper body, which provides asymmetry possibilities between lower and upper body in regards to power.
5. Predictive 1RM
Our most popular report would be the Athlete: Predictive 1RM Report.
With the following protocol, you can easily get an estimate of your athlete's 1RM (provided they lift with maximum intent) :
- lift 3-5 sets
- start at 50-60% 1RM (or generate the report starting from that weight to reduce the risk of a larger standard error)
- lift till 0.45 m/s (80-85% 1RM) for prediction accuracy
The recommended exercises would be Squats (MVT 0.30 m/s) or Bench Press (MVT 0.15 m/s)
There are many more reports to select from that can be useful to you and how you would like to visualise your data so feel free to play around with the many options or to book a call with our Cloud Expert to best utilise the Cloud.
