Measuring the speed of execution of the resistance training exercise using a triaxial accelerometer

Abstract

One of the determining factors for the correct execution of resistance training (RT) is the determination of the resistance, the fatigue generated by the resistance has a direct relation to the execution speed of the exercise. This work aims designing and testing a system to measure the execution speed of the exercise in RT using an accelerometer. The prototype was tested using a pulldown machine. The curve of execution speed of the resistance training was obtained using a mathematical calculation software.
