Video Analysis

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am fooling around with some video analysis software - see here:  http://ironstrong.org/topic/2838-squat-critiqueadvice/?do=findComment&comment=312226

Now I am not qualified to critique anyone's form so I'm not sure how useful this is - but playing with the software is fun.  

Unfortunately the video in the example is not ideal so I am looking for other examples.  Ideally these should be taken from the side, directly in line with the lifter at about hip height and preferably without anything obscuring the view.  From this, I can look at the bar path, the speed of the bar up and down, the angles of the back, hip, knee and ankle, etc. I can also convert the video to slow mo.

Again, not sure if anyone would find this useful, but if so feel free to post a video.

Mods - if this is better in the form check thread please move it.

Cheers

Dave

So, what software are you using?  I am intrigued.

Its open source software called Kinovea - you can download it from here: http://www.kinovea.org/

It's pretty cool when you get your head around it - there are some good introductory tutorials on You Tube too.

OK.  I think I've heard of that before.
