An accurate body weight is critical to ensure high-quality, reliable data for many of the metrics in ForceDecks tests.
- Weighing period;
- Before each test; and
- Between each rep.
Note: Talking, looking around and even chewing gum can cause weight fluctuations, leading to an incorrect bodyweight.
- Weighing – ForceDecks iOS App will automatically determine an individual’s weight from the ‘steady’ period before the first movement/jump.
- Skip Weigh – ForceDecks iOS App will automatically determine an individual’s weight from the steady period before each test and between each rep.
- Note: This is only supported in tests where no any additional weight is being used
To ensure the weight recorded for a test is as accurate as possible, it is strongly recommended that a body weight be taken before recording a test, using the weighing option.
