One fine day in the office, I heard from refill that a product test was being administered with our beloved Guiafitness testers. It was a sensor-type product that gave you interesting data for your strength training.
So much for the two terms that generated my greatest curiosity, but the curiosity of those who do not know or move around these fields. The beginner's curiosity.
I, a casual product tester at Running alone, am not as familiar with strength training at the gym or with weights.
But because of an injury, and under the direction of my trainer and physiotherapist, I have been incorporating more seriously the training of functional strength and proprioception.
So I thought: since when I go out for a run my GPS and fatigue partner tells me everything I want to know at the end of my running training, will I be able to get another kind of data with this sensor in my functional training sessions?
So I gave it a lot of thought and volunteered for the Beast Sensor test myself.
What is Beast Sensor?
A sensor weighing around thirty-five grams with a very CrossFit design and aesthetics. It is charged via USB. It is best to charge it once a week or every 15 days, depending on the training sessions. It would be enough for me to charge it once every couple of weeks, it theoretically works for about eight hours and I don't usually do more than two strength training sessions a week.
We visualize the data through a PPP because it has no screens. My first doubt is whether it would exist for IOS, and I had no problem with it, we will find it in IOS and Android.
This time they give it to us with a textile bracelet. But there is also a free vest to put it on. Another alternative that seems to me quite practical is to place it on the bars or dumbbells, because it is magnetic. In my case it's not necessary because I use my anatomical weight, but it's good to know.
Here we can see an explanation of the first steps to follow with Beast Sensor:
What is the purpose of this sensor?
Here I had the first block and I recognize that I asked for help and also information from the Beast Sensor team. And I lie because I think it is essential to review the team that exists behind a product and brand, its personality affirms you a lot of the product.
This time the experience has been very positive, while I have had infinite help and feedback.
I decide then to focus the test for a beginner profile that is started in strength training. Stressing that, although it is common to achieve positive results in the short term, there is a phase of insecurity that affects the progression.
Perfect, since we're going to try to deal with this inconvenience. The main reason is the lack of activation of the muscle being worked, apart from mobility problems. We don't use exactly the same old schemes: we need to administer different stimuli.
What Beast offers is exactly the necessary data to have the best awareness of the exercise carried out based on a very clear principle, which I think is prescriptive, the VBT.
But I think I've already given you a lot of information to digest today. In the following article I will talk in detail about what the VBT is and how I have done it with the help of Beast Sensor, don't miss it!
