Crane Scale for measuring ISOs
« on: October 09, 2022, 01:50:08 pm »
I saw a post from Mike Tuchscherer about using a crane scale to measure ISOs force, so I had a quick look around, and these are cheap, from Amazon AU, just $30AUD for one model

edit - this one has a peak hold feature

Any coach that has a limited budget should see the results of the experiment as an entry point into maximal strength testing. Something to consider, however, is the sampling rate of a load cell (i.e. 1000 Hz), as the rate of force production is especially important and can’t be done with a Crane Scale. Still, the use of a crane scale is great for adjusting band tension with accommodating resistance and using it for other estimations of force such as sled loads.
