Just some of the things that have failed to be taken into account though are the bodyweights of the individuals. If person A, lifts 120kg and weighs 120kg then they are essentially lifting a 1:1 ratio. Person two, who lifts 100kgs but only weighs 80kg in bodyweight is actually 1.2:1 making their lift more impressive.
Then age, gender, height and in some cases anthropometric measurements also need to be accounted for to get a truly accurate picture of which lift was the best.
All of the assessments work in the same way, some are calculated in power output (watts per kilo) others speed, distance or time. Some will place you in a heavyweight or lightweight category depending on your bodyweight, which can hugely vary the expected result. It’s for these reasons that Archon has taken so long to develop and why we were so careful about whom we’ve let see it and whom we haven’t.
Do you need to know anymore about the algorithms? No. You just need to know that every time you type in yours or your clients results there are a million different equations going on in the background so that in this case we are doing the heavy lifting so that you or your clients don’t have to.
