The purpose of this study was to use a wifi accelerometer to record training loads, and to provide trainers with real-time feedback with a view to increasing training efficiency. An accelerometer was attached to the wrist joint of an individual performing a bench press movement and raw accelerations collected. The MR3.3system was used to record data and to filter the signal using a smoothing algorithm. The number of repeated operations, the speed of movement and intensity, were parameters analyzed as important indexes for developing smart wearable devices for future use. The accelerometer developed in this study can establish a system of work-outs, using real-time training parameters as feedback to enable individual's to increase work-out efficiency.
