App options to fit your Velocity-Based Training (VBT) needs
It is the feedback that counts, and we recognize velocity-based training (VBT) means different things to different people.  The Bar Sensei offers two app reporting options to fit your needs and requirement of training detail.



A2P SPORT App digs in a bit deeper and was purpose built for the team environment.  Quick profile change out as the athletes rotate through, the basics plus deeper metrics like POP-100 & eccentric speed, easily adjust load & exercise selections.   



A2P SPEED App cuts right to the chase -- no log-ins, no load, just quick bar speed outputs.  Great option for a daily readiness assessment, or some athlete competition. 

Use one or use them interchangeably.  Don't worry, Assess2Perform does not charge monthly or annual software subscription fees, you get what you pay for up-front and all app updates are included with your purchase.

Mounted directly on the barbell in a rugged slim-line neoprene sleeve, the Bar Sensei offers a "direct" measure of barbell performance.  You are free to adjust the Bar Sensei placement depending on the lift, athlete size, or grip position.  We increased battery capacity by 60% and include a configurable auto sleep-mode to keep the Bar Sensei where it belongs (on the bar) to minimize the logistics of charging.

NSCA Coaches Conference, Jan 2017 -- introducing the new A2P SPORT App, Bar Sensei and deadlift exercise.   VBT outputs of peak speed, avg speed, and POP-100 are displayed.


We offer a growing list of exercise protocols to fit the main lifts associated with barbell performance feedback and velocity based training.  No, it is not a numbers game for us to see how large the list can be; rather, we focus on a core group of lifts that offer valuable VBT feedback. And within those core lifts, our pledge is to lead with innovative metrics that make a difference.  

Today's exercise list includes bench press, squat, hang clean, deadlift, snatch, and power clean.  As this list grows, your Bar Sensei purchase includes all  new additions and app upgrades.
