SplitFast uses the power of the iPhone to detect your motion, as well as process, store, and graph your results.
The SplitFast timing system measures and records times with a precision of 0.001 seconds. Laser motion sensing provides accurate and repeatable motion detection at each timing gate. The iPhone accelerometer with configurable sensitivity setting, accurately measures your start reaction time.
SplitFast can be used for Starting block reaction time tests, acceleration, top speed, intermediate split times, agility, lap timing, and endurance training for runners, sprinters, team sports athletes, and cyclists
Race, Flying Start, Shuttle, and Lap
All elements of your performance are recorded. Results can be used for analysis of your strengths and weaknesses, and track your improvement over time.
Lap training mode records lap times for cyclists and long distance athletes.
Maximise you reaction time training with audio starter voice and pistol, with auto arming and random set position delay.
A SplitFast Timing Gate AND tripod weighs only 16 ounces and stands only 8.25" tall. The timing module is 4" x 4" and uses 4 x AA batteries providing over 70 hours of continuous operation!

Muscular strategy shift in human running: dependence of running speed on hip and ankle muscle performance
16 competitive sprinters were selected as subjects. Each having at least 4 years of sprint training behind them. The authors did not give us any idea about the level of the selected athletes though.
This week’s review article examines the relationship between sprint performance over 20 m, with the hang power clean, the hang power clean relative to body weight, 1 RM front squat and a counter movement jump with 40 kg, and finally the same counter movement jump relative to body weight.
