Squat Bot removes any question of whether your squat was below depth.
Squat Bot was my first major project.
I was annoyed with the state of powerlifting discourse. Specifically discussions about whether a lifter had hit squat depth or not.
So I decided to try and solve the issue using software (of course!). I threw together a landing page with some images and an FAQ. Then I posted it to the /r/powerlifting subreddit where it got some praise.
Most of the time on the project was spent developing my machine learning skills. I got some cool results - but it wasn’t good enough to solve the problem.
The project was killed a few months after starting once I realised that the problem was actually pretty damn difficult to solve, in addition to the fact that the potential market for this problem was super small.
Join my journey by subscribing to my list and I'll let you know when I do interesting stuff (less than once per month).
