Squat Bot

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.
