Hey Ben, here was a paper looking at profiles during the bulgarian split squat:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5968963/

Not sure there is a ton of data out there on normative cut-offs or how much asymmetry is “acceptable”, as these things likely depend on the exercise examined, how it’s measured, how asymmetry is defined, etc.

But generally, the nuts and bolts of the actual profile wouldn’t be much different. Pick a movement that is stable enough to standardize range of motion and technique, ensure maximal concentric intent, and observe the “behavior” (velocity or force) at various loads. A smith machine is likely your best bet for repeatable movements.
