  • Physical Preparation for Team Sports: Weekly Plans [Part 5]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 29/04/2017

    What to do when? In the recent years I started looking at the warm-up not as “separate” part of the workout that has it’s own objectives, but as something that CAN and SHOULD be done at that current state of the organism that helps you reach workout and training objectives, while preparing you for the work to come.

  • Anti-glycolytic Training for Crossfit?

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/04/2017

    I accidentally stumbled upon Strongfirst For Crossfit article, which I urge you to read. Without going into the study design, although I would love to recommend the author to try to make the same analysis using Magnitude-based approach and maybe split the athlete to low-, med- and high-level to see if there are differences in training effect, I wanted...

    Strengths/Weaknesses - The concept of strength and weaknesses is a bit abstract, but it can guide our decision making when planning out the micro-cycle. It is most frequently related to team tactics and game plan (strategy), but it can be applied to other training components/buckets (technical, physical, mental, etc) as well.

    The dissection of the training week (microcycle) and distinction into recovery, loading and taper mini-blocks is of course artificial and represents a simple “jig” to be used to make decision making easier.

  • ‘Catch’ Orientated Hamstring Exercises

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 05/04/2017

    Hamstring exercises are usually overlooked in majority of programming, particularly at the end stage rehab, but they are extremely important and should not be neglected.

  • Physical Preparation for Team Sports: Weekly Plans [Part 2]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 04/04/2017

    After we have planned and scheduled for the recovery and taper mini-block, what is left we can use for loading mini-block. Depending on the duration of the microcycle, the loading mini-block can have different lengths, usually from 2-4 days. In the case where we have ...

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part2

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 02/04/2017

    Priority lifts - Because we are going to differ between different exercise categories and give them priorities, I hope that calling this method priority lifts was a smart idea. If you think it is not, feel free to contact me and curse me.
