  • William Sands on Athlete Monitoring

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 17/03/2017

    William Sands is a true pioneer in sport science and has been doing this “monitoring” thing while some of us were still pissing in diapers. He recently co-authored very interesting paper (see below) and was kind enough to post a recent video on his YouTube channel.

  • Working on a Book

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 15/03/2017

    Working on a Book In 2007, after my first professional gig with FK RAD, I wrote a summary of my thoughts regarding physical preparation in soccer in one PDF created in Microsoft PowerPoint. In 2010/2011, after returning from Boston, and after starting the Complementary Training blog, I wrote the updated version on this manual. It started as a series of blog...

    In this episode, Coach Wilmot demonstrates how you can further progress your athletes by contrasting vertical force with unilateral movements. Lachlan introduces Katie to a rear foot elevated squat and discusses some of the reasons behind this technique for promoting unilateral loading.

  • Netflix Prize and Injury Prediction Prize

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/03/2017

    The Netflix Prize was an open competition for the best collaborative filtering algorithm to predict user ratings for films, based on previous ratings without any other information about the users or films, i.e. without the users or the films being identified except by numbers assigned for the contest. Which made me think – why don’t the “rich” clubs, such...

  • Uncertainty, Heuristics and Injury Prediction

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 07/03/2017

    I was asked by Rod Whiteley and Nicol van Dyk to contribute to the Aspetar Journal targeted topic issue that just got released off the press. I tried to combine my knowledge of predictive analytics, machine learning, philosophy of science, heuristics and practical experience as coach & sport scientist into one article. Hopefully I managed to create readable narrative.

  • Plyometric Progression with Coach Wilmot | Part 5

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 07/03/2017

    In episode 5, Coach Wilmot demonstrates some more complex training and pairing exercises to progress your athletes.

  • Power BI Course for Sport Scientists – Video 1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 04/03/2017

    I decided to create a course for sport scientists, to get you started with PowerBI. My bet is that PowerBI will become new Excel (if not already) and having the skills needed to produce reports will be needed as Excel skills are needed now. So, knowing how to learn PowerBI will put you ahead of the curve and...
