    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/03/2012

    Playing With Statistics Although at the end of part 4 I mentioned I will talk about analysis of frequent tests like sRPE, HRV and other’s that are used for monitoring, I will not do that in this part. Maybe in part 6 because I am still ‘playing~struggling’with that one. What I want to talk today is data...

    Playing With Statistics After a general rant in part 1 I will now try to be more pragmatic. Please note that my knowledge of statistics is basic so don’t be harsh with the comments.

    Playing With Statistics I must admit that my obsession is statistics and variability. Statistics got my attention when I started playing/working in Excel to create monitoring system for my current club utilizing data from Polar Team2. Recently I have seen EXCELLENT presentation from Stuart Cormack regarding monitoring in rugby. They utilize GPS, biochemical monitoring, sRPE and Neuromuscular...

Ground reaction force passes through body’s center of mass (or slightly outside of it causing certain torque around body’s sagital axis) and certain component of it provides the propulsion force.

This is my way to express my gratitude to Howard. Enjoy the links! Preseason: Low volume & always avoiding fatigue? Scientific Poster: Pilot Study – Tracking...

    Interview with Marco Cardinale I would be really surprised that the name Marco Cardinale doesn’t ring a bell if you are in the strength and conditioning field. Marco recently co-edited the book “Strength and Conditioning: Biological Principles and Practical Applications” with Robert Newton and Kazunori Nosaka that got really awesome reviews and feedback from the coaches and researchers I...
