  • The Juggernaut Method

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/10/2011

    The Juggernaut Method I forgot to mention in yesterday’s Good Reads one really good read:“The Juggernaut Method” by Chad Wesley Smith.

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 25/10/2011

    This is awesome blog by Steve Magness. I was really enjoying reading some entries (see below). It is really refreshing to read about some real life training and coaching instead of listening to HIIT oriented research and coaches (yes, CrossFit-ers) about the importance VO2max and VO2max intervals all the freakin’ time.

  • Sharpening the Saw

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 28/08/2011

    Sharpening the Saw Just a quick blog entry today. I have just found another great analogy for a training situation I encounter very frequently.

  • Random Thoughts From the Training Camp [Part 1]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/06/2011

    Random Thoughts From the Training Camp When I was at the training camp (pre-season) with FK RAD we had a new head coach who was very pedantic and systematic. I really loved his style of coaching and I think I learned a lot from him. He showed me the best posible solutions of combining small-sided games (SSG),...
