  • Substance~Form of Training Process

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 11/06/2011

    Substance~Form of Training Process In my humble opinion this is THE ROOT PROBLEM of training process and influences everything else down the road (hierarchy). This has bothered me since I started coaching education, and recently with the help of Complementary Nature I managed to solve this issue. In the training theory everything revolves around MOTOR ABILITIES and MOTOR SKILLS....

  • Psychology… Effort versus Details

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 10/06/2011

    I was just reading interview with coach Buddy Morris and he made couple of insights on the difference between working with pro athletes and college athletes.

    I am currently reading SST: A Manual For Coaches and it is one of the most awaited books that finally brings ideas from Yuri Verkhoshansky in clear and understanding style. There was a lot of mis-information due bad translations and devil-advocates and this book cleared a lot of issues, at least for me. I am going to do a...

  • Interview with Vern Gambetta

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 01/06/2011

    I have known Vern for couple of years mostly from his writings and books, but luckily I was introduced to Vern last summer in Boston by Carl Valle.

    Riding the wave It is the end of the season, and usually my brain starts to do reflections on what was done both in team training and in my own training (if we can call it that way). The concept that emerged in my head was the concept of riding the wave. This concept has a lot...

  • Problems of the Periodization of Training in Mixed Sports [Part 4]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/05/2011

    Before I start with the characteristics of the competition period, I need to mention one thing first.
