    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.

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 29/01/2017

    I’ve designed a simple 6 weeks running program for soccer, something that you can use with your athletes on the break or have it in your toolbox and apply it if needed in the RTP protocols or as extra conditioning.
