  • Team Management – Part 1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 25/09/2018

    In these video series I will expand and continue the discussion on the best practices one can utilize to solve (or help solving) management issues. First part of this video series goes into the agile concepts, setting goals using the OKR and importance of clearly defined meeting types (daily-stand-up and 1-on-1s are more deeply explained).

  • How to Deal With Unpredictable Clients/Athletes (The Agile Way)

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/02/2018

    I am sure that most of you encountered the following (frustrating) situation – you do your best to create custom workout for your client/athlete, and then they bail on you, skip the trainings or do the workouts in the order that suits them best (in their own opinion).

  • Why The Concept of Biomotor Abilities is Bullshit

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 23/01/2018

    In my opinion, biomotor abilities are ‘dimension reduction’ of the complex perceptual-motor space. Suppose we perform 500 various tests of performance for at least 5000 athletes.

  • Managing Teams With Trello

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/10/2017

    I am pretty certain that the first one to suggest using Trello (somewhere in 2013) was Jose Fernandez from Houston Astros. Jose is pretty much technology clairvoyant. Another person that directed me to use Paul Dijkstra et al. five-color health and performance risk grading system 1 (see the below picture) was Brian Green from USA Rugby Sevens. We keep...

  • Managing the High Performance Teams [Part2]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 01/10/2017

    Unfortunately, or luckily, in High Performance Teams, there are multiple coaches that need to be consulted for the optimal schedule (and its changes). Besides, if we follow the ideas of the Agile Periodization, then we are constantly updating the plan in iterative manner, and these updates need to be the result of the Sprint meetings. This demands that the...

  • Managing the High Performance Teams [Part1]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/09/2017

    When you are a single coach in the private sector and you are dealing with few athletes, it is much easier to get organized. But when you are a part of the big machine such as High Performance team, where there might be multiple coaches, PTs, medical doctors, sports scientists, nutritionists and so forth, getting organized is of utmost...

  • Physical Preparation for Team Sports: Functional Groups

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 17/09/2017

    Without being able to come up with more appropriate name, functional groups relate to the current training status of the athlete (i.e. away, national team, injured, available, etc) and whether they played the previous match or are they going to play the next one. This makes planning a bit easier for the coach, although there are going to be...

  • Undulating Mixed Strength Program

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 20/08/2017

    This program represents “park bench” workout (see works by Dan John) and it is quite usable for someone putting the same emphasis on each exercise, while hitting wide rep ranges and avoiding boredom at the same time. Therefore, it is very usable for off-season “sporadic” workouts (someone who hits the gym 2-4 times per week in haphazard manner).

    I had been recently interviewed by my friend and coach Mark Lajhner for his MMACoach.net website. After the practice we have sat and video recorded my answers to a few questions Mark prepared.
