    William Sands is a true pioneer in sport science and has been doing this “monitoring” thing while some of us were still pissing in diapers. He recently co-authored very interesting paper (see below) and was kind enough to post a recent video on his YouTube channel.

  • Uncertainty, Heuristics and Injury Prediction

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 07/03/2017

    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.

Unfortunately (or luckily) a lot of clubs cannot afford 30 units GPS systems, OmegaWave, Dexa scan and you name it. Being on the budget (or no budget), what can you do to be better than nothing?

  • Predicting Injuries Using Banister Model – The Addendum

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 14/10/2016

    Predicting Injuries Using Banister Model – The Addendum A year ago I tried to use Banister model to predict injuries, but I recently realized I made an error implementing link function. So, I decided to do one more try and correct the problem. In the video below I am using three training load metrics (RPE Load, Odometer and High...

  • Interesting Videos on Moxy

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 11/11/2015

    Moxy Monitor is an oxygen muscle monitor that seems like an interesting technology that could be used to monitor training, but also get a glimpse into “bottle necks” of performance (which in my opinion is the goal of “prescriptive” monitoring). So I think Moxy could be useful, although I never tried it and I am not sure how the…
