  • Netflix Prize and Injury Prediction Prize

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/03/2017

    The Netflix Prize was an open competition for the best collaborative filtering algorithm to predict user ratings for films, based on previous ratings without any other information about the users or films, i.e. without the users or the films being identified except by numbers assigned for the contest. Which made me think – why don’t the “rich” clubs, such...

  • 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. I tried to combine my knowledge of predictive analytics, machine learning, philosophy of science, heuristics and practical experience as coach & sport scientist into one article. Hopefully I managed to create readable narrative.

  • Power BI Course for Sport Scientists – Video 1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 04/03/2017

    I decided to create a course for sport scientists, to get you started with PowerBI. My bet is that PowerBI will become new Excel (if not already) and having the skills needed to produce reports will be needed as Excel skills are needed now. So, knowing how to learn PowerBI will put you ahead of the curve and...

  • 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...

    Homoeostasis Performance Model is a synthesis between Noakes’s Central Governor Model and Schmidt’s Conceptual Model of Human Performance. Some of the Bernstein’s conclusions about motor controler, who controls human movement, were...

  • C.I.S.E.I. Principle and Medium-Long Distance Running

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/03/2016

    This is a very old forum post I made in 2006 at CharlieFrancis.com forum. Why I am reposting it? First of all to pull out old stuff under layers of dust, and second to show the difference between utilizing common “aerobic zones” versus using the competitive performance as a prescriptive system.

  • What Is Propensity Matching and How Can We Improve Validity of Causality Claims?

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/03/2016

    Researchers usually try to randomize correctly, but sometimes the effect is not in the treatment, but maybe in the difference between group (pre-treatment) or during the treatment (for example volume of training) which should be similar/same so we can judge the effects of something else of interest (for example novel periodization). The solutions are to involve covariates in the…

  • New Exercise Classification

    Working alongside Ian “Mackers” McKeown, I wanted to develop a model that provides “method behind the madness” for some exercises and their progressions we/Ian implement(s) in our program.
