In this video I am presenting my “solution” to the problem and provide fake data set, as well as R code for analyzing the data. Having decent predictive model can help us run different optimization algorithms to find the “best” scheduling to minimize/maximize injury risk or performance.

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.

Hopefully I managed to create readable narrative.

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: 1) Control system is hierarchycally organized on couple of levels; 2) There is a feed-back that connects lower parts with higher parts of control system, which is used...

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…

I’ve always been a bit of a tech head and fascinated with technology, long before I got into sports. Makes sense considering my initial career path was as a games developer before the path I neded up choosing. Even during my time at a Premier League football club, I tried ...
