  • 5/3/1 Forever [Book Review]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/06/2017

    I have been following work by Jim Wendler since I started my career as strength and condi-tioning coach, and his 5/3/1 book series have been very influential on me and my strength programming.

  • Anti-glycolytic Training for Crossfit?

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/04/2017

    I accidentally stumbled upon Strongfirst For Crossfit article, which I urge you to read. Without going into the study design, although I would love to recommend the author to try to make the same analysis using Magnitude-based approach and maybe split the athlete to low-, med- and high-level to see if there are differences in training effect, I wanted...

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part 3

Synonyms with concurrent are parallel and mixed training.

  • Daily Undulating Framework (DUF)

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/09/2016

    After a long “battle” with Daily Undulating Periodization/Planning/Programming term, I decided to name it to DUF – Daily Undulating Framework, or just Undulating Framework (UF). The most recent video Planning and Programming Strength Training Using DUP Approach created a bit of confusion, because some viewer saw it as “system” or a “solution”, where I wanted to pinpoint to it...

    In this video I am presenting a framework that could be utilized in planning and programming strength training. It is based on utilizing daily undulating periodization/planning (DUP), but it gives it a bit bigger picture, as well as utilizing ideas from Agile/Scrum.
