  • Novel Strength Metric: Video interview with Robert Frederick

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 10/09/2017

    I stumbled on Robert Frederic by accident, probably through Facebook. So, after exchanging few messages with him, I decided to do a video interview and a Q&A regarding the “exertion load” metric, as well as his app. We have also touched a bit on Velocity Based Training concepts. Enjoy this video and please leave your comments and questions on...

  • VBT, Heuristics and Prilepin

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/08/2017

    In this video I am discussing few ideas regarding velocity based training. If you are interested in VBT topics, as well as the connection to Prilepin table, this is a must watch video.

  • 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).

  • Framework for Analyzing & Planning Strength Training: Progression vs Adaptation

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 23/07/2017

    I wanted to expand Framework for Analyzing & Planning Strength Training video with extra discussion on differences between progression and adaptation, which I also consider to be complementary pair, that are inter-related.

  • Framework for Analyzing & Planning the Strength Training

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 16/07/2017

    What does this video attempts to do is to reconcile everything written about above using few very simple tools. That way, it represents very pragmatic and agile tool for planning and analyzing strength training programs.

  • 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

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 15/04/2017

    Different types of weekly progressions can be implemented, with or without the unload period. You can use a modified Poliquin accumulation/intensification scheme for ME and DUP for SE to name a few. You could also use narrow pyramids, waves, stages, or whatever crosses your mind that allows an increase in defined goals concurrently and avoids injury and overtraining.

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part2

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 02/04/2017

    Priority lifts - I openly admit it. This is my favorite approach to concurrent strength training. I don’t know if anyone called it priority lifts before me or if anyone knows what the hell I’m talking about here, but I’ve called it that somehow. Because we are going to differ between different exercise categories and give them priorities, I...

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/03/2017

    Concurrent training by definition means training for achieving multiple training goals at the same time. Concurrent training in iron game was made popular by Westside Barbell Club and Louie Simmons, who erroneously called it ’conjugate’ instead of concurrent. Synonyms with concurrent are parallel and mixed training.
