Keep It Simple, Stupid (and Short)By Mladen Jovanovic on 29/12/2010
Don’t get into details of the plan too much, since I didn’t manage to put it into use. Why? Because I haven’t seen the athletes before making it, who were young girls that did not need such an “advanced” and complex planning at the first place.
Analysis of Reactive Training SystemsBy Mladen Jovanovic on 28/12/2010
Although I have promised in Periodization confusion article that I am going to make a real-world practical example on planning the preparatory period for 8-weeks long pause between two halves of the soccer season, I am first going to make another example by ‘disecting’ Reactive Training System (RTS) by MikeTuchscherer based on the slides and material from Progressive Powerlifting…
Periodization Confusion?By Mladen Jovanovic on 25/12/2010
I have recently been reading Transfer of Training (Volume 2) by Dr Anatoly Bondarchuk and watching video(s) by Derek Evely. To understand their classification of training systems it is necessary to understand the classification of the exercises based on the specificity criteria. Thus, Bondarchuk identified four groups of exercises/methods.
Frame of referenceBy Mladen Jovanovic on 24/12/2010
Frame of Reference Take an acceleration phase in sprinting for an example. Ground reaction force passes through body’s center of mass (or slightly outside of it causing certain torque around body’s sagital axis) and certain component of it provides the prop ulsion force. The bigger the propulsion force, the greater the acceleration. The body inclination can affect this, but to get...

Seminarski rad koji sam napisao negde u Aprilu 2010. godine pre nego sam napisao Planning and programming of training in sport games. Neki grafovi su posle modifikovani i dorađeni.

Website of the YearBy Mladen Jovanovic on 20/12/2010

Exercise ObsessionBy Mladen Jovanovic on 19/12/2010
Exercise Obsession I remember when I started my coaching education and becoming professionally interested into sport training (don’t confuse this with watching sports) I was obsessed with individual exercises. I was thinking which one was better, harder, puke inducing, etc. Which one should be done all the time, which one was better choice. Over time, I started being more interested into...
Strengths~WeaknessesBy Mladen Jovanovic on 17/12/2010
Strengths~Weaknesses Should athletes work on improving their weaknesses OR emphasizing their strengths in the training process? The answer to this question is of course it depends. The relationship between organism~environment determines the strengths and the weaknesses of the athletes. Based on the evaluation of the strengths and the weaknesses training goals are proposed. The question is again should we...
