  • ‘Non-Periodized Programs’ – Are They Really Non-Periodized?

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 20/08/2012

    Recent blog post regarding the Percent-reps chart and the talk with the Donnell Boucher and Brijesh Patel on the topic of „relative intensity“ got me thinking about the post I did in June – Random Thoughts from the Training Camp. It is funny how things go round-n’-round: I have been looking for the practical solution of the conceptual...

  • Percent – Repetitions Chart

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 18/08/2012

    Percent-Repetition Chart I was looking to create a neat percent-repetitions table for the quick reference when I compare various percent-based and auto-regulatory programs out there.

  • Blog re-design…

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 08/08/2012

    I decided to give my blog a new look, since the old one looked like a ‘spiritual’ site rather than sport (science) blog. You may notice that I change the templates over time until I find one that fits in terms of colors and readability. If you have any input on this please let me know. Besides this I...

  • An Athlete Guide to Chronic Knee Pain

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 01/08/2012

    Anthony’s approach is based on multiple paradigms that are now available – trigger points, stretching the quads, hip flexors and hip rotators, glute activation, movement re-patterning, foot mechanics etc. You might be familiar with all of these already, but in Anthony’s book you can find all of those at one spot and easy to follow program that utilize all...
