  • Predicting Injuries Using Banister Model

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/08/2015

    Can we predict individual injuries from training load?
    Watch the video to find out more.

  • Workbook: Change Point Analysis of HRV Data

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 02/08/2015

    What is Change Point Analysis and why and how can you use it to help you out to make sense of your monitoring data? Find out more….

  • Training Stress Balance: Adjusting the Training Load

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 17/06/2015

    This is a follow up on the recent posts regarding Training Stress Balance (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). In this post I discuss a way to adjust (cumulative) chronic training load using training monotony and ratio between Acute Training Load and Chronic Training Load.

    I believe that this method should be used to provide some context for the training…

  • Horizontal~Vertical Variations in Strength Training

    If you are interested in Daily Undulating Periodization, strength training, variability and periodization in general, you will find this video interesting. I welcome all the comments and critiques.

  • Planning and Programming of Training in Sport Games

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/05/2015

    I wrote this article in May 2010 and I believe it is one of the best articles I ever wrote, at least when it comes to skill training in team sports / sport games. Hence, I believe it demands republishing.

  • Random Thoughts on Skill Acquisition and Practice

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/05/2015

    Are you familiar with Block, Random, Fixed and Variable practices? Which one is the best for skill acquisition and retention? What about practicing under fatigue? Find the answers in this short random-thoughts article

  • Velocity-Based Training: Signal vs. Noise

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 29/04/2015

    This is a R workbook using my older bench press data, in which I want to discuss Signal vs. Noise of Velocity-Based Training (VBT) measurements. This could be used for future reliability studies. The goal is to compare within-individual variations of velocity over load-velocity relationship (noise) with smallest practical velocity difference (in my opinion difference in velocities across nRM,…

  • Training Stress Balance Workbook Con’t

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/03/2015

    In the previous video I was talking about two different methods of calculating Training Stress Balance and underlying assumptions. In this short addendum I will explain even better method of calculating TSB by combining good parts of previous two, discuss differences between calculus of TSB for “daily data” (e.g. training load) versus “occasional data” (e.g. HRV, readiness metrics) and…

  • Training Stress Balance: Two Methods of Calculation and Assumptions

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 07/03/2015

    In this blog post I will share with you the Excel workbook you can play with, and also the screen cast of me explain how to use the TSB method. I am also discussing different pro’s and con’s of two very similar ways of calculating Chronic and Acute Load and their assumptions.

  • How to Easily Make Sense of Your Training Load Data Using TSB

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 02/03/2015

    Training Stress Balance (TSB) is a concept I first heard of in Training and Racing with Power Meter by Allen and Coggan in 2010 and I immediately found it very interesting and tried to implementing couple of times. Learn how to implement it in this article.
