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…

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.

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.

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,…

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…

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.

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.

GPS Training in Team Sports Implications for Coaching On Friday, 27th March I will be giving a webinar on GPS use in team sports at Brendan Chaplin’s “Meeting of the Minds” 2015 Conference. I have written a bit on making sense on GPS data, but in this webinar I plan expanding further and covering things such as: Drills classification...
