• # Applied Tempo Training For Rugby Athletes [Webinar Replay]

By on 12/11/2016

I have been working a lot recently on implementing tempo training as the primary tool for conditioning my athletes here at Toshiba. This is for a few different reasons: 1) Lack of HR monitors; 2 A need to condition all my guys at once; 3) A lack of off-feet training equipment- if they have to run, it might as...

• # The Dowry Problem

In this video I am solving the famous dowry problem using the simulation in R. It is interesting to see how we can test the assumptions and heuristic easily with simulations.

• # Predicting Injuries Using Banister Model – The Addendum

A year ago I tried to use Banister model to predict injuries, but I recently realized I made an error implementing link function. So, I decided to do one more try and correct the problem.

• # Planning and Programming Strength Training Using DUP Approach

This approach helps me solve some of the planning/programming conundrums and provides pretty simple framework that could be applied to other domains as well (e.g. HIT conditioning). I also touch on Dan John’s Bus Bench vs. Park Bench analogy, which I think is a game changer concept.

• # 6 Weeks Running Program for Soccer Players

I’ve designed a simple 6 weeks running program for soccer, something that you can use with your athletes on the break or have it in your toolbox and apply it if needed in the RTP protocols or as extra conditioning. To make this program more individually tailored, I’ve used MAS – maximum aerobic speed.

• # DUP Program Template Builder v4.0

At this stage I am looking for some structure in my training, but cannot be mentally bothered to follow overly prescriptive powerlifting/powerbuilding template (like 5/3/1, Juggernaut, Starting Strength, etc.). I wanted something that is mentally refreshing, but it still gets me training hard and produce the results. Something that Dan John would call “Punching the clock” workout. The result...

• # Planning the Strength Training – The Addendum

In year 2008 I wrote series of articles about Planning the Strength Training. Back then, my “philosophy” (or should I say model of reality?) was (and I believe still is) highly influenced by Mark Rippetoe’s books: Starting Strength and Practical Programming. It made perfect sense and it represented reasonable model of the strength training process as a whole. Years…

• # Testing and Training Agility in Sports [Part 4]

Agility is defined as an independent motor skill. The previous studies lead to the conclusion that there is very little positive transfer between the straight line speed and agility (i.e. change of direction speed), which basically means that the development of agility requires a specific training.
