  • Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning – Part 2

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/01/2022

    How to Progress From Here? Although we have explored Relative Intensity (RI), Deducted Intensity (DI), Reps In Reserve (RIR), and Percent of Max Reps (%MR) approach in the previous part, I am not going to tell you which one to use. What I will do instead, is to explore further how these can be used to create progression...

  • Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning – Part 1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 20/12/2021

    Prescribing strength training is indeed tricky. Things tend to vary across lifts/movements, individuals, gender, rep ranges, types of programs, splits, and so forth. But we are not completely clueless. Find out the potential solution in the following article.

  • Predicting Non-contact Hamstring Injuries by Using Training Load Data and Machine Learning Models

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 17/12/2018

    Research has shown that there is an association between training load and likelihood of suffering non-contact injuries. But can we predict the injury? In this paper I have tried to predict non-contact hamstring injury by using two seasons day-to-day training load data.

  • Team Management – Part 1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 25/09/2018

    In these video series I will expand and continue the discussion on the best practices one can utilize to solve (or help solving) management issues. First part of this video series goes into the agile concepts, setting goals using the OKR and importance of clearly defined meeting types (daily-stand-up and 1-on-1s are more deeply explained).

  • Simple Sensitivity Analysis with R

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/09/2018

    A sensitivity analysis is a technique used to determine how different values of an independent variable impact a particular dependent variable under a given set of assumptions. This technique is used within specific boundaries that depend on one or more input variables, such as the effect that changes in interest rates have on bond prices.

  • Interview with Darcy Norman

    Darcy just got back from World Cup with Die Mannschaft – German National A Team (Men) and he was more than kind enough to answer my nagging questions. I want to take this opportunity and thank Darcy Norman for everything he has done for me and the community and I wish him all the best in the future endeavors.

  • Data Preparation for Injury Prediction

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 23/08/2018

    I have recently wrote a technical note (actually a video) for Sport Performance and Science Reports journal regarding Data Preparation for Injury Prediction. Both data and R core are available on GitHub repository.

  • Do We Need to Perform a Cool-Down After Exercise?

    By on 05/08/2018

    Many recreational and professional athletes frequently perform 5-15 minutes of low to moderate intensity exercises or movements after their training or competition in an attempt to improve recovery and hereby enhance subsequent performance and reduce injuries. This recovery method is widely known as a cool-down.

  • Three Different Aspects of Training Load Monitoring

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 21/06/2018

    In 2014 I wrote Training Load Monitoring – Seeing the Big Picture where I have outlined a simple model for training load monitoring. In this video, I am expanding that model as well as modifying it to depict my current thought process regarding the topic.
