  • Interesting Videos on Moxy

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 11/11/2015

    Moxy Monitor is an oxygen muscle monitor that seems like an interesting technology that could be used to monitor training, but also get a glimpse into “bottle necks” of performance (which in my opinion is the goal of “prescriptive” monitoring). So I think Moxy could be useful, although I never tried it and I am not sure how the…

  • R Playbook: Injury Prediction using Random Forest

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 02/11/2015

    This is the problem I have been wrestling with for some time and I tried to solve it using Bannister model. I even asked for help on Twitter and couple of data scientists suggested taking a look into “functional data analysis” or creating summary variables and performing regression/classification (which I did here).

  • GPS Applications in Team Sports

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 18/10/2015

    This is a webinar I did for Meeting of the Minds Conference organized by Brendan Chaplin in March, 2015. In this webinar I am covering applications of the GPS technology in team sports. It lasts approximately 90minutes and I cover plenty of ground.

  • Agile Planning in Sports Training

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 18/09/2015

    There is another way to look at training planning taking into account “modern” constraints imposed on athletes and coaches, along with managing uncertainty and risk that more traditional approaches suffer from. Find all about this in 40+ min screen cast.

  • Predicting Performance Using Rolling Averages

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 08/09/2015

    I wrote before on using Banister model to predict performance and injury from training load. In the video below I am talking about using rolling averages to predict performance, as well as explaining differences between supervised and unsupervised learning and model overfit. Members can download the Excel workbook below the video and follow the “exercises” and play with the…

    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….

  • “Novel” Metric to Compare Athletes Using Their Load-Velocity Curve

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 15/07/2015

    The question is simple: “What could be used to compare athletes across time and among themselves, taking into account the full load-velocity continuum, but taking into account their strength levels and body weight?”. You can find my answer here

  • 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…

  • Microsoft Applications as Ultimate Athlete Management System

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 07/05/2015

    In the following article I am discussing Microsoft applications that could be used to create Athlete Management software, such as SharePoint Online, PowerBi and so forth. I believe in the months to come Microsoft will strengthen his position as Business Intelligence leader and it is definitely as must to get familiar with the new tools.
