  • Banister Impulse~Response model in R [part 2]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 18/10/2014

    In the previous part I’ve introduced multivariate modeling of impulse and response using Banister model. In this part I will continue with exploration of this model, mainly visualizing reaction predicted by the model on standardize impulse (load) and compare prediction using multiple impulses. I will use same data sets: one by Skiba and one randomly generated as in first…

  • Banister Impulse~Response Model in R [Part 1]

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 14/10/2014

    Banister Impulse~Response Model in R Before you start reading this post, please read EXCELLENT paper by Clark and Skiba, especially on the topic of Banister impulse-response model. I decided to write code in R, but also allow for multivariate analysis (where impulse can be multiple variables, as is the case in sports) which can speed the thing...

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/09/2014

    In the previous post I’ve shared the novel idea on how to ‘aggregate’ wellness categories into positive/negative wellness score.

    In this video, I go over the usual problems of calculating total Wellness from different categories and I present a new way to calculate total wellness score that is more sensitive.

  • Couple Ideas to Make AMS Products Better

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 06/07/2014

    Couple Ideas to Make AMS Products Better Here are couple of ideas/random thoughts to make Athlete Management Software (e.g SMARTABASE, EDGE10) better. AMS should be simple as possible. If one can’t use it, if it takes too much time to learn it, or it is not intuitive, then what’s the point? Bragging on how much you paid for it?...

  • The Problems of National Team Training and the Solution

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 03/07/2014

    First off let me be clear – I have never been involved in national team preparation. Nevertheless, I would like to pinpoint to some issues that I believe are troublesome.

  • How to create individualized exercise profile in strength training? Part 2: Load/Velocity Profile

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/06/2014

    I am repeating the data from the previous part before I start with the analysis and visualization. As you can see my 1RM in bench press with ~2-sec pause is 117.5kg and Ivan’s is 140kg.

  • How to Create Individualized Exercise Profile in Strength Training (Part 1): Testing

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 08/06/2014

    When it comes to traditional strength training prescription (a.k.a percent based approach) one uses his latest 1RMs and prescribe 3 to 4, or longer strength training cycle using percentages and reps (e.g. Week1: 5×5 w/80%, Week2: 5×5 w/82.5%, Week3: 5×5 w/85%).

  • Results of Athlete Management Software (AMS) Survey

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 20/05/2014

    Approximately a month ago I have emailed a lot of prominent coaches and sport scientists a survey form to rate their experience with AMS products and  also rate/describe their needs. The goal of the survey was to improve the experience with AMS products by giving their manufactures some form of feedback, but also share common issues between the users....

  • Spider Charts Sucks!

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 07/05/2014

    Spider Charts Sucks! I am openly sharing my opinion (backed up with work by Stephen Few) that spider charts sucks. It is time for the sport scientists to move away from PES (Pro Evolution Soccer; game on Sony Playstation) and similar games influencing how we visualize athlete profiles. Let’s assume we have a movement screen scores and we want...
