  • Homoeostasis Performance Model

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 03/07/2016

    Homoeostasis Performance Model is a synthesis between Noakes’s Central Governor Model and Schmidt’s Conceptual Model of Human Performance. Some of the Bernstein’s conclusions about motor controler, who controls human movement, were: 1) Control system is hierarchycally organized on couple of levels; 2) There is a feed-back that connects lower parts with higher parts of control system, which is used...

  • C.I.S.E.I. Principle and Medium-Long Distance Running

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/03/2016

    This is a very old forum post I made in 2006 at CharlieFrancis.com forum. Why I am reposting it? First of all to pull out old stuff under layers of dust, and second to show the difference between utilizing common “aerobic zones” versus using the competitive performance as a prescriptive system.

  • What Is Propensity Matching and How Can We Improve Validity of Causality Claims?

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/03/2016

    Researchers usually try to randomize correctly, but sometimes the effect is not in the treatment, but maybe in the difference between group (pre-treatment) or during the treatment (for example volume of training) which should be similar/same so we can judge the effects of something else of interest (for example novel periodization). The solutions are to involve covariates in the…

  • New Exercise Classification

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/03/2016

    Working alongside Ian “Mackers” McKeown, I wanted to develop a model that provides “method behind the madness” for some exercises and their progressions we/Ian implement(s) in our program.

  • 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.
