• ### Few Simple Improvements to Monitoring Data Analysis

Most of us are collecting and analyzing training load data and readiness metrics (i.e. GPS training load, sRPE and wellness). The most common analysis method is to use two rolling averages windows – acute (around 7 days) and chronic (around 28 days) and to calculate their ratio, referred to as ACWR (Acute to Chronic Workload Ratio), or TSB (Training...

• ### How to Analyze Training Load and Monitoring Data?

In this video I am explaining two methods to deal with missing values and why you should pay attention to the way you are aggregating data (daily, team averages, body soreness, etc).

Sean Williams was kind enough to provide short review of the recent load monitoring workshop, held at the World Rugby Science Network Conference, as well as to provide full slides and Excel templates. This is tremendous resource for those interested in injury prediction analytics.

• ### To Turf or Not to Turf, That is the Question [Part 2]: Applications

In this video I am deploying the model to make the decision between 5 variations of weekly plan. The goal is to minimize the morning soreness on the day of the game.

• ### To Turf or Not to Turf, That is the Question [Part 1]

In this video I am presenting my “solution” to the problem and provide fake data set, as well as R code for analyzing the data. Having decent predictive model can help us run different optimization algorithms to find the “best” scheduling to minimize/maximize injury risk or performance.

• ### Uncertainty, Heuristics and Injury Prediction

I was asked by Rod Whiteley and Nicol van Dyk to contribute to the Aspetar Journal targeted topic issue that just got released off the press. I tried to combine my knowledge of predictive analytics, machine learning, philosophy of science, heuristics and practical experience as coach & sport scientist into one article. Hopefully I managed to create readable narrative.

• ### [Paper Review] Player Tracking Technology: Half-Full or Half-Empty Glass? Or maybe there is no glass at all.

By on 15/02/2017

Over Christmas, Mladen sent me Bucheit & Simpson (2017) article titled “Player Tracking Technology”, and it could not have been a better timed article, largely discussing a lot of the key points and decisions that we had made over the last few years that matched it. For that reason, I wanted to make this essentially a review of that...

• ### How to Collect Data From Your Athletes by Using FREE Tools

In the video below I am showing you how to easily create survey, send it to the athletes and get their responses directly to Excel. No more paper, copy-pasting and wasting time.
