    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/08/2014

  • FREE courses you should take/watch

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 23/07/2014

    These are couple of free (some are not, but it is cheap to buy/rent DVD) courses every human, scientist, manager should see. Not directly related to coaching and training, but provides great ‘complementary’ knowledge and tools. It is also great not to be sheep. I won’t be providing any review for any course – you will just need to...

  • Strength in Motion – Seminar review

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 10/08/2012

    Just a quick heads up and short review of the Strength in Motion seminar by Joel Jamieson, Patrick Ward and Charlie Weingroff.  I guess the title is not adequate, since this seminar deals very little with strength or strength training, but rather it covers advanced concepts of training individualization, monitoring, rehab and prehab strategies, HRV, work capacity, etc.  I...

  • The Ultimate Guide to HRV Training by Joel Jamieson

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 25/07/2012

    The Ultimate Guide to HRV Training by Joel Jamieson This was a long awaited book from Joel, especially if you have already purchased BioForce HRV, since this is the manual that accompany the system and it was slightly delayed because Joel was improving and extending its content.

  • The Juggernaut Method

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/10/2011

    The Juggernaut Method I forgot to mention in yesterday’s Good Reads one really good read:“The Juggernaut Method” by Chad Wesley Smith. It is a strength training system aimed at (advanced) intermediate level lifters that is basically ‘improved’ (if I dare to say it ) Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 system, that also utilize some elements of Block Periodization (only when it...

    First off I am sorry I am for leaving this blog without posts recently. I will try to update it more frequently and maybe start a training journal here, but at this time I don’t want the readers to see my low numbers in the gym. I’ve spent last couple of weeks in Belgrade, currently working with my ex...
