  • Anti-Glycolytic Training for Crossfit?

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/04/2017

    I accidentally stumbled upon Strongfirst For Crossfit article, which I urge you to read. Without going into the study design, although I would love to recommend the author to try to make the same analysis using Magnitude-based approach and maybe split the athlete to low-, med- and high-level to see if there are differences in training effect, I wanted...

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part 3

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 15/04/2017

    Different types of weekly progressions can be implemented, with or without the unload period. You can use a modified Poliquin accumulation/intensification scheme for ME and DUP for SE to name a few. You could also use narrow pyramids, waves, stages, or whatever crosses your mind that allows an increase in defined goals concurrently and avoids injury and overtraining.

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part2

    Priority lifts - Because we are going to differ between different exercise categories and give them priorities, I hope that calling this method priority lifts was a smart idea. If you think it is not, feel free to contact me and curse me.

  • Concurrent Strategies in Strength Training – Part1

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/03/2017

    Concurrent training by definition means training for achieving multiple training goals at the same time. Concurrent training in iron game was made popular by Westside Barbell Club and Louie Simmons, who erroneously called it ’conjugate’ instead of concurrent. Synonyms with concurrent are parallel and mixed training.

  • Rep Guidelines

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 17/12/2016

    This is a quick and easy table you can use when programming your strength workouts. In comparison to previous version, this table is more streamlined and more simple, plus some Prilepin volume guidelines were added.

  • Daily Undulating Framework (DUF)

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/09/2016

    After a long “battle” with Daily Undulating Periodization/Planning/Programming term, I decided to name it to DUF – Daily Undulating Framework, or just Undulating Framework (UF). The most recent video Planning and Programming Strength Training Using DUP Approach created a bit of confusion, because some viewer saw it as “system” or a “solution”, where I wanted to pinpoint to it...

  • Planning and Programming Strength Training Using DUP Approach

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 10/09/2016

    This approach helps me solve some of the planning/programming conundrums and provides pretty simple framework that could be applied to other domains as well (e.g. HIT conditioning). I also touch on Dan John’s Bus Bench vs. Park Bench analogy, which I think is a game changer concept.

  • DUP Program Template Builder v4.0

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 03/09/2016

    At this stage I am looking for some structure in my training, but cannot be mentally bothered to follow overly prescriptive powerlifting/powerbuilding template (like 5/3/1, Juggernaut, Starting Strength, etc.). I wanted something that is mentally refreshing, but it still gets me training hard and produce the results. Something that Dan John would call “Punching the clock” workout. The result...

  • Planning the Strength Training – The Addendum

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 27/08/2016

    In year 2008 I wrote series of articles about Planning the Strength Training. Back then, my “philosophy” (or should I say model of reality?) was (and I believe still is) highly influenced by Mark Rippetoe’s books: Starting Strength and Practical Programming. It made perfect sense and it represented reasonable model of the strength training process as a whole. Years…

  • More Advanced Daily Undulating Programming

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/06/2016

    In this video I am expanding on the idea of using multiple set and reps schemes across movement patterns under undulating umbrella. For example, how can we utilize undulating approach with the goal of developing hypertrophy for the upper body and strength for the lower body?
