In this video, I will go more into these details and also provide an extension of this model, which I termed Circular Performance Model (CPM). CPM, in my opinion, better represent performance phenomenology we experience as coaches and athletes.
Planning The In-season Microcycle In Soccer Part 9: Revisiting ‘Physical Themes Derived From Tactical Periodisation’By Hamish Munro on 24/07/2018
Reflection has often (but by no means always) been overlooked and underutilised within the strength and conditioning, sport science and performance enhancement arena. When reflecting back on the presentation I published on our 2015/2016 in-season setup, many things have changed while many haven’t – as is the way in performance enhancement.

In the video below, I am using framework outlined in Three Different Aspects of Training Load Monitoring and provide some thoughts on individualization, especially the fact that individualization can and should be applied on multiple scales, and just because you are using relative training intensities (e.g. %1RM, %MAS) or relative training load (e.g. volume of running expressed as...

In 2014 I wrote Training Load Monitoring – Seeing the Big Picture where I have outlined a simple model for training load monitoring. In this video, I am expanding that model as well as modifying it to depict my current thought process regarding the topic.

There has been a lot of fuss regarding Magnitude Based Inference (MBI) lately, peaking with the recent article and video by Kristin Sainani. The originators of MBI, Will Hopkins and Alan Batterham, recently posted their commentary of the critiques at sportsci.org. With the video below I wanted to give my opinion, but also provide rationale for “novel” techniques, that...
