  • Set and Rep Schemes – Part 1: Introduction and Horizontal Planning

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/02/2020

    Do you need to reinvent the wheel everytime the strength training program changes? Find out how the ‘modularity’ concept can help you out in the first video instalment of the Set and Rep Schemes series.

  • Extending the Classical Test Theory with Circular Performance Model

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 13/01/2020

    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.

  • Data Preparation for Injury Prediction

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 23/08/2018

    I have recently wrote a technical note (actually a video) for Sport Performance and Science Reports journal regarding Data Preparation for Injury Prediction. Both data and R core are available on GitHub repository.

  • Planning The In-season Microcycle In Soccer Part 9: Revisiting ‘Physical Themes Derived From Tactical Periodisation’

    By 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.

  • On Individualization

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 10/07/2018

    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...

  • Phase Potentiation Is Probably Overrated and Here Is Why

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 28/06/2018

    Phase potentiation is a fancy way of saying that the order of training blocks (phases) matter, in terms of training effect. This principle is pretty much the basis behind periodization (e.g. Bompa’s periodization), especially the Block Periodization Concept, by Vladimir Issurin.

  • Three Different Aspects of Training Load Monitoring

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 21/06/2018

    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.

  • Profiling Issues – Mind Your Target Variable

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 30/05/2018

    This is VERY IMPORTANT concept and if you are doing any type of profiling, I urge you to watch this video.

  • Bootstrap Magnitude Based Predictions (BMBP)

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 20/05/2018

    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 With the video below I wanted to give my opinion, but also provide rationale for “novel” techniques, that...

  • Variable Clustering and Archetypal Analysis

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 08/05/2018

    I believe that the following video and the accompanying R code and data set will be very useful to sport scientists out there and will teach them extremely pragmatic technique in data mining.
