A sensitivity analysis is a technique used to determine how different values of an independent variable impact a particular dependent variable under a given set of assumptions.

Variable Clustering and Archetypal AnalysisBy 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.
Few Simple Improvements to Monitoring Data AnalysisBy Mladen Jovanovic on 22/02/2018
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...
Why The Concept of Biomotor Abilities is BullshitBy Mladen Jovanovic on 23/01/2018
In my opinion, biomotor abilities are ‘dimension reduction’ of the complex perceptual-motor space. Suppose we perform 500 various tests of performance for at least 5000 athletes.
How to Analyze Training Load and Monitoring Data?By Mladen Jovanovic on 21/11/2017
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).
Power BI Course for Sport Scientists – Video 1By Mladen Jovanovic on 04/03/2017
I decided to create a course for sport scientists, to get you started with PowerBI. My bet is that PowerBI will become new Excel (if not already) and having the skills needed to produce reports will be needed as Excel skills are needed now. So, knowing how to learn PowerBI will put you ahead of the curve and...

Coaches and athletes sometime change measurement/testing equipment. The problem is that the estimates from different equipment might differ (and they usually do). There are couple of soutions to this problem...
What Is Propensity Matching and How Can We Improve Validity of Causality Claims?By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/03/2016
Researchers usually try to randomize correctly, but sometimes the effect is not in the treatment, but maybe in the difference between group (pre-treatment) or during the treatment (for example volume of training) which should be similar/same so we can judge the effects of something else of interest (for example novel periodization). The solutions are to involve covariates in the…
