Back to business…

I was quite busy lately and actually on training camp on Cyprus with FC RAD (you can check some of the pics here), thus I was not able to post much (or at all). I have actually met great Roberto Sassi in Larnaca when we played against FC Dynamo from Moscow. He was tracking his players HRs using Polar system.

I am in the process of reading 800+ pages of printed out research and watching excellent video lectures on Performance in Sports involving Intense Exercise, some of which are based on the articles I am just reading. Make sure to watch them!

I was thinking about writing on in-season planning, basically sharing my ideas, but I somehow I don’t feel like writing. Maybe after the season is over I could sum up some of…

Interview with David Tenney

I’ve heard of David Tenney for the first time from my fellow coach and friend Joel Jamieson and I soon realized we share similar training philosophy.

Playing With Statistics [Part 1]
