The Best of Complementary Training in 2016

The 2016 was a weird year I must say – there were some major changes in my life, but I must admit I was quite prolific with Complementary Training writing and I managed to finally outline some of my ideas in a concrete form. I’ve outlined some of my ideas regarding Agile Periodization, Daily Undulating Framework, improved my skills in R and predictive modeling, sketched the scheduling and survey app that is in the making (and should be available hopefully before March, 2017) and should help coaches a lot in organizing sessions, groups of athletes and collecting subjective data from the athletes. There is definitely nothing similar on the market as we speak.

Sometimes I feel I did the jack shit, but once you enlist all the things you managed to do, I do feel much more productive (and a bit proud). I hope too keep up with this pace in 2017, but I must admit that I am more and more struggling with my neo-generalist nature (thanks to Stuart McMillan for suggesting the book which I started reading). I will focus more on starting the LLC and developing couple of apps, and I am afraid that something will have to give.

Daily Undulating Framework (DUF)

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…

Agile Periodization: Concepts and Ideas

Continuing on the topic of Agile Planning, I made a more “practical” video about concrete applications in performance environment. In this video I’ve utilized Dave Snowden awesome Cynefin Framework in distinguishing Simple, Complicated, Complex and Chaotical systems and problems and how they might demand different approaches.

DUP Program Template Builder v4.0

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…
