New idea for measurement, the logic behind, and the improvement of ”Standard model” written by Nimphius et al (2016)

*Originally written for ComplementaryTraining.net blog – Is a COD Deficit Really a Deficit?

Before going down the rabbit hole I highly recommend you reading the article from Sophia Nimphius and her colleagues (2016): Change of direction deficit: A more isolated measure of change of direction performance than total 505 time. It represents a base of my idea written below. Further down I named their model a “Standard model”. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are not interested in a construct and details, just skip to the “Simple instructions and equation” part.

There are plenty of tips out there on how to plan and progress your training sessions. Based on different variables and theories.

If I can be a bit sarcastic, then majority of them is based on what the coaches/athletes are seining it on a YouTube (Facebook and Instagram too). I named this “YouTube periodisation”. Don’t lough, this is real deal and I am sure this is most used periodisation scheme these days. All the other ways of planning are way behind this one. Who cares for block, linear, undulating, conjugate, top to bottom approach, whatever named periodisation if he/she can easily access YouTube from anywhere on the world and just watch new exercise and add it to our plan.

How to test, perform and analyse your training – simply

Recently I posted about my training on social media and I got few questions about it. So here it is in more details.

I am known as a numbers coach and trying to be based on science. But I admit, I rose up through “bro-science” and I don’t think that is all that bad. Let me explain “bro-science”: somebody is performing one type of athletic training, let’s just say lifting in a gym, and he is doing a workout that is known just to him. At, the end of some period, he got some positive results out of it (No shit, it happens) and he claims that this is THE workout, and he is the special one among all the others.
