The White Papers

The documents below unfold the revolutionary system of training science. A blog series on the creative process of building this system is here.

  • Applied Mathematical Science of Physical Training Part 1: Barbell Loading

    This work details the construction of the foundational value necessary for the development of a full applied mathematical science of physical training: the Internal Training Load.  The underlying principles of A.S. Prilepin's table and a comparative analysis of the world records from the super-heavyweight division of competitive Weightlifting and Powerlifting are the genesis of the whole super-system to come.  Click here to read the paper.

  • Applied Mathematical Science of Physical Training Part 2: The Body Across Terrain Loading

    This work expands on the conceptual framework of the first paper.  In part two the loading computation system is expanded into the "body across terrain" training modalities, from running to climbing.  A comparative analysis of the world records of competitive running (from the 100 meter dash to the 100 mile run) and climbing are used to integrate BAT training into the greater scheme based on  barbell training in the first paper.  Click here to read the paper.

  • Applied Mathematical Science Of Physical Training Part 3: Preparedness

    Between the "Applied Science of Training" parts 1 and 2 all the loading levels of standard competitive activities and workouts of various sizes for all barbell and "body across terrain" training were precisely determined.  In the third paper these quantities are used to determine the Fitness and Fatigue developed by various activities and workouts, as well as the time to full decay of both.  These values facilitate the determination of the real-time Preparedness of athlete at any time in the training-competition process, bringing Fitness-Fatigue Theory (2-Factor Theory) from the theoretical to the applied science realm. Click here to read the paper.

  • Applied Mathematical Science of Physical Training Part 4: Strength Potency

    This work will detail how to determine the strength training potency from a given training set of repetitions. A physiological ability/attribute and its potency is a vector value based on three variables. This paper defines those variables and how they relate specifically for the ability of strength.  Click here to read the paper.

  • Applied Mathematical Science of Physical Training Part 5: Velocity-Power-Force Continuum Potencies

    This paper details how to determine the  training potencies from a given training set of repetitions for the abilities of the Velocity-Power-Force continuum. The abilities of the V-P-F continuum are Speed, Speed-Strength, Power, Strength-Speed, and Maximum-Strength.  The synthetic developmental effect of these training these abilities is Versatile Power, a crucial variable for athletic success.  Click here to read the paper.

  • Applied Mathematical Science of Physical Training Part 6: Force-Structure-Vegetative Continuum Potencies

    This work details how to determine the  training potencies from a given training set of repetitions for the abilities of the Force-Structure-Vegetative continuum. The abilities of this continuum are related to Strength and Work Capacity against various grades of resistance.  The synthetic developmental effect of training these abilities manifests as versatile Endurance.  Click here to read the paper.
