More sport-specific examples should have been introduced. At that time the traditional training periodization, as a division of the whole seasonal program into smaller peirodization and training units, was proposed and elucidated.

Gradually, these experiences led to alternative coaching concepts and, ultimately, a revamped training approach called Block Periodization. The book is organized into 5 chapters and it has about pages. Learn the secrets of successful athletic training.

The common approach to long-term athletic preparation assumes there are four separate stages. Ultimately, two BP training models were proposed: Issurin further expands the understanding of not only block periodization, but also the general concept of training.


Block periodization versus traditional training theory: a review.

At the end of the book there is a small glossary for most important terms used in the book. The first innovative version postulated administration of highly concentrated training means for enhancement of one leading fitness component, whereas the second version proposed the development of many targeted abilities within sequenced block mesocycles containing a minimal number of compatible training modalities. Low volume, intensity high Testing battery Tests for basic abilities.

Discipline specific if possible Tests for sport-specific abilities Tests for speed, event strategy, ……. Learn the secrets of successful athletic training Learn the secrets of successful athletic training Table of Contents Chapter 1: No accumulation of fatigue Full recovery is not possible, fatigue accumulates Decrease in training load to ensure full recovery at the end of the cycle Training load Average.

Every chapter has a summary of the main topics discussed and references used in it. Sports Med There is a clear description of terms and ideas used by traditional theory, along with contradictions and consequences of such approach.

Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training – Complementary Training
