Periodization Training for Sport: 3rd Edition - Paperback Book
Uses strength and periodisation to ensure physical conditioning and progression.Sport conditioning has advanced tremendously since the era when a “no pain, no gain” philosophy guided the training regimens of athletes. Dr. Tudor Bompa pioneered most of these breakthroughs, proving long ago that it's not only how much and how hard an athlete works but also when and what work is done that determine an athlete's conditioning level. Periodization Training for Sports goes beyond the simple application of bodybuilding or powerlifting programs to build strength in athletes.In this new edition of Periodization Training for Sports, Bompa teams with strength and conditioning expert Carlo Buzzichelli to demonstrate how to use periodized workouts to peak at optimal times by manipulating strength training variables through six training phases (anatomical adaptation, hypertrophy, maximum strength, conversion to specific strength, maintenance, and tapering) and integrating them with energy system training and nutrition strategies. Coaches and athletes in 35 sports have at their fingertips a proven program that is sure to produce the best results. No more guessing about preseason conditioning, in-season workloads, or rest and recovery periods; now it's simply a matter of identifying and implementing the information in this book.Presented with plenty of ready-made training schedules, Periodization Training for Sports is your best conditioning planner if you want to know what works, why it works, and when it works in the training room and on the practice field. Get in better shape next season and reap the benefits of smarter workouts in competition. Own what will be considered the bible of strength training for sport of the next decade.ContentsPrefacePart I Foundations of Strength TrainingChapter 1 Strength, Power, and Muscular Endurance in SportsChapter 2 Neuromuscular Response to Strength TrainingChapter 3 Training Strength and Energy SystemsChapter 4 Fatigue, Muscle Soreness, and RecoveryChapter 5 Periodization as Planning and Programming of Sport TrainingChapter 6 Principles of Strength Training for SportsPart II Program DesignChapter 7 Manipulation of Training VariablesChapter 8 Sport NutritionChapter 9 Microcycle Short-Term PlanChapter 10 Annual PlanPart III Periodization of StrengthChapter 11 Phase 1Chapter 12 Phase 2Chapter 13 Phase 3Chapter 14 Phase 4Chapter 15 Phases 5 and 6Index
