This definitive text combines the concepts central to periodization and training theory with contemporary advances in sport science, physiology, and coaching. Tudor O. Bompa, the pioneer of periodization training, and Carlo A. Buzzichelli, one of the world's foremost experts on training methods, use.
Bompa, PhD, revolutionized Western training methods when he introduced his groundbreaking theory of periodization in his native Romania in After adopting his training system, the Eastern Bloc countries dominated international sports through the s and s. In , Bompa began applying his principles of periodization to the sport of bodybuilding. He has personally trained 11 Olympic medalists including four gold medalists and has served as a consultant to coaches and athletes worldwide. Bompa's books on training methods, including Theory and Methodology of Training: The Key to Athletic Performance and Periodization of Training for Sports, have been translated into 19 languages and used in more than countries for training athletes and educating and certifying coaches.

To prepare for competition, coaches who use periodization might focus on developing mostly strength for a month or two and then switch to another goal afterward. The criticisms of periodization, however, center on the loss of those attributes while not working them.
Considering the success of the conjugate method, so named for working two athletic traits within the same week of training, alternative methods such as this have all but squeezed the life out periodization. A recent study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning would agree with eliminating periodization, at least where similar exercises are concerned.
In the study, researchers looked at three methods of training athletes. One in which they periodized exercises into 3-week blocks for some athletes, 1-week blocks for others, and another group in which they trained each exercise daily.
The tested the athletes before and after on a series of exercises and each had made similar improvements. I have a few thoughts on this study.
The researchers took active soldiers who, to some degree, were already trained, but probably had some general acclimations as a result of the study.
In the study also, the exercises trained were not as diverse as the goals I listed above.
Ultimately for athletes who focus on basic lifts, such as powerlifters , periodization is probably all but unnecessary. However, as an example anecdote, I need to keep up my cardio work for my own training all year or it will suffer. Depending on your sport, your goals, and your genes, periodization may have a small place in your training but mostly needs to be left in the dust.
