A Comparison of Linear and Daily Undulating Periodizied Strength Training Programs. by Andrew Caldwell The purpose of this study is to compare linear periodized (LP) and daily undulating (DUP) periodized strength training programs, and determine if either method of periodization elicits superior gains in 1 Repetitions maximums (1RM) for back squat (BS) and bench press (BP) (core exercises). Nineteen subjects (n=19) underwent a 6-week resistance-training (RT) program. Participants performed both…

Traditional vs. Undulating Periodization in the Context of Muscular Strength and Hypertrophy: A Meta-Analysis

The undulating periodization model seems better than TP model to improve maximum strength performance, but not to power, muscular endurance, isometric strength, and muscle hypertrophy.

Periodization: Variation in the Definition and Discrepancies in Study Design

The state of the literature suggests that the inability to define periodization makes the statement of its superiority difficult to experimentally test.



A Comparison of Linear and Daily Undulating Periodized Programs with Equated Volume and Intensity for Strength

Making program alterations on a daily basis was more effective in eliciting strength gains than doing so every 4 weeks, according to analysis of variance with repeated measures.

A Comparison of Linear and Daily Undulating Periodized Programs With Equated Volume and Intensity for Local Muscular Endurance

It was concluded that making gradual increases in volume and gradual decreases in intensity was the most effective program for increasing muscular endurance.

Periodization: The Effect on Strength of Manipulating Volume and Intensity

This study examined the effects of manipulating volume and intensity on strength and power in experienced male athletes. Subjects (N = 22) were tested for maximum strength in the squat and bench

Comparison Between Linear and Nonlinear In‐Season Training Programs in Freshman Football Players

Results of this study suggest that LT may be more effective in eliciting strength gains than NL in freshman football players during an in-season training program.

Influence of Resistance Training Volume and Periodization on Physiological and Performance Adaptations in Collegiate Women Tennis Players

The data demonstrate that sport-specific resistance training using a periodized multiple-set training method is superior to low-volume single-set resistance exercise protocols in the development of physical abilities in competitive, collegiate women tennis players.

The Effects of 4 and 10 Repetition Maximum Weight-Training Protocols on Neuromuscular Adaptations in Untrained Men

It is suggested that 4RM and 10RM weight-training protocols equated for volume produce similar neuromuscular adaptations over 10 weeks in previously untrained subjects.

The effect of weight-lifting exercise related to muscle fiber composition and muscle cross-sectional area in humans

The present results confirm the specificity of training and indicate that a high content of FT fibers is a prerequisite for a successful strength training.

The Effects of Mesocycle‐Length Weight Training Programs Involving Periodization and Partially Equated Volumes on Upper and Lower Body Strength

It was concluded that a mesocycle-length weight training program incorporating periodization is superior in eliciting upper and lower body strength gains when compared to programs with partially equated volumes.

Periodized Strength Training: A Critical Review

Variation or periodization of training is an important concept in designing weight-training programs. To date, the majority of studies examining periodization of weight training have used a

Distribution of strength training volume into one or two daily sessions and neuromuscular adaptations in female athletes.

The present results with female athletes suggest that the distribution of the volume of intensive strength training into smaller units, such as two daily sessions, may create more optimal conditions not only for muscular hypertrophy but by producing effective training stimuli especially for the nervous system.
