The purpose of this study was to compare linear periodi-zation (LP), daily undulating periodization (DUP), and reverse linear periodization (RLP) for gains in local muscular endurance and strength. Sixty subjects (30 men, 30 women) were randomly assigned to LP, DUP, or RLP groups. Maximal repetitions at 50% of the subject's body weight were recorded for leg extensions as a pretest, midtest, and post-test. Training involved 3 sets (leg extensions) 2 days per week. The LP group performed sets of…

Comparison Between Daily and Weekly Undulating Periodized Resistance Training to Increase Muscular Strength for Volleyball Players

Both DUP and WUP periodized training programs made similar strength gains from baseline to week 6, however, between week 8 and week 13, the WUP model outperformed the DUP model making larger improvements in muscular strength.

Effects of Linear vs. Daily Undulatory Periodized Resistance Training on Maximal and Submaximal Strength Gains

Although there was no statistically significant difference between periodization models, DUP promoted superior ES gains in muscular maximal and submaximal strength.

A comparison of periodization models with equated volume and intensity for strength

No significant differences were observed between groups, however, each of the three models proved effective in increasing bench press and leg press strength over the course of nine weeks.

Traditional vs daily undulling periodization in strength and local muscle endurance gains on trained men

The results indicated that daily undulling periodization seems to be more influent in increasing muscular strength and local muscular endurance according to effect size evidence.

Comparison Between Linear and Daily Undulating Periodized Resistance Training to Increase Strength

Undulating periodized strength training induced higher increases in maximal strength than the linear model in strength-trained men, and daily intensity and volume variations were more effective than weekly variations.

Periodization effects during short-term resistance training with equated exercise variables in females

Periodization is no adaptation trigger during short-term resistance training with equated exercise variables, displaying similar small to large effect sizes.

Comparison of Linear and Daily Undulating Periodization in Resistance Training Using Simple Measures of Overreaching: 2936

The lack of a significant decrease in performance measures or increase in average sleeping heart rate or RPE in either training group caused the null hypothesis to be accepted.

Effects of Different Periodization Models in Strength Training on Physical and Motor Skills during 24 Weeks of Training

Introduction: Periodization is the accurate manipulation of methodological variables of strength training (ST) to provide a progressive increase in the different manifestations of muscle strength.

Linear and daily undulating resistance training periodizations have differential beneficial effects in young sedentary women.

It is suggested that LP performed with a high number of repetitions may be considered an appropriate periodization model for untrained young women that would likely lead to the improvement of body composition and maximum strength performance, whereas DUP is more effective for the development of ME.



The Effects of Periodization Versus Progressive Resistance Exercise on Upper and Lower Body Strength in Women

Volume of work performed was more powerful in determining strength than was the manipulation of repetitions, sets, or periods of active rest in the periodization and progressive resistance exercise groups.

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

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.

Manipulating Resistance Training Program Variables to Optimize Maximum Strength in Men: A Review

Maximum strength is the capacity to generate force within an isometric contraction. It is a valuable attribute to most athletes because it acts as a general base that supports specific training in

Muscle fiber types and size in trained and untrained muscles of elite athletes.

The data show a difference in fiber type distribution between the trained and nontrained muscles of endurance athletes, which may reflect the adaptive response to long-term endurance training.

Human skeletal muscle fiber type alteration with high-intensity intermittent training

It is suggested that high-intensity intermittent training in humans may alter the proportion ofType I and the area of type I and IIb fibers and in consequence that fiber type composition in human vastus lateralis muscle is not determined solely by genetic factors.

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

Adaptive response of mammalian skeletal muscle to exercise with high loads

This review is concerned with the effects on muscle of chronic exercise using high loads. An attempt is made to assess the nature of the training stimulus, the rate of response of the tissue to the

Muscle Mechanics: Adaptations with Exercise‐Training

A positive correlation exists between the percentage of fast fibers and peak torque output at moderate-to-high angular isokinetic velocities and, consequently, peak power output is substantially greater in subjects possessing a predominance of fast fiber types.


This description of some of the present knowledge on skeletal muscle fibers, their metabolic potentials, and their interplay with the degree of physical activity has revealed that skeletal muscle of
