PERIODIZATION REPRESENTS AN OPTIMAL STRATEGY FOR ORGANIZING STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAMS. THE SELECTED STRATEGY, HOWEVER, SHOULD BE BASED ON THE LEVEL OF THE ATHLETE AND THE CONSTRAINTS OF THE COMPETITIVE SEASON. A COMMON THEME THROUGHOUT ALL THE PERIODIZATION PROTOCOLS IS THE NEED TO MANIPULATE VOLUME LOADS, PROGRESS FROM GENERAL TO SPORT-SPECIFIC TRAINING, AND DISSIPATE FATIGUE. SIGNIFICANT TO THE LATTER, THE USE OF PRECOMPETITION TAPERS APPEARS EVIDENTLY BENEFICIAL. ALTHOUGH ENOUGH… Expand
Applied periodization: a methodological approach
Periodization represents an optimal modality for organizing training programs in athletes, recreational and rehabilitative practitioners. The selected procedure, however, should be based on theExpand
An Integrated, Multifactorial Approach to Periodization for Optimal Performance in Individual and Team Sports.
TLDR
The available evidence underpinning integrated periodization is reviewed, focusing on exercise training, recovery, nutrition, psychological skills, and skill acquisition as key factors by which athletic preparation can be periodized. Expand
Evidence-Based Training Recommendations for the Elite Judoka
TLDR
The current literature and present evidence-based training recommendations for EJA suggest high-intensity interval training may provide stimulus to improve Upper Body Strength, Aerobic and Anaerobic Power for E JA. Expand
Periodization for the Clinical Practitioner
Periodization for the Clinical Practitioner Staying with an exercise program is a difficult task, and lack of compliance is often related to an individual experiencing a plateau in health and fitnessExpand
Resisted Sled Training for Young Athletes: When to Push and Pull
There is a renewed interest is resisted sled training (RST); however, little uniformity exists regarding the integration of best practices in RST for young athletes. This article reviews theExpand
Developing Powerful Athletes Part 2: Practical Applications
TLDR
The key mechanical parameters underpinning power development and its relationship to the force-time characteristics and force-velocity profile of sporting movements are used to evidence the planning of training drills, and assist the strength and conditioning coach in devising periodized training programs. Expand
Periodization in College Soccer
TLDR
A model system to organize perIODIZed training over an entire year, including summer training, season, and the COMPETITIVE COLLEGIATE SEASON is outlined. Expand
Periodized Resistance Training for Enhancing Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy and Strength: A Mini-Review
TLDR
Both the linear model and the undulate model are effective for enhancing strength, although a greater benefit might be achieved through the undulating model, although this conclusion can only be generalized to untrained populations. Expand
The application of the load-velocity relationship as a means of dictating resistance training intensity
The vast majority of resistance training programmes utilise traditional percentagebased loading methods to dictate and modify training intensity over time. These methods rely on predetermining loadExpand
Comparison of Powerlifting Performance in Trained Men Using Traditional and Flexible Daily Undulating Periodization
TLDR
Flexible daily undulating periodization seems to offer similar resistance training adaptations when compared with a traditional DUP in resistance-trained men. Expand

ELITE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE is dependent on a systemized training program. The general adaptation syndrome (GAS) was the original model from which periodization was designed (67). The GAS describesExpand
Strength Changes During an In‐Season Resistance‐Training Program for Football
TLDR
Analysis of the effects of intensity and volume of training during a 2 d-wk-1 in-season resistance-training program (RTP) for American football players showed that athletes training at ≥80% of their PRE 1RM had significantly greater strength improvements than athletes trained at <80% the 1RM.

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