Here is my review of the Block Periodization book for the amazon. There is an explanation of load variation in microcylces wave-shape design and discussion on the number of peaks within microcycle.

The loading microcycle is further differentiated into adjustment, loading and impact based on loading level.

Block periodization versus traditional training theory: a review.

It consolidates empirically proved positions with the most up-to-date scientific knowledge. Your email address will not be published. Sports Med Low volume, intensity high Testing battery Tests for basic abilities. It is suggested that the CU training strategy suits athletic disciplines demanding one fitness component like explosive strength in jumping performances.

Aerobic endurance Basic coordination General strength Sport-specific abilities: Major contradictions between traditional theory and practice needs appeared as 1 an inability to provide multi peak performances during the season; 2 the drawbacks of long lasting mixed training programs; 3 negative interactions of non-compatible workloads that induced conflicting training responses; and 4 insufficient training stimuli to help highly qualified athletes to progress, as a result of mixed training.

I was involved in physical preparation of professional, amateur and recreational athletes of various ages in sports such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, martial arts and tennis.

Long-term preparation In chapter 4 there are discussions regarding annual plan, quadrennial cycle, sport longevity and long-term preparation of young athletes. Modeled performance Speed Tactics Mental preparation.


The chapter ends with a table outlining principal differences between traditional training approach and BPC. Don’t miss this great opportunity.

More sport-specific examples should have been introduced. Paper is high quality and the font is large 12pts with large line spacing, which allows for easier reading. Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, Characteristics Accumulation phase Transmutation phase Realization phase Targeted motor and technical abilities Basic abilities: If you are currently not a member, then I would like to invite you to become one.

Unlike this limitation, the multi-targeted BP system prompted periodizatikn beneficial increase of specific preparedness in sports and disciplines in which peak performances require the application of many targeted athletic abilities. Vladimir Bblock during my studies. This second book on block periodization by Dr.

The basis of contemporary training theory were founded a few decades ago when knowledge was far from complete and workload levels, athletic results and demands were much lower than now. The trials and successful experiences of prominent coaches and researchers led to alternative training concepts and, ultimately, to a perioodization training approach that was called block periodization BP.

The most important and fundamental principle of block periodization is the concentration of the training workloads. Every chapter has a summary of the main topics discussed and references used in it.

The training cycles of highly concentrated specialized workloads were coined “training blocks” by experts and practitioners; correspondingly, the alternative versions were termed “block periodized BP preparation systems” by their presenters.

Designing the training programs Chapter 5: This book is intended for coaches, athletes, researchers and physical education students.

Join Our Community Now! The adoption of this system requires reformation of many periodiaztion positions and practical guidelines, which previously seemed unshakable. The good news is that from now on Complementary Training members can order any of their books with considerable discount.


Since the BPC assumes a high concentration of specialized workloads directed at minimum number of target abilities, this in turn determines the special demands of the appropriate microcycles, which should show mostly separate, not complex, distribution of workloads taking into account their reciprocal interactions and expected residuals.

This traditional periodization was republished many times and became a universal and monopolistic approach to training planning and analysis. Block Periodization Page Discussion History. Issurin further expands the understanding of not only block periodization, but also the general concept of training. He completed his undergraduate studies on Sport Sciences and Ph.

Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training

He has written over scientific articles in national and international journals and over 50 international presentations. Block Periodization 2 by Dr.

The common approach to long-term athletic preparation assumes there are four separate stages. The site of Ultimate Athlete Concepts http: Further, the three types of mesocycles proposed by BPC are considered with respect to duration, content and monitoring of training.

Accumulation — athletes should accumulate basic motor and technical abilities for potential use Transmutation — athletes should transmute their potential to eventspecific preparedness Realization — athletes should realize theid preparadness in readiness for competition and reaching the planned result.

At that time the traditional training periodization, as a division of the whole seasonal program into smaller periods and training units, was proposed and elucidated.
