Periodization Training for Sports - 2nd Edition: Science-Based Strength and Conditioning Plans for 17 Sports Reviews
A very well written book on Periodization for sports training. Dr. Bompa has all the bases covered in this book for a complete sports training program. The book includes a sections on training, and theory of Periodization, structure, and format or Periodization for individual sports [ covers every major sport ], an exercises selection, along with some pre, and post exercise information. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a solid training program tailored to their specific sports needs. Another good book on Periodization.
This is a very good book on strength training in that it relates specifically to many different sports. The only problem is that there are complicated terms, abbreviations, and vocabulary that are constantly used (with definitions and explanations upon first reference only). A glossary in the back would be a big help. Overall, this covers a lot of sport specific training methods which allows the reader to more or less pick and choose the best practices for his or her own training program. It's been a big help for me, although I recommend staying away from the plyometrics section.
This was a good solid book. You learned a lot about strength training and different methods to go about it. The only weakness was that it was complicated to learn everything, and you need to have a lot of patience to finish it.
In my opinion periodizaton is one of the must have books for trainers or even athletes. After reading that book everyone has a pretty good basic understanding of weight training in different sports.
This belong's in any serious athlete's library. While my main interest is power lifting and the books main emphasis is getting strong for some other sport i.e. running, etc. I still found a lot of good information.
I train just myself in powerlifting, there are a lot of periodized programs out there but I wanted to understand the method behind it and personalize a good plan for myself. I've bought some books that are too simple and some that get to broad and technical. This book is about periodized resistance training for all sports but has just the right focus for me to be able to apply it too my own training.
Innovative training methods...if you train for events, you have learn the practices and principles in this book. I took Tudor's courses at York and they were groundbreaking.He has developed training schedules for Olympic teams around the world and every team as a whole improved substantially.If you want to perform and peak for an event...Learn this book inside out.
I got into powerlifting as part of physical therapy for my knee. When I got to where I could run again, I ran across this book in the library looking for training program. It is detailed and full of information, so I bought a copy so I could mark it up and really get into the weeds.I'm not a coach or any type of fitness expert, so a lot of this stuff was new to me. The Author is also cited in a lot of the sports training literature as an authority. While the writing is a little dense, with an authoritative tone and syntax that leads me to believe it was not originally written in English, it is full of facts, figures, charts and graphs to show how to get things done.Working out use to be 3 sets of 10 three times a week and be totally smug about it. This is showing me how to make the jump for 'fitness' to 'athleticism'. I dont have to wonder what I'm going to do, or if its being effecitive or when I should see results, The book tells how to lay out a methodical program to bring you to a competitive peak.
I was lucky enough to be coached by Tudor when I was training for the 1996 Olympics through my rowing Coach Alan Rosenberg. I can tell you Tudor's strategy on periodization is amazing. I still use it today 20 years later. Last year I set a world record and continue to improve and have great results. I'm even adapting his philosophy to my kids now for skiing and hockey. Great information.
