Summary

World-renowned exercise scientist Tudor Bompa's landmark work in sports conditioning established a whole new way for athletes and coaches to schedule training in the modern sports era. To this day, Bompa continues to refine the process and in this new edition of Periodization, Theory and Methodology of Training, he shares the training timetable used by Olympic gold medalists and champions in all types of sports. This book presents Bompa's scientifically based principles and how to apply them to optimally train athletes' energy systems for their sports and for their roles in those sports. Coaches and athletes will treasure this access to training schedules, proven to maximize performance and minimize the risk of injury and boredom. The ready-made programs provided for 32 sports eliminate the guesswork and establish a clear path to achieving the best results. The book contains detailed plans for training the body's energy and neuromuscular systems: aerobic training for stamina, anaerobic training for power and speed and resistance training for strength. Periodization, Theory and Methodology of Training is the ultimate conditioning planner to train smarter, not harder, in gaining an edge over the competition.
