Using periodized workouts to peak at the optimal time

Sport conditioning has advanced tremendously since the era when a “no pain, no gain” philosophy guided the training regimens of athletes.

Dr. Tudor Bompa pioneered most of these breakthroughs, proving long ago that it’s not only how much and how hard an athlete works but also when and what work is done that determines an athlete’s conditioning level.

In this new edition of Periodization Training for Sports, Tudor Bompa teams up with strength and conditioning expert Carlo Buzzichelli to demonstrate how to use periodized workouts to peak at the optimal time.

Coaches and athletes across 35 sports will learn what works, why it works and when it works, both in the training room and on the practice field.
