Overview

Sports 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 the athlete's conditioning level.

In Periodization Training for Sports, Bompa demonstrates how to use periodized workouts in order to peak at optimal times by manipulating six different training phases: anatomical adaptation, hypertrophy, maximum strength, conversion to power, maintenance, and transition. Coaches and athletes in 32 sports have at their fingertips a proven program that is sure to produce the best results. No more guessing about preseason conditioning, in-season workloads, or appropriate rest and recovery periods; now it's simply a matter of identifying and implementing the information in this book.

Presented in a useful format with plenty of ready-made training schedules, Periodization Training for Sports is your best conditioning planner if you want to know what works, why it works, and when it works in the training room and on the practice field. Get in better shape next season, and see the benefits of smarter workouts in competition.

Meet the Author

Tudor O. Bompa, PhD is recognized worldwide as the foremost expert on periodization training. He developed the concept of periodization of strength in Romania in 1963, as he helped the eastern bloc countries rise to dominance in the athletic world. Since then, periodization training has become a standard method for conditioning champion athletes. Bompa has proven his system time and again, using it to train many world-class athletes including 11 Olympic medalists.

A professor emeritus at York University in Toronto, Bompa has authored several books on physical conditioning, including Serious Strength Training, Periodization: Theory and Methodology of Training, Total Training for Young Champions, Training the Team Sports Athletes, and Power Training for Sport: Plyometrics for Maximum Power Development, as well as numerous articles on the subject. His work has been translated into 18 languages, including Chinese, Russian, French, Spanish, and Italian, and he has made presentations on training theories, planning, and periodization in more than 35 countries. His publications, conferences, and ideas are highly regarded and enthusiastically sought after by many top professional athletes and training specialists.

Bompa currently offers a certification program in training, planning, and periodization called the Tudor Bompa Training System. The program is designed for personal trainers, instructors, coaches, athletes, and educators. For more information visit www.tudorbompa.com or e-mail tudor.bompa@sympatico.ca.

Bompa lives in Sharon, Ontario, Canada.

    Amazing. Performance broken down to a science

    I'm currently chasing a pro football career. This book helped me to drop my 40yrd dash from a 4.42 to a 4.35 in 3 months, increase my reps of 225lbs on the bench form 12 to 17 reps in 1 month, increase my vertical leap from 33" to 37", my broad jump from 9'9" to 10'5". My on the field performance was phenomenal, due in part to training specifically for movement in my sport, which is what I learned from this book. I have read it 3 times, and every time I get something valuable out of it. When you think about it, it should be common sense, but many coaches just don't know this stuff.
