Applied Periodization offers an honest and unbiased perspective on one of the most controversial and debated topics in sports: periodization. This book covers the science and practice of strength training for sport, from periodized resistance training to program design. Fundamental notions and concepts are presented with the scientific rigor deemed to be necessary in the process of unfolding and piecing together well over 50 years worth of research. The book includes a detailed breakdown of different periodization models including linear periodization, non-linear periodization, daily undulated periodization, weekly undaunted periodization, and block periodization. Chapters provide detailed guidelines on exercise selection and program design with case studies to help bridge the gap between theory and practice. Applied Periodization by Antonio Squillante is the most comprehensive review on periodized resistance training for sport and the most up-to-date manual for practitioners in the field of sports science.
