Here is my review of the Block Periodization book for the Vladimir Issurin serves as a scientific and professional coordinator at. This second book on block periodization by Dr. Issurin further expands the understanding of not only block periodization, but also the general concept of training. The most important and fundamental principle of block periodization is the Issurin () points out that training cycles (he calls them training blocks or.

At that time the traditional training periodization, as a division of the whole seasonal program into smaller periods and training units, was proposed and elucidated. Sportlyzer Academy garners the best training planning and analysis practices for rowers and rowing coaches. The chapter finishes with guidelines for structuring an altitude preparation program.

Strength endurance Power Special endurance Anaerobic threshold …… Tapering: Similarly, utilization of a CU program by elite swimmers did not lead to substantial enhancement of their peak performances.

Block Periodization 2 by Dr. Issurin – Dr. Yessis SportLab

I am a physical preparation coach from Belgrade, Serbia, grew up in Pula, Croatia which I consider my home town. There is a description of phases of altitude acclimatization: Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, Characteristics Accumulation phase Transmutation phase Issurun phase Targeted motor and technical abilities Basic abilities: The loading microcycle is further differentiated into adjustment, loading and impact based on loading level.

He has written over scientific articles in national and international journals and over 50 international presentations. Low volume, intensity high Testing battery Tests for basic abilities.

Designing the training programs Chapter 5: Major contradictions between traditional theory and practice needs appeared as 1 an inability to provide multi peak performances during the season; 2 the drawbacks of long lasting periodizatio training programs; 3 negative interactions of non-compatible workloads that induced conflicting training responses; and 4 insufficient training stimuli to help highly qualified athletes to progress, as a result of mixed training.


Vladimir Koprivica during my studies.

This second book on block periodization by Dr. Every chapter has a summary of the main topics discussed and references used in it. It consolidates empirically proved positions with the most up-to-date scientific knowledge.

Block Periodization 2 by Dr. Issurin

It is suggested that the CU training strategy suits athletic disciplines demanding one fitness component like explosive strength in jumping performances. There is a presentation of so-called dual approach to giftedness, that differs between two factors: Well, BP is a tool and every tool have its problem for which is determined to fix.

Its general idea suggests the use and sequencing of specialized mesocycle-blocks, where highly concentrated training workloads are isurin on a minimal number of motor and technical abilities.

Sports Med New approach, or Block Periodization Concept BPC utilize concentrated workloads with sequential consecutive development of motor abilities with the aim of achieving multi-peaks during the year.

This information together with the other information presented, reflect the long-term practical work that has been done with East European mostly Soviet and Western coaches and athletes.

Discipline specific if possible Tests for sport-specific abilities Tests for speed, event strategy, ……. Modeled performance Speed Tactics Mental preparation Recovery Periods of recovery needed for adaptation. Block Periodization Page Discussion History. This chapter is very interesting and informative since it discuss compatibility and sequencing of training modalities I have never seen in any other book, especially not explained in such clear and to-the-pont way.

Aerobic endurance Basic coordination General epriodization. This book is intended for coaches, athletes, researchers and physical education students. There is a discussion regarding contradictions of the effect of AT in physiological textbooks vs.


The book is organized into 5 chapters and it has about pages.

Block periodization versus traditional training theory: a review.

No accumulation of fatigue Full recovery is not possible, fatigue accumulates Decrease in training load to ensure full recovery at the end of the cycle Training load Average. As a member of the national Olympic delegations he took part in five Olympic Games; twice as a team leader of the Israeli kayak and swimming national teams and General principles of BPC are discussed, and the new way of structuring the annual cycle with three types of mesocycle blocks accumulation, transmutation and realization is explained.

Breakthrough in Sport Training. The chapter ends with a table outlining principal differences between traditional training approach and BPC.

Post altitude re-acclimatization and periodizattion concept of positive and negative phases of athletes state following AT is also discussed and this is the most interesting part of the chapter. Evidence-based analysis of the traditional periodization model led to elaboration of alternative versions of athletic preparation. So, the anwer depends on the situation you deal with.

The present review introduces innovative concepts of training periodization and summarizes a large body of findings characterizing their potential benefits and possible limitations. Its general idea presupposes the use and sequencing of specialized mesocycle-blocks, where highly concentrated training workloads are focused on a minimal number of motor and technical abilities.

A substantial part of the book is devoted to designing training programs.
