Strength Training Periodization

There is no training program that will work forever.

Thats the #1 reason why everyone needs to change up training programs.

Many just choose some other program that they want to do next. Which very little results in the end.

What program you choose next and the selection of which programs works best after a given program needs to be specific 

This is what Periodization is for.

Periodization is defining a structured order of programs. 

Periodization is a systematic approach on how to build programs on top of each other. Always with the end goal in mind.

And same as with training programs and nutrition there is not „the one“ periodization model that works for everyone all the time.

There is no Periodization model that works for everybody and every goal.

This is why Periodization has to be individualized.

Some Periodization models have been proven to consistantly create results in certain scenarios and with certain goals.

Other Periodization models rarely work outside of using them with beginners.

Choosing which periodization model to apply is critical for the longterm success of a client. A Gen Pop client and an athlete.

Periodization is critical for everyone that trains longer than 3 months.

Periodization is the base of any type of continously successfull and progressive approach to program design in training. This is why this YPSI Online Module is centered around the focus on Strength Training Periodization.

And this YPSI Online Module on Strength Training Periodization gives an systemically structured overview and practical results-oriented approach Wolfgang Unsoeld and the YPSI is known for around the world.

This YPSI Online Module looks into the most important and successfull periodization models. In theory and practice.

This YPSI Online Module will teach you the theory behind a specific Periodization model and then will bridge the gap into its practical application.

„Who fails to plan, plans to fail.“

This is one of my favorite quotes about planning and Periodization.

If you want to be successful in training, you need to be competent in planning. You need to understand Periodization.

We live in a knowledge-based world where your knowledge and competence are fundamental to success.

And learning is the foundation of knowledge and competence.

As an avid teacher I have taught over 300 events to thousands of students in the last 8 years in over 26 countries in the world. Check out some of the group pictures here.

And for the first time some this information available online.

Where Science meets Practice

Periodization and planning can be a very dry and are often made overly scientific with little carryover to training and results in the real world.

One Goal of this Module is to combine the best of both worlds.

Take from science what is useful.

And apply it to practice in a given scenario for consistent progress.

In a manner thats easy to integrate into programming while being as close as possible to the dynamics of the real world.

Do today what others copy tomorrow.

Periodization is still one of the most underrated and least mastered aspects of strength training.

Many know the term Periodization.

Some have a basic idea of what Periodization is.

Few apply a small hand full of Periodization principles.

And less than a few are actually competent enough to specifically use different types of Periodization in different scenarios for different goals.

The premise on which this Online Module is put together, is to increase this knowledge and competence.

To provide knowledge to the Coaches that will lead the way. And take their and their clients results in training through meticulous planning and Periodization to the next level.

This Module is for you, if you want to:

-> Understand the value of Short-term and Long-term Periodization
-> Learn how to use Linear Periodization in specific scenarios
-> Learn how to use Reverse Linear Periodization in specific scenarios
-> Learn how to use Non-Linear and Undulating Periodization in specific scenarios
-> Learn how to use Block Periodization in specific scenarios
-> Learn how to use Conjugate Periodization in specific scenarios
-> Learn how to use Microperiodization, which defines how to structure loads in a given workout
-> Learn how to use Mesoperiodization, which defines how to structure training parametes within a Meso-cycle of 3 to 4 weeks
