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.

Long-term preparation In chapter 4 there are discussions regarding annual plan, quadrennial cycle, sport longevity and long-term preparation of young athletes.

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

However, further progress in sport science has reinforced the contradictions between traditional periodization and the successful experiences of prominent coaches and athletes. Evidence-based analysis of the traditional periodization model led to elaboration of alternative versions of athletic preparation.

There is a description of phases of altitude acclimatization: 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. Aerobic endurance Basic coordination General strength Sport-specific abilities: To conclude, BP has its place and this book is currently the best there is on this subject.

Some interesting concepts worth mentioning here are the effect of taper realization mesocycle on emotional tension and anxiety of the athletes, nutritional advices during the taper, the effect of competition and emotional strain in the training stage on training residuals of preceding cycles and the method of prolongation of training residuals by inclusion of special compact mini-blocks.

Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training

Join Our Community Now! Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, Issurin points out that training cycles he calls them training blocks or mesocycles should be specialized and compiled in order to produce one of three different effects: The binding is sturdy. Accumulation — athletes should accumulate basic motor and technical abilities for potential use Transmutation — athletes should transmute their potential to eventspecific preparedness Realization — athletes should realize theid preparadness in readiness for competition and reaching the planned result.


There are exampes of 1 microcycle to develop aerobic strength-aerobic abilities, 2 microcycle of high intensity anaerobic workloads, 3 microcycle for explosive strength in highly coordinated exercises, 4 pre-competitive microcycle and 5 microcycle for sport-specific fitness maintenance in dual and team sports. Since the BPC assumes a high concentration of specialized workloads directed at minimum number of target abilities, this in turn determines the special demands of the appropriate microcycles, which should show mostly separate, not complex, distribution of workloads taking into account their reciprocal interactions and expected residuals.

Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training – Complementary Training

Vladimir Koprivica during my studies. Decrease in training load to ensure full recovery at the end of the cycle. Basic terms and principles of sports training Chapter 2: The book is in soft cover and A4 format. Last but not least is his treatment of modeling that can be very productive in terms of finalizing the training targets, individual and collective norms of sport specific abilities and training workloads.

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.

This traditional periodization was republished many times and became a universal and monopolistic approach to training planning and analysis. The adoption of this system requires reformation of many theoretical positions and practical guidelines, which previously seemed unshakable.

At the bottom of this page members can find the appropriate coupon code and use it whenever they like. In recent decades, many studies have evaluated the effects of both BP training versions in different sports. What does this product claim? Training effects Issurrin 3: Therefore, the purpose of this book is to introduce Block Periodization of sport training as a general concept and as the basis for a revamped training system. The chapter proceeds on a discussion regarding general principles of AT and the definition of three main goals of AT: It is suggested that the CU training strategy suits athletic disciplines demanding one fitness component like explosive strength in jumping performances.


General principles of BPC are discussed, and the new way of structuring the annual cycle with three types of periodzation blocks accumulation, transmutation periodizahion realization is explained. In case the competition is not possible, it issurim be substituted with a testing battery, specific for the aims bloock the training cycle.

Microcycles, mesocycles and training stages There is a differentiation between microcycles the shortest training cycles in three principle ways: The next step is the dividing of the annual cycle into training stages, where each one contains a consecutive combination of extensive work on basic abilities, more intensive work on sport-specific abilities and the reduction that is accomplished by testing or competition.

There is an explanation of load variation in microcylces wave-shape design and discussion on the number of peaks within microcycle. It is hypothesized that different types of mesocycle-blocks are suitable to various modes of biological adaptation, hlock. Here is my review of the Block Periodization book for the amazon. The common approach to long-term athletic preparation assumes there are four separate stages.
