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.

sisurin Traditional training periodization, i. He has written over scientific articles in national and international journals and over 50 international presentations.

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. The rational sequencing of specialized mesocycle-blocks presupposes the exploitation and superimposition of residual training effects, an idea that has recently been conceptualized and studied. Ultimately, two BP training models were proposed: In case the competition is not possible, it should be substituted with a testing battery, specific leriodization the aims of the training cycle.

Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training – Complementary Training

The present review introduces innovative concepts of training periodization and summarizes a large body of findings characterizing their potential benefits and possible limitations. Your email address will not be published.

Learn the secrets of successful athletic training. Issurin This second book on block periodizayion by Dr. It is suggested that the CU training strategy suits athletic disciplines demanding one fitness component like explosive strength in jumping performances. There is an explanation of load variation in microcylces wave-shape design and discussion on the number of peaks within microcycle.

Vladimir Koprivica during my studies. This traditional periodization was republished many times and became a universal and monopolistic approach to training planning and analysis. J Sports Med Phys Fit Said this, the author presents guidelines for structuring microcycle: To conclude, BP has its place and this book is currently the best there is on this subject. Learn the secrets of successful athletic training Learn the secrets of successful athletic training Table of Contents Chapter 1: 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.


I was involved in physical preparation of professional, amateur and recreational athletes of various ages in sports such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, martial arts and tennis. At the end of the book there isskrin a small glossary for most pefiodization terms used in the book. The most interesting parts of this chapter are the guidelines for constructing workout.

Major contradictions between iissurin theory and practice needs appeared as 1 blpck inability to provide multi peak performances during the season; 2 the drawbacks of long lasting mixed 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.

The next step is periodjzation 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. It should be very important to end the realization phase with some kind of competition to have information about the effect of the training cycle and to monitor the performance.

Where can I get it and how much does it cost? Particulars regarding quadrennial planning were given for preparing highly qualified athletes.

The book is organized into 5 chapters and it has about pages. Accoding to the level of the athlete it means world championships, Olympics, National championships, national junior championships etc.

Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, The site of Ultimate Athlete Concepts http: Discipline specific if possible Tests for sport-specific abilities Tests for speed, event strategy, …….

Block Periodization 2 by Dr. Issurin further perioddization the understanding of not only block periodization, but also the general concept of training. Similarly, utilization of a CU program by elite swimmers did not lead to substantial enhancement of their peak performances.

The basics of annual cycle construction included goals and objectives, sequencing the main steps in the annual plan, and general tendencies in workload compilation. The chapter begins by laying out scientific background, general factors affecting altitude performance and basics of altitude adaptation. Block Periodization 1 by Dr. 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 High volume, reduced intensity.


Aerobic endurance Basic coordination General strength. Join Our Community Now! 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 Its general idea suggests the use and sequencing of specialized mesocycle-blocks, where highly concentrated training workloads are focused on a minimal number of motor and technical abilities.

If you are currently not a member, then I would like to invite you to become one. They are preliminary preparation, initial specialization, advanced specialization and sports perfection. Decrease in training load to ensure full recovery at the end of the cycle.

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: Some interesting concepts worth mentioning here are the effect of taper realization mesocycle on emotional tension and anxiety of the athletes, nutritional blcok 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.

Unlike traditional periodization, where simultaneous development of many abilities is the norm, the block periodization concept proposes the consecutive training stimulation of carefully selected fitness components. Modeled performance Speed Tactics Mental preparation.

Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training

Basic terms and principles of sports training Chapter 2: A substantial part of the book is devoted to designing training programs. Strength endurance Power Special endurance Anaerobic threshold …… Prriodization The concept of key workout is also discussed and explained, along with workout structure warm-up, main part, cool-down and the concept of key exercise or key task.

There is also a discussion of sensitive periodsalong with talent identification. This second book on block periodization by Dr. Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, Characteristics Accumulation phase Transmutation phase Realization phase Targeted motor and technical abilities Basic abilities:
