Periodization Training for Sports 3rd Ed.
Sport conditioning has advanced tremendously since the era when a “no pain, no gain” philosophy guided the training regimens of athletes. 
Periodization Training for Sports goes beyond the simple application of bodybuilding or powerlifting programs to build strength in athletes.
What are the benefits to Functional Fitness Athletes:
  • Demonstrates how to use periodized workouts to peak at optimal times by manipulating strength training variables through six training phases (anatomical adaptation, hypertrophy, maximum strength, conversion to specific strength, maintenance, and tapering) and integrating them with energy system training and nutrition strategies.
  • Coaches and athletes in 35 sports have at their fingertips a proven program that is sure to produce the best results.
  • No more guessing about preseason conditioning, in-season workloads, or rest and recovery periods; now it's simply a matter of identifying and implementing the information in this book.
Presented with plenty of ready-made training schedules, Periodization Training for Sports is your best conditioning planner if you want to know what works, why it works, and when it works in the training room and on the practice field.
Get in better shape next season and reap the benefits of smarter workouts in competition. 
About the Authors:

Tudor O. Bompa, PhD, revolutionised Western training methods when he introduced his groundbreaking theory of periodization in Romania in 1963. After adopting his training system, the Eastern Bloc countries dominated international sports through the 1970s and 1980s.

In 1988, Dr. Bompa applied his principle of periodization to the sport of bodybuilding. He has personally trained 11 Olympic medalists (including four gold medalists) and has served as a consultant to coaches and athletes worldwide.

A member of the Canadian Olympic Association and the Romanian National Council of Sports, Dr. Bompa is professor emeritus at York University, where he has taught training theories since 1987. He and his wife, Tamara, live in Sharon, Ontario.

Carlo Buzzichelli, AAS, is a professional strength and conditioning coach and the technical director of the Tudor Bompa Institute International. Carlo was a pupil of Tudor Bompa and is considered one of the foremost experts on strength training. Carlo has held seminars at various universities and sport institutes worldwide, including the Superior Institute of Physical Education and Sports of Camaguey in Cuba; the University of Makati in Manila, Philippines; the Superior Institute of Physical Education and Sports of Ciego de Avila in Cuba; the Universidade Paulista and the Olympic Center of Sao Paulo in Brazil; and the World Athletic Center in Arizona.

His athletes have won two international golds in track and field and three silvers and one bronze in track and field and Brazilian jiu-jitsu; they also have set five national records in powerlifting.
