Abstract

SUMMARYTHE PRINCIPLES OF PERIODIZATION ARE COMMONLY USED IN THE DESIGN OF STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING REGIMENS FOR ATHLETES. RESEARCHERS EXAMINING ITS EFFECTIVENESS HAVE FOUND IT TO BE MORE EFFECTIVE THAN NONPERIODIZED APPROACHES TO TRAINING. HOWEVER, RESEARCH ON PERIODIZATION IS SURPRISINGLY LIMITED IN SCOPE AND THIS MAKES ITS APPLICATION CHALLENGING. BY BROADENING SUBJECT SELECTION, INCORPORATING LONGER TERM STUDIES, INCORPORATING MULTIPLE MODES OF EXERCISE, AND BY CONDUCTING OBSERVATIONAL AND SURVEY STUDIES, THE RESEARCH CAN BE MADE MORE APPLICABLE TO REAL-WORLD COACHING.
