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.

This information together with the other information presented, reflect the long-term practical work that has periodizqtion done with East European mostly Soviet and Western coaches and athletes. J Sports Med Phys Fit At periodizzation time the traditional training periodization, as a division of the whole seasonal program into smaller periods and training units, was proposed and elucidated. 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.
Well, BP is a tool and every tool have its problem for which is determined to fix. Furthermore, the descriptions of approaches to planning of the training phases and annual training is being discussed, taking into account phases of the acclimatization and re-acclimatization, along with three main goals of AT taken into account.
From the general point of view these training stages look like miniature annual cycles by including a block resembling the preparatory period, a block resembling the competitive period and ends with tapering. 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. Mental preparation Recovery Periods of recovery needed for adaptation. Anyway, I hardly imagine that BP can be used in team sports with such a long competition period and short preparatory kssurin, although there are some interesting concepts and ideas like mini-blocks, compatibility and sequencing of training modalities, designing of a microcycle that could also be use in more traditional or complex-parallel periodization.
Block periodization versus traditional training theory: a review.
The trials and successful experiences of prominent coaches and researchers led to alternative training concepts and, ultimately, to a reformed training approach that was called block periodization BP. Specifically, the accumulation, transmutation and realization mesocycles are described with respect to the sequencing of various microcycles.
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. Paper is high quality and the font is large 12pts with large line spacing, which allows for easier reading.
It is hypothesized that different types of mesocycle-blocks are suitable to various modes of biological adaptation, i. Vladimir Koprivica during my studies.
Block Periodization 2 by Dr. Issurin – Dr. Yessis SportLab
This peiodization is controversial to complex design where many abilities are developed simultaneously. More sport-specific examples should have been introduced. Boock — 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.
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.
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.
Further, the three types of mesocycles proposed by BPC are considered with respect to duration, content and monitoring of training. Every chapter has a summary of the main topics discussed and references used in it. There is a clear description of terms and ideas used by traditional theory, along with contradictions and consequences of such approach. If you are currently not a member, then I would like to invite you to become one.
It consolidates empirically proved positions with the most up-to-date scientific knowledge. General principles of BPC are discussed, and issuin new way of structuring the annual cycle with three types of mesocycle blocks accumulation, transmutation and realization is explained.
Modeled periodziation Speed Tactics Mental preparation. The chapter proceeds on a discussion regarding general principles of AT and the definition of three main goals of AT: Similarly, utilization of a CU program by elite swimmers did not lead to substantial enhancement of their peak performances.
I am a physical preparation coach from Belgrade, Serbia, grew up in Pula, Croatia which I consider my home town. Unlike this limitation, the multi-targeted BP system prompted a beneficial increase isdurin specific preparedness in sports and disciplines in which peak performances require the application of many targeted athletic abilities.
The common approach to long-term athletic preparation assumes there are four separate stages. Aerobic endurance Basic coordination General strength.
Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training
Strength endurance Power Special endurance Periodizaation threshold …… Tapering: The chapter finishes with guidelines for structuring an altitude preparation program. Ultimately, two BP training models were proposed: At the end of the book there is a small glossary for most important terms used in the book.

He has written over scientific articles in national and international journals and over 50 international presentations. Low issurim, intensity high Testing battery Tests for basic abilities.

They are preliminary preparation, initial specialization, advanced specialization and sports perfection. Long-term preparation In chapter 4 there are discussions regarding annual plan, quadrennial cycle, sport longevity and long-term preparation of young athletes. Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, This new approach has been implemented in various sports and has led to outstanding athletic achievements.
There is also very interesting and clear load related classification to developmental, retentional and restorational load.
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 periocization appropriate microcycles, which should show hlock separate, not complex, distribution of workloads taking into account their reciprocal interactions and expected residuals.
I was involved in physical preparation of professional, amateur and recreational athletes of various ages in sports periodizatuon as basketball, soccer, volleyball, martial arts and tennis. The book is in soft cover and A4 format.
For example, if the training cycle was targeted to development of maximal power, the testing batery should include maximal power testing. Sports Med The most important and fundamental principle of block periodization is the concentration of the training workloads.
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: There is an explanation of load variation in microcylces wave-shape design and discussion on the number of peaks within microcycle.
