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.

Main characteristics of the three types of blocks-mesocycles modified from Issurin, Mental preparation Recovery Periods of recovery needed for adaptation.
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. Low volume, intensity high Testing battery Tests for basic abilities.
Block Periodization: Breakthrough in Sport Training
Discipline specific if possible Tests for sport-specific abilities Tests for speed, event strategy, ……. Accoding to the level of the athlete it means world championships, Olympics, National championships, national junior championships etc. 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.
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.
Based on above mentioned considerations, the annual cycle design can be presented as the sequence of the training blocks, where similar aims can be presented as the sequence of more or less autonomous stages, where similar aims can be obtained by means of a partially renewed and qualitatively improved training program Issurin, 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.
In case the competition is not possible, it should be substituted with a testing battery, specific for the aims of the training cycle.
Block periodization versus traditional training theory: a review.
For example, if the training cycle was targeted to development of maximal power, the testing batery should include maximal power testing. Sportlyzer Academy garners the best training planning and analysis practices for rowers and rowing coaches.
Block Periodization Page Discussion History. The most important and fundamental principle of block periodization is the concentration of the training workloads.
This principle is controversial to complex design where many abilities are developed simultaneously. 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: 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.
