Periodization Quick Tip # 5(Part I): I while ago a national level discus thrower asked me to look at his program. I recognized who this athlete’s strength coach had been trained by. The program was a “coach X”-program, not a program for a discus thrower (rotary movements were missing). 

PS: My recommended introduction to periodization is our free video course “The Most Useful Definition of Periodization and The 4 Reason that you MUST base your programs on Periodization if you want to see the best possible results for your athletes/clients”. Get it at (email required)
