The strength training strategy of linear periodization has long been recognized as an efficient system of resistance training. But-until now-no one had researched the potential benefits of a nonlinear periodization training program. Authors William Kraemer and Steven Fleck delve into nonlinear, or undulating, periodization to examine how a systematic session-by-session change of training intensity and volume can improve performance beyond what is expected with traditional weight training. They explain how nonlinear periodization works and then demonstrate how to create nonlinear periodization training programs. Fitness professionals and coaches will discover that this unique training style…
