periodization training for sports

Tudor Bompa, Ph.D with Carlo Buzzichelli

Sport conditioning has advanced tremendously since the era when a “no pain, no gain” philosophy guided the training regimens of athletes. Dr. Tudor Bompa pioneered most of these breakthroughs, proving long ago that it's not only how much and how hard an athlete works but also when and what work is done that determine an athlete's conditioning level. Periodization Training for Sports goes beyond the simple application of bodybuilding or powerlifting programs to build strength in athletes.

Sprint Academy - The Science of Training Young Athletes

the science of training young athletes (i & II)

Dr. Chris Brooks - Coaching Science Coordinator for USATF

Seventy percent of kids drop out of sports before their high school graduation. Only 15% leave because they feel they are not good enough. Almost 70% leave because they were not having fun, or due to problems with the coach. Injuries cause 30% to give up sports.

This course is packed with practical sports science information to provide youth coaches and parents with pediatric sports science insights to successfully retain young athletes and develop their sport potential while avoiding injury and overtraining.
