hi,
i just finished reading the book and was highly impressed with the functional simplicity of the material. breaks down the problems with conventional periodization programs and creates a new, simpler, more effective programming.
the material isnt simple but the manner in which it is presented makes it easy to understand and should help any coach or athlete better guide themselves to create training programs that are effective and effecient.
i am a full time kettlebell lifting coach and this information is instantly applicable to the success of my lifters.
best wishes,
kev

Having heard Valdimir Issurn in lecture I was excited about his book coming to print and trust me this book answered all questions about block training methods that I had. An excellent addition to any high level coaches library.

Format: Paperback
Issurin's Block Periodization gives an easy layout to understand the deep subject of block periodization. He lays out each layer of the process of developing the annual or 4 year plan for the athlete. He gives you everything from how to create the year plan, to the block setup, to the weekly, and daily breakdown of your training. He also explains the idea of using residuals to move from one block to the next. There is a lot of great information in this book for anyone who wants to learn more about this type of training.

What does this product claim?
-----------------------------

The basis of contemporary training was founded several decades ago when scientific knowledge was far from complete and athletes' workloads, results, and demands were much lower then they are currently. At that time the traditional training periodization, as a division of the whole seasonal program into smaller periods and training units, was proposed and elucidated.
