About the Author

Tudor O. Bompa, PhD, is recognized as the world's foremost expert on periodization training. He developed the concept of periodization of strength in Romania in 1963 as he helped the Eastern Bloc countries rise to dominance in the athletic world. Since then, Bompa has used his system in training 11 Olympic and world championship medalists and elite athletes.

Professor emeritus at York University in Toronto, Bompa has authored several books on physical conditioning, including the second edition of Serious Strength Training, Periodization Training for Sports, and Total Training for Young Champions as well as numerous articles on the subject. He has made presentations on periodization training in more than 30 countries. His publications, conferences, and ideas are highly regarded and sought out by many top professional athletes and training specialists. Bompa and his wife, Tamara, live in Sharon, Ontario.

G. Gregory Haff, PhD, is an assistant professor of exercise physiology in the School of Medicine at West Virginia University in Morgantown. Haff has published more than 50 articles, centering his research on performance effects in the areas of strength training, cycling, and nutritional supplementation.

A frequent presenter at national conferences on the topic of periodization, Haff was invited to present his research on the periodization of strength training in the United Kingdom in 2008. Haff also received a Distinguished Teaching Award from West Virginia University School of Medicine in 2008. In 2001, he was the recipient of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Young Investigator of the Year Award.

Haff applies his research as a regional weightlifting coach, level 3 cycling coach, and certified strength and conditioning specialist with distinction. He has also worked as a coach and consultant for national-level and international-level weightlifters and cyclists as well as numerous collegiate athletes.

A fellow of the NSCA, Haff has served on the association's board of directors since 2007. He is also a member of the European College of Sports Science. Haff served on the USA Weightlifting Sports Medicine Committee (1998-2004), USA Weightlifting Sport Science Committee (1997-2004), NSCA Research Committee (2000-2006), and United States Olympic Committee Performance Enhancement Team for Weightlifting (2003-2004).

A competitive weightlifter at the national level for 14 years, Haff continues to enjoy weightlifting in his free time as well as cycling and cooking. Haff resides in Morgantown, West Virginia, with his wife, Erin.
