Virtual Trainer: Periodization in Strength Training

Seiji (pronounced SayGee) Ishii of returns this week with a timely article on Periodization for Strength Training.  We have already covered the topic of general Periodization; now CoachSeiji will break it down even further, concentrating specifically on strength training.

The lack of a bridge between these theories and their practical, everyday application is partly to blame. CoachSeiji is here to supply the bridge whether you train for racing or just for your general health. This article covers the basics and offers training plans rooted in the theory of periodization. Go to to read the complete article.
