Periodization of Flexibility Training 

There are many texts available on flexibility training. However, this course is the only one that discusses the critical concept of periodization of flexibility training in a science-based, yet practical format. Periodization of Flexibility Training offers practical tools to strength coaches and personal trainers to help them master common scenarios encountered with their athletes/fitness clients such as: 

  • a seeming inability to perform exercises correctly despite being given the ‘right” cues.

  • a lack of motivation (for flexibility training).

  • too many overuse injuries.

FPM PROGRAM DESIGN SPECIALIST - Move Better
Needs Analysis for Sports 

Traditionally, guidelines on how to perform a needs analysis are either described in very technical terms in a biomechanics book or on a few pages in a training textbooks. In contrast, Needs Analysis: The Foundation of Success with the Flexible Periodization Method is the most comprehensive, yet practical course on how to create a needs analysis you will find anywhere. It offers practical tools to strength coaches and personal trainers to help them master common scenarios encountered with their athletes/fitness clients such as: 

  • Challenging goals that are new to the trainer.

  • Resistance to embrace the training philosophy.

  • Improved numbers in the weight room without improvement in sports performance.

Beyond Functonal Training: Periodization of Exercise Selection

Beyond Fucntional Training proides 8 guidelines for transfer of training effects, discuss the different exercise needs of beginner and advanced athlete-clients, and develop your skill to develop programs with exercises that effectively build on the training effect of previous exercises assigned to your client-athletes.

It is not about IF your athletes or clients need maximal strength. It is about HOW they need maximal strength and for what purpose. 

  • Towards the end of his life, my father stuggled with walking up and down stairs and getting out of a chair using the strength of his legs alone.

  • At another end of the spectrum my work with powerlifters finds them seeking maximal strength to exceed their personal best.

  • I also work with other atheltes who seek maximal strength to improve their ability to perform high amounts of sport-specific practice with maximal quality and without injury.

The Flexible Periodization Method is about MORE than training. It is about UNDERSTANDING what it takes to develop a truly individualized training program that fits one athlete and not the other. It details advanced and holistic dimensions of periodization and presents a comprehensive and flexible system, that will guide the approach to periodization in the future. The Flexible Periodization Method is evidence based, but also builds on extensive experience with Olympic level athletes. 

This is the original Flexible Periodization Method book that was released in 2010. The book gives an overview of the 4 main parts of the Flexible Periodization Method and also contains our most updated work on power, speed and endurance training. (In contrast, our most updated work on periodization principles can be found in Periodization Simplified.)
