Strength and conditioning periodization in sport

ISCI – Sport Strength Coach™

certification course

This course can be useful to you if:

  • if you are a trainer/coach who wants to learn how to periodize training to achieve maximum performance in the most important competitions of your sport;
  • if you want to get practical insights into how to use the theory you studied in college;
  • if you want to learn and use the methodology of élite training, useful in any sport;
  • if you want to understand which are the most important ingredients to become an élite in the field of training.

If you want to give a practical meaning to the theory you studied, this is the course for you.
It often happens that after many years of study, you have a good knowledge, but you strive to use it in a practical way.

If you want to learn HOW to periodize, that is to plan and program training in your sport, in a correct and professional evidence-based way, this is your course!

What are you going to learn?

The ISCI course will teach you how to use everything you studied, starting from the most meaningful theory and giving it a practical meaning.

The goal is to teach you a scientific methodology to periodize, that is, to plan and program,  any kind of sport, according to the sport performance model (bioenergetic systems analysis, exercise neurophysiology and exercise biomechanics).

In particular, you will learn about:

  • Periodization, that is, how to plan and program training, how to set the most important training variables (intensity, volume, frequency, etc.) to get the adaptations you need based on the specific sport and the phase of the year. You will learn to periodize the most important biomotor abilities, that is, strength, speed, and endurance.
  • Exercise biomechanics, that is, to find the most important exercises in your sport; why and how to do an exercise in a way instead of another;
  • Exercise neurophysiology, that is, to understand which are the factors that influence sport performance; in particular, the principles of strength and training.

As Sport Strength Coach™, you are going to learn:

  • The theory of periodization and how to write annual plans for your sport;
  • The most important physiological adaptations to look for in strength training, and how to design the training program in order to get them;
  • How to plan each phase of training based on the competitive calendar;
  • How to periodize strength training in different sports;
  • Which training methods you can use in each training phase of your annual training plan;
  • How to analyze your sport to understand what is the specific strength that you need to train;
  • How to set training variables such as intensity, volume, and frequency to get peak performance in every sport.

In summary, you will learn how to write an annual training plan, that you can use as guideline to be folllowed to program each training session!
