Simplification of Periodization Tip # 15: Recent studies show that even stabilizer training must be specific to the target movement that the program aim to develop.  It is through the needs analysis that we understand the role of the stabilizing musculature in each movement pattern.

Simplification of Periodization Tip # 16: Instability in the landing can slow down the contact time during jumps that is one reason for emphasizing stability in landings before power in take-offs in a macro cycle.

 PS: If you are not quite sure, why periodization is so great then takes a look at our free video course “The Most Useful Definition of Periodization and The 4 Reason that you MUST base your programs on Periodization if you want to see the best possible results for your athletes/clients”.
