STAR Blog #7 – The importance of periodisation

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

To get the most out of your training program, you need to understand the basic principles of periodisation training.

Just going to the gym and exercising can help you in a short amount of time.

But without a plan, it will eventually stagnate.

It’s a simple fact to get your hands on the best version of yourself from fresh legs and a resting body.

Strong athletic performance creates a better adaptation of the more strain on the system. You need to rest to get that performance. Think 2 steps forward, 1 step back.

It is up to each athlete and coach to improve the management of each hard training capacity and rest. With a track record of successfully achieving training goals, periodisation has been used by coaches and trainers with over 50 years of training.

Research has shown that periodisation can produce far superior results than straight-set training and regular on-going training. Periodisation is a training system used to prevent overtraining and reduce the risk of injury by slowly progressing from one step to the next.

First, it runs more reps using lightweight (or just weight). And you gradually move with heavier weight and less manpower.

Periodisation can be defined as a system for designing programs for planning appropriate cycles and training stages, constructing routines, and accomplishing your goals.

That’s why STAR can assist with your lighter training sessions. From our body assessment service to our stretch, massage guns and general recovery services, we can prioritise your lighter training session to help you be #AtYourBest for your heavier training program.
