Stoopid Simple Periodization Trick For Getting Strong, Fast

Stoopid Simple Periodization Trick For Getting Strong, Fast

Did I ever tell you about a stupid simple periodization method used by some of the best hockey players on the planet?

I picked it up from the strength and conditioning consultant of the New York Rangers a few years back.

He in turn learned it from his mentor - a famous Canadian strength coach - who trained guys like Hart Trophy winner Chris Pronger, "Rocket" Richard Trophy winner Keith Tkachuk and Stanley Cup champ Doug Weight back in the late 90's.

Periodization for athletes is a hot topic today. And if you've done any reading on the topic online, you can't help but have heard all the big, confusing words thrown around like empty promises at a Republican rally:

* Linear periodization

* Concurrent periodization

* Conjugate periodization

Much of the textbook information out there on training periodization originates from Eastern Europe and is aimed at track and field athletes who may have one, two, three major competitions, tops, during a calendar year.

These athletes attempt to peak at just the right time for a Diamond League competition, the World Championships, or the Olympics.

Which simply isn't practical for a hockey player who needs to be on top of his game for months on end during the regular season and the playoffs.

Thus, such complicated periodization models are of no use to us.

Don't ye worry, jefe...
