Scientific Foundations and Practical Applications of Periodization With HKPropel Access
Author: G. Gregory Haff
Written by G. Gregory Haff, a world-leading expert on periodization, Scientific Foundations and Practical Applications of Periodization incorporates the latest scientific evidence to provide a comprehensive understanding of how to implement planning and programming strategies to enhance physiological adaptations. While other periodization books may discuss training theory, few provide information on how to integrate various training models into the periodization process. Here are just some of the approaches incorporated into Scientific Foundations and Practical Applications of Periodization:
- Employing and blending parallel, sequential, and emphasis periodization models to develop athletes
- Syncing recovery strategies with various phases and periods of training to enhance the adaptational process
- Manipulating nutritional strategies to magnify performance
- Using and interpreting monitoring data to adjust an athlete’s program in accordance with the periodized plan
Get the most comprehensive resource about periodization ever written, and use scientific evidence to take your periodization programming to the next level with Scientific Foundations and Practical Applications of Periodization.

All ancillaries are free to adopting instructors through HKPropel.
Presentation package. Features PowerPoint slides of text, artwork, and tables from the book that can be used for class discussion and presentation. The slides in the presentation package can be used directly within PowerPoint or printed to make handouts for students. Instructors can easily add, modify, and rearrange the order of the slides.
Image bank. Includes most of the figures and tables from the text, sorted by chapter. These can be used in developing a customized presentation based on specific course requirements.
Instructors also receive access to all student materials in HKPropel. For Scientific Foundations and Practical Applications of Periodization, this includes sample periodization templates and directions on how to use them to create annual training, mesocycle, and microcycle plans. The templates are available as automated Excel files that help you easily design periodized programs.
