  • Mesocycles Course – Lesson 2: Linear Periodization

    By on 29/05/2020

    Linear Periodization is one of the most widely used planning strategies but at the same time one of the most confusing. In this video, Mike Tuchscherer clears some confusion and provides a rationale for when and how to use linear periodization in strength training planning.

  • Mobility as a Warm Up Routine

    By on 22/05/2020

    We warm up to prepare our bodies for physical exertion. Several studies have found benefits of including a structured warm-up into training, which provides for increased heart rate, blood flow, increased body temperature, faster muscular contraction, etc. The body is thus prepared for the upcoming workout or competition, both physically and mentally.
