  • Mesocycles Course – Lesson 5: Polarized Training

    By on 09/07/2020

    Polarized training is established planning concept in endurance training. See how it can be applied to strength training in this video by Mike Tuchscherer

  • Mesocycles Course – Lesson 4: Block Periodization

    By on 16/06/2020

    What is the difference between linear periodization calling for hypertrophy, strength and power phases, and the “block periodization”? Both are sequential, but what are the similarities and differences? Find out in this insightful video by Mike Tuchscherer.

  • Mesocycles Course – Lesson 3: Undulating Periodization

    By on 05/06/2020

    Daily Undulating periodizaton was few years back a hot topic of forum talks and research papers. It is time to revisit this useful planning strategy by checking Mike Tuchscherers review of the common implementations. Mike explains the difference between “phase” and “rep” undulations and provide overview of the strength and weaknesses of DUP in powerlifting.

  • 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.

  • Mesocycles Course – Lesson 1: Programming Structure

    By on 15/05/2020

    Before jumping right into linear, block, and other periodizations strategies, it is important to understand the “programming structure”. In this video Mike Tuchscherer outlines his “Six Steps” system that is necessary for building a training cycle, as well as understanding different frameworks.

  • Microcycles Course – Module 6: GPP Programming

    By on 04/05/2020

    In this module, Mike Tuchscherer explains his viewpoints on General Physical Preparation (GPP) methods for powerlifters and other strength specialists.

  • Microcycles Course – RTS Toolkit

    By on 23/04/2020

    In this module, Mike Tuchscherer explains Auto-regulation tools and methods but mainly focuses on Rate-Of-Perceived-Effort (RPE).

  • Microcycles Course: Template Design

    By on 06/04/2020

    In this video, Mike Tuchscherer is providing practical advice for planning the week. According to Mike, the template is not a program, but the order of work for a given week. To design an efficient template, follow these six steps explained in this lesson.

  • Microcycles Course: Background Knowledge

    By on 22/03/2020

    In these two videos of the Microcycles Course, Mike Tuchscherer is providing an overview of the needed background knowledge. This includes the discussion on the principles of training: specificity, overload, fatigue management, variation, periodization, and a quick mention of the auto-regulations.

  • Rethinking Performance Training & Agile Periodization – Part 3

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 01/04/2019

    Continuing the previous video on the topics of quality, constructs, rate limiters, bottlenecks, as well as how we use them to approach planning, I am expanding the discussion and dig more into phenomenology and Grand Unified Theory of training.
