Training Periodization with Dr. Greg Haff
In this week's episode of Powering Performance, we are joined by Dr. Greg Haff, Course Coordinator for the Masters of Exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning) at Edith Cowan University. Tune in to hear about Greg's presentation at the NSCA's periodization conference, his idea of emphasis periodization and how he sees Strength and Conditioning evolving.
Ways to listen:
Check out these three highlights:1.Greg speaks about his presentation at the NSCA's Periodization Conference.
"When they start to say periodization doesn't work, it's because they've taken out the constructs that make it work and created almost a self-fulfilling prophecy."
2. Greg shares how he has worked with Duncan French in identifying physiological characteristics of fighters and tactical professionals and the idea of emphasis periodization.
"You don't know when the competition is going to be. So they have to be at some level of readiness all the time."
3. Greg discusses how he envisions the strength and conditioning profession evolving in the coming years.
"My hope is that we are able to stay the course and focus on strength coaches and not just meandering around a bit as far as organizational structures go. I'd like to see the world unite in a more comprehensive way."
