Periodisation ... an organised division of training ... that can be allocated to blocks of activity.
But here’s the kicker: Linear periodization required 10more weeks and 120 additional hours of training toachieve the results of block periodization. Block requiredonly about half of the volume.The same results in half the time means that theadvanced athlete can accomplish a lot more in training ina given time. Link
