Traditional periodization follows an optimal sequence based on the time course of training adaptations. Understanding this will help you set your training load, and time physiological adaptions better.
The episode ideas used in this episode come from Alan Couzens and include Maximal Athletic Development, the time course of training adaptions, and influence curves. These will help you to plan your training for optimal performance gains within the linear periodization model.
