This is a long one guys! Jump to 7:54 to skip the ‘Periodization definitions’ recap and jump right into the progression examples.
I’ll continue to mention (and re-mention) the conceptual ideas surrounding linear periodization for strength training because it needs to be at the front of your mind whenever you plan your program. The progression examples I give later in the video are taken from some of the highest performing lifters and coaches on the planet. They drive home the point that, no matter how different certain programs may seem, they all share common principles that make them effective.
