When is the best time for a competitive athlete to gain muscle mass? Gain strength? Both? What about in-season training - how can we maintain or make gains in the midst of the competitive season? Not to worry, during this ClinicalAthlete Webinar, Dr. Mike Israetel will walk us through the periodization of strength training programs for athletes who manage one or more competitive sports seasons. 

Webinar Outline:

  • Why it's not the best idea just to "train for the sport and train in the weight room" without considering interactions between the two.
  • How each phase of the periodized resistance and sport training process should look for best results
  • What the phases of periodized, sport-specific resistance training look like and how they integrate with periodized training for the sport itself
  • How needs analysis yield different priorities of resistance training depending on the sport
