Main criteria of a yearly training plan


In a big training cycle (such as annual or semi-annual) there are usually three periods: preparatory, competition and transition. Initially, it was the competition calendar and climatic conditions that were thought to be the main reasons for the periodical changes in the training process. However, a thorough analysis has shown that neither these nor other external factors determine the essence of training as these factors are not sufficient to explain the periodization fundamentals. An important point to recognize is that, according to concepts proposed by former eastern bloc experts (Novikov A.D., Matveev L. P., Ozolin N. G., Farfel V. S., T. Bompa and I. Baliy), the reasons for the cyclic alteration of training periods are primarily for the regularities of athletic shape development.
