The Performance Intelligence Research Initiative (PIRI) is excited to embark on new research for planning and programming!
In sports, planning and programming for physical training alongside technical and tactical sequences is supposed to be an easy practice—especially when you have been doing this for a long time. If you’re working with Olympic sports and preparing for some yearly competition, there are a lot of resources in terms of training programming and periodization, and much that can be done to help athletes reach their maximum potential.
- When do you program your speed sessions—before or after the extensive travels of the international break?
- Do you run the aerobic conditioning phase when players return from holidays (the week before the season kick-off), or during the Christmas break (which could be the only week off you may have)?
- Should you fit your strength block periodization in between the Cup game on Tuesday and the away game next week?
In short, programming in team sports is very complex.
- All questions are related to the team you are in charge of. If you have a transversal role across multiple teams, please make sure that you state which team your responses are related to.
- We are asking for your actual practices (not what is intended and should be done in the ideal world!).
We look forward to sharing the results of our research with you.
