A model of periodisation: optimising performance and recovery in the elite 100m sprinter
In the field of strength and conditioning, we are constantly exposed to new ideas and methods. The focus of this manuscript is to take a step back and look at a systemised way to develop a scientifically sound model of periodisation for the elite level 100m sprinter. In developing this model of periodisation, we will review the current science that surrounds the study of yearly planning, the sport demands and needs of the 100m sprinter, as well as a look at a practical model for immediate application. It is important to note, that while this paper is specifically about sprinting, it is also about the thought process that goes into developing a sound yearly plan, and many of the concepts can be applied to other sports.
