For your Week 4 assignment you will develop a year-long (52 week) training program for the athlete you began training for the Week 2 Athlete Analysis Assignment. For Week 4 you will be developing the overall periodization plan by determining what phases and cycles will be followed working back from the competitive season or the last competition (or signature event) or event your athlete competes in. The length of each phase and cycle as well as the specific workouts within them will vary depending on the sport/event.
For Assignments 3 and 4 you will be developing the details within them in regards to the specific training variables, workouts, and competitions.
Your year-long program will be based on the athlete analysis you completed for
Create the off-season, pre-season and in-season phases/cycles for the athlete using the principles of periodization.
These should include the duration of each part of the yearly plan in number of weeks that each part is followed with an overview of the relative volume, intensity, and energy systems emphasized.
The rationale must explained in at least one paragraph for each phase and/or cycle. Furthermore, any assessments planned during or following each phase should be explained with a detailed rationale (and supporting references).
You can also provide a chart for each “season” of the schedule as way of organizing it of which the â€œdetailsâ€ will be filled in from Assignments 3 and 4.
Please use at least 5 appropriate outside sources to help you develop this program and the paper will be submitted as one combined single WORD document in APA format.
