Gymchat 240 - Periodization (Karsten Jensen)

Periodization. It's quite possibly a term you've heard before, but what exactly is it? How did it start, and what's involved?


Periodization. It's quite possibly a term you've heard before, but what exactly is it? How did it start, and what's involved?
This week we'll be discussing this area in detail, answering all of the above and a whole lot more (we'll answer as many of your questions as we can - just jump in the Q&A, which'll appear during the discussion itself).

Taking us through the entire process is Strength Coach Karsten Jensen, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.

NB : In addition to the questions, we'd love to hear your comments & suggestions. If there's a particular area you'd like Karsten and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and drop us a line.

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
