    Have not looked into that one yet but have seen it pop up here and there. Keep me posted when you start the WS program.

    I think that was periodization....

    It wasn't the right choice at the time... for my short term goal. Any type of periodization is solid for strength IMO.

    Yea.. conjugated periodization

    Westsude a philsophy and atmosphere created. they implement russian conjugate periodization which has been slightly modified for powerlifters by the great louie simmons (im going to a clinic in a few months he's presenting at!!) -- joe defranco uses a further modification for athletes

    they basically train all aspects of muscle at the same time -- rather than splitting it into cycles/waves like is common -- the thought is if you don't train it you lose it, which is true. so if you follow western periodization, you train hypertrophy for awhile, switch to strength (and lose hypertrophy), than switch to power (and lose hypertrophy + strength) - than peak for an event (which will be a piss poor peak) - enter a recovery period and repeat the cycle. in my opinion this periodization is only ideal for a short period of time with true beginners - aka: it's pathetic

    conjugate periodization includes repeated efforts (endurance-hypertrophy), dynamic efforts (power), and maximal efforts (strength) into a cyclical program design



    Known as the Conjugate Sequence System, the Soviets were able to develop it so thoroughly that
    results as above were commonplace. Initially, the System involves a concurrent training of several motor
    abilities (means) or a wide multi-lateral skill developmental approach. This provides the base framework
    for the neurological construction of all subsequently developed motor skills. As the athlete passes through
    maturation and is able to functionally specialize, a foundational motor skill pool exists from which the
    athlete is able to pull. Future adaptive restructuring is highly specific and is dependant upon the ability to
    maintain strength and skill qualities already gained while raising limiting motor qualities. The Conjugate
    approach is emp loyed to control and consistently redirect the desired specific training-effect. This is
    preservation procedure and is accomplished by simultaneously training all necessary motor abilities with a
    constant renewal and reestablishing process, promoting a steady, permanent adaptation while securing the
    desired training-effect, thus elevating the athlete’s functional potential.
