Back in November I highlighted Jon Rhode's Smarter Goals Can Increase Performance article on the HighPerformance.Pro web site. It was insightful, and of use to parents as well as fencers. Jon's just published a new article entitled Periodisation – Intelligent Training. The article describes how to structure your training. Jon discusses how he goes about preparing a training plan for his clients, taking account of competitive events across the year, and creating cyclical activities of varying duration: macrocycles, mesocycles and microcycles.
This article helps ECfencers understand how Jon plans ECfencing activities across the fencing year, but also helps active parents think about their own training plans.
