Abstract

Periodisation of training has been repeatedly shown to elicit greater gains in performance than non-periodised training. Considering the lack of comparative studies on periodisation methods, the aim of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of two periodisation methods on endurance running performance. Following 12 weeks of training, no significant differences were found between linear or reverse periodisation for improvements to performance. However, both periodised groups had greater improvements to performance than unregulated training highlighting the Importance or planned training structure.
