Buddy/Coach X,

Great to have you back. You have had such an impact/influence on my career. I appreciate your willingness to deliver information on here and elsewhere. I'm sure if/when we cross paths again, you'll rib on me about the Sky Bar incident.

Now to the question, with all of the different influences you've had, and I'm sure articles and books you've read, since we last spoke, I have a question:

Concurrent Periodization or Block Periodization? And why?

Glad to have you back,


Dr. Mann, first congrads on your doctorate and the Skybar incident will forever be etched in my mind. I mean who the fuck pulls out a pen and starts asking questions while writing the respnses on a napkin. I'll tell you who, someone who has a strong desire to get better. Here's my thoughts on block periodization and why i don't use it for team sports. For motor learning yes, bio energetically no. Team spirts add technical and tactical complexity making them more challenging! Block periodization ( issurin) is good for rowing, swimming and some track and field. This is why i perfer Charlie Francis vertical integration which is quasi block training. Allan DeGennaro and i have talked about this extensively.
