A. Program Periodisation is an organised approach to training that involves progressive cycling of various aspects of a program during a specific period. Meaning, instead of doing the same exercises over and over, we introduce new movements as you progress through your training experience to increase movement skill.

This challenges your brain and muscles in different ways and to ensure a constant progression in your level of fitness. Our annual program is periodised, which is referred to a macrocycle, and broken into 4, 12 week mesocycles.

The macrocycle consists of all 52 weeks of your annual plan and therefore includes 4 mesocycles which are like stages of a periodized training program. For example, mobility, endurance, strength and recovery.

A mesocycle represents a specific block of training that is designed to accomplish a particular goal. For example, a mesocycle that is specifically designed to enhance your skill in certain movement disciplines.

A microcycle is the shortest training cycle, typically consisting of a few weeks with the goal of facilitating a focused block of training. An example of this is an muscle hypertrophy or strength block.
