Develop a year-long (52 week) training program for the athlete described below. You will be developing the overall periodization plan by determining what phases and cycles will be followed working back from the last powerlifting completion. The length of each phase and cycle as well as the specific workouts within them will vary depending on the sport/event (powerlifting).
Create the off-season, pre-season and in-season phases/cycles for the athlete using the principles of periodization.
These should include the duration of each part of the yearly plan in number of weeks that each part is followed with an overview of the relative volume, intensity, and energy systems emphasized.
The rationale must explained in at least one paragraph for each phase and/or cycle. Furthermore, any assessments planned during or following each phase should be explained with a detailed rationale (and supporting references).
You can also provide a chart/graph for each “season” of the schedule as way of organizing it.
