About the Author:

Tudor Bompa is recognized worldwide as the foremost expert on periodization training. He first developed the concept of “periodization of strength” in Romania in 1963, as he helped the eastern bloc countries rise to dominance in the athletic world. Since then, Bompa has used his system to train 11 Olympic Games medalists, and periodization training has become a standard method for conditioning champion athletes.

A full professor at York University in Toronto, Bompa has authored several important books on physical conditioning, including Serious Strength Training (Human Kinetics, 1998), Periodization: Theory and Methodology of Training (Human Kinetics, 1999), and Power Training for Sport: Plyometrics for Maximum Power Development, as well as numerous articles on the subject. His work has been translated into nine languages, and he has made presentations on training theories, planning, and periodization in more than 30 countries. His publications, conferences, and ideas are highly regarded and enthusiastically sought after by many top professional athletes and training specialists. Bompa is married and lives in Sharon, Ontario

Bompa currently offers a certification program in training, planning, and periodization called “The Tudor Bompa Training System.” The program is designed for personal trainers, instructors, coaches, athletes, and educators.
