Most definitely from a periodization perspective. However, aside from altering intensity and volume, periodization's other goal is to use the musculature and the energy systems in the most specific way possible to maximize the improvement in whatever you're training for (usually a particular sport). In the case of developing power, this would ultimately mean doing the power movements that emulate what you are trying to build power in.

Re: Leg Power - Increased performance

I don't mean to bring this seemingly boring thread back, but I wanted to correct or expand on something I said before.

I was talking about the Velocity-Force graph and how 30% of both velocity and force together produce peak power. While this is true, achieving those numbers would equate to 50 to 80% of a 1RM, depending on the exercise (as opposed to just 30% -- I can't remember if I gave the impression if that was the case but I wanted to clarify).

Re: Leg Power - Increased performance

Just a question from a noob, would his endurance work not be counterproductive
for the strentgh work. I am in a similar situation now with doing a lot of endurance work as a neo triathlete an only supplement with strength endurance with mostly bodyweight.

(Please excuse my english)

Hey there.

The basic question of "Will exercise targeting muscular endurance be counterproductive to exercise with a goal of building muscular strength?", is yes, it is counterproductive based on the principle of specificity of training.

Let me know if there is/are more question(s) on the matter.
