When designing programs to enhance strength, there are many variables that you can (and should) manipulate to facilitate improvement. These can obviously include the sets and reps (volume), loads (intensity), frequency, and rest time (density). However, how we periodize these variables is also very important. Periodization is the systematic structuring of how you plan on manipulating these variables over time. But the real question still remains - does strength training periodization even matter? And if so, what type of periodization is best?
