    Author Information
    Tudor O. Bompa, PhD, is recognised 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 and world championship medalists and elite athletes. A full professor at York University in Toronto, Bompa has authored several important books on physical conditioning, including Serious Strength Training, Second Edition, Periodization Training for Sports and Total Training for Young Champions as well as numerous articles on the subject. He has made presentations on periodization training in more than 30 countries. G. Gregory Haff, PhD, is an assistant professor of exercise physiology in the School of Medicine at West Virginia University in Morgantown. Haff has published more than 50 articles, focusing his research on performance effects in the areas of strength training, cycling, and nutritional supplementation. A frequent presenter at national conferences on the topic of periodization, Haff was invited to present his research on the periodization of strength training in the United Kingdom in 2008. Haff also received a Distinguished Teaching Award from West Virginia University School of Medicine in 2008.
