I have one of Tudor Bompa's books and played a little bit with periodization last season. I'm not ambitious enough to keep detailed records and need something simpler. This year I'll try alternating 1 month of heavier lifting and fewer reps, and 1 month of lighter lifting and more reps and more sets. I'll try to schedule it so the heavy lifting period ends 2 weeks before this season's big meet (PNA champs in April) when I'll begin my taper.

    My own advice -- for what it is worth -- is schedule it so that you have 2 weeks of the lighter lifting to finish 2 weeks before PNA.

    Going from heavy to no lifting is pretty abrupt. They call it "tapering" after all...
