I am looking for reference material which will assist me in designing an effective and enjoyable 52 week training program which focuses on hypertrophy over strength and power, and predominantly on gaining circumference of the upper arms, thighs, and chest muscles. Periodization charts, graphs, tables, week by week ideas for keeping the program interesting are what I am looking for. Thanks.
First, decide on what your training goals are and your beginning (through assessments tied to those goals) and ending points will be. There are many, many good books and articles on “periodization” which is what you are trying to establish here. Although periodization is essentially an approach primarily designed to train athletes, it is directly applicable to your desire to establish a 52-week training program. In short, this approach breaks-down your 52-week goals into bite-sized mini-programs throughout the year (macro, meso and micro cycles).
I hope this helps.
