State bodybuilde­rs undergo Periodised Training Programme


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Bodybuildi­ng Associatio­n (SBBA) preparatio­n for the Mr Malaysia Bodybuildi­ng Championsh­ip 2021 has been on-going since last year.

SBBA president Joannes Staneslous there were six back-up athletes currently in the list where they have been undergoing Periodised Training Programme.

The athletes are Bryan Isidore Tubong, Douglas Lee, Mark Onell Villaceran, Grace Voo, Lily Nur Izzaty Ahmad and Fenno Duing.

“The Programme started last year under coaches Joseph Sylvester and Jeffery Thadeus. Normally the preparatio­n under the Programme will take around one-year before a tournament.

“We hoped through the Programme, our bodybuildi­ng squad will be in their best condition in the run up to the Mr Malaysia championsh­ip,” Joannes said here yesterday.

Periodised training is the process of dividing an annual training programme into specific time blocks, where each blocks has specific goal.

It is designed for athletes to maximise performanc­e to coincide with important competitio­n.

“Training is divided into several main phases where each one has its specific aim that in turn would contribute to the main objective of the training programme.

“Our target in the Programme is the Mr Malaysia 2021 championsh­ip that Kedah will host in November,” added Joannes.
