THE FLEXIBLE PERIODIZATION METHOD
FPM one of the most comprehensive strength conditioning course adressing the three core challenges when working with athletes and fitness clients
- How to increase the rate of progress in strength, speed, power or endurance to experience new personal records and improvements in body composition.
- How to minimize overuse injuries (from sport specific practice).
- How to maximize transfer from strength and conditioning/fitness training to improvements in sport performance and other movement based activities.
7 ways the Flexible Periodization Method is different:
- The FPM can be used in parts or as a whole with or without written training programs. As such, it is a complete fit for your style of working.
- With the FPM, the loading patterns of any other periodization system can be created. Thus, the FPM is the only system of periodization that is applicable for athletes and fitness clients of ANY training age, with ANY goal and ANY training and competitive schedule.
- The FPM helps you avoid a “GREAT program with the WRONG goals by guiding you to identify the athlete’s/client’s “weak link” across spiritual, mental, emotional and physical factors.
- The FPM is the most practical and COMPLETE system of periodization that exists today by providing guidance on periodization of ALL aspects of the training program and ALL program variables.
- The FPM is the only system of periodization that integrates the mental and emotional aspects with the physical aspects of training through determining assessments, specific cueing, trainer focus, structure of progressive overload and evaluation of training diaries.
- The FPM is the first system of periodization that is directly structured to help you grow as a coach/trainer: With the FPM you (the coach/trainer) are invited (challenged) to learn and grow with every session and every program through specific questioning.
- The FPM increases the value of any other certifications or workshops you have taken by providing a greater understanding of where these specific techniques fit in a long-term plan.

About Karsten Jensen
Strength coaches do not need to be world class athletes in order to work with world class and Olympic athletes – they need to be world class strength coaches.
– Karsten Jensen –
I am not a “natural born athlete,” but it is exactly this lack of inborn skill that has always been my motivation as a strength coach.
I remember my first (attempt to perform a) sit-up. It was during soccer practice and I was about 7 years old. It was a beautiful sunny day out on the soccer field in the little town in Denmark where I grew up. The coach anchored my feet (it was the 70ties!) and I tried to lift myself up, but nothing happened. Some of my other “firsts” include 0 pull ups or chin ups (I did my first pull up in University), 60 pound bench press, 80 pound full squat and 14.28 in the 100m.
