Why do so many people swear by this methodology? I give tremendous respect to the creator Vitor Frade, but the methodology is flawed in my view. Tactical Periodization is supposed to be based on chaos theory and ecological dynamics but instead, the training methods break the game into many separate pieces, losing most aspects of representative game design and realism. The spacing in most of the exercises are off, the positioning of players and movements lack realism, and the true unpredictability of the game is taken away. This video provides insight into my thoughts on tactical periodization and how I adjust my training sessions to be more game representative and more whole, compared to isolated and separated exercises.
