Wave and linear model periodization on body composition and muscular strength in women. Brazilian Journal of Biomotricity. v. 7, n. 4, p. 156-164, 2013. Increasingly training models evolve in the pursuit of better outcomes for the sport and the pursuit of health. The manuscript aimed to analyze the effect of periodized training, linear and wave, body composition and muscle strength in women. The sample consisted of five adult women, who trained for two menstrual cycles in each timeline. The wave periodization was conducted according to three phases of the menstrual cycle, or the menstrual phase, the post-menstrual syndrome and premenstrual phase. Assessments were made of body weight, height, body mass index, circumferences, skinfold thickness and arm muscle area before and after each periodization. On the other hand, the maximum force was evaluated pre-and post-periodization and was also evaluated at the end of each first mesocycle. Data analysis was made using statistical inference, adopting a significance level of P <0.05. The most significant results were restricted to muscle strength, where the maximum force in linear periodization was lower pre-training in relation to the first mesocycle exercises leg press and leg curl 45 (p = 0.0432, p = 0.0341, respectively). At pull down and bench press exercises the pre-training results were lower compared to the 2nd mesocycle (p = 0.0109, p = 0.0023, respectively). In periodization wave results were also lower pre-training in relation to the first mesocycle in exercises leg press 45, pull down, leg extension and bench press (p = 0.0048, p = 0.0240, p = 0.0232, p = 0.0434, respectively) . We concluded, as the method adopted, that the wave and linear periodization strength gains demonstrated similarly.
