Many know Mike Zourdos for his work with Daily Undulating Periodisation (DUP).

But it’s important you know he has a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology, is an Assistant Professor in Exercise Science at Florida Atlantic University and Mike’s research focus on optimizing periodization and program design methods (including DUP).

However, last but not least he is a Powerlifter, a Powerlifting coach & a true family man.

Plus a bit of a joker.

This week we delve into what exactly is DUP, common misconceptions & how you can apply DUP programming as a Bodybuilder and Powerlifter and the differences between those two set ups.
