There are six mesocycles (X1 to X6) which make up one macrocycle, each with their own emphases (aerobic base, increasing intensity, consolidation, fine-tuning, tapering). The order in which these mesocycles are to be completed starts from the bottom (X1) and goes to the top (X6).
Within each mesocycle (aka 'tier' or 'level') there are seven domains (aka 'rooms') representing broad categories that classify different training assignments. These domains include aerobic conditioning, anaerobic conditioning, aerobic capacity training, anaerobic capacity training, general mobility, circuits and weights, and health maintenance.
The relative proportion of each domain (aka the size of each room) varies depending on the floor. For example, the 'aerobic conditioning' room is largest on floor X1, whereby the emphasis is on establishing an aerobic base.
