In this paper, we study the existence of periodic solutions for classical Hamiltonian systems without the Palais-Smale condition. We prove that the information of the potential function contained in a finite domain is sufficient for the existence of periodic solutions. Moreover, we establish the existence of infinitely many periodic solutions without any symmetric condition on the potential function V.
