Progressive Overload- What Does It Mean?
What is Progressive Overload?
Progressive Overload is the gradual increase in training stress to elicit a targeted physiological adaptation.
Why is it important?
This ensures you are continuously adapting and improving. Resulting in muscle strength and gain!
How is it done?
1. Increased intensity- increasing the load of the exercise. 2. Increased volume- increasing the sets or reps. 3. Increased frequency- increasing the amount of times per week the exercise is visited. 4. Increased tension- increasing time under tension.
