Today’s podcast serves to educate you on a crucial law of training: progressive overload. I explain what it is, why it’s absolutely needed, and all of the methods we can employ to achieve it.
Progressive overload is the difference between doing the work, and getting no results, to doing slightly more work over time for results, gains, and progress.
Luckily, there are numerous ways to go about this, and I break down the most common ways, the most overlooked, and my own personal favorite methods.
I go into the 2 simplest and overlooked progressive overload methods, intensity based methods, volume based methods, and density based methods.
I know this episode will be impactful; it’s important to keep things fun, but also progressing.
