2020 has been been…thrilling…thus far, but amidst all this chaos, I have received some variation of the following question, and I believe it’s time to review: “How come I’m progressing, even though all signs should point to the opposite?”

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.

Learning your body, becoming fascinated with its intricate workings, and applying it to your own training is when we begin to bridge the gap from “exercise is a dreaded chore, or punishment” to “training for purpose, and enjoyment.”
-The ATP-PC system can be remembered as the “Stored” or “Gain” system
