The Skinny on Progressive Overload

In the world of fitness, one principle reigns supreme.

That principle is progressive overload.

It is a simple idea: to get stronger and build muscle mass, you must progressively increase the demands on your body over time. You can achieve progressive overload by gradually increasing the weight, reps, or sets for a specific muscle group over time until you achieve your fitness goals.

The concept of progressive overload has been used by many bodybuilders who know that no matter how much they work out, without this basic principle, they will not achieve their goals.
