PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD

Updated: Dec 10, 2020

‘Gradually making your muscles work harder over time’


To stimulate muscle growth (aka build muscle) you must challenge your body. How?


- Increase sets/reps

More sets and/or reps of the same weight


- Increase weight

Heavier weight for the same amount of sets/reps


- Increase ROM (Range of Motion)

Combining different ranges can optimise muscle growth


- Increase time under high tension

Exerting yourself during sets and resting for adequate time


Remember... Gaining muscle is NOT a linear process and you will experience plateaus. However, if you are new to weight training it is likely you will see results quickly.
