We all have our own unique likes and dislikes, and when it comes to exercising and working out, that becomes especially apparent. Some people, for example, like running on treadmills, whilst others simply can’t stand it. Some enjoy cycling, whilst others prefer swimming.
Even bodybuilders have their own unique preferences for when they’re training because contrary to popular belief, not all bodybuilders have to follow the exact same workouts as Mr Olympia in order to build muscle. Some bodybuilders for example, prefer 5-day splits, whilst others enjoy full-body workouts. Some enjoy push/pull days, whilst others enjoy high intensity training. The message we’re trying to portray here, is that each person is unique and as such, will have their own unique likes and dislikes.
One form of training however, that is proving not only popular, but incredibly effective as well, is progressive overload training and it is this very form of training which we’ll be taking a more in-depth look at right now. Contained within this article you will find out exactly what progressive overload training is, a typical example, and a few ways in which you can actually create progressive overloading on your muscles yourself. So, without any further hesitation, let’s learn more about progressive overload and exactly why it’s considered so effective.
