Among the best ways to build muscle and strength is a principle I like to call “The Dawn of Fitness.” Progressive Overload Training dates back a millennium, where Milo of Croton became famous for developing a concept we known today as Milo’s Progressive Overload Training Principle.
You need to push your body and it’s muscles as far and as often as possible. – D’Vaughn Bell
What is Progressive Overload Training?
Basically, in order for you to become stronger and for your muscles to grow you must apply more “pressure”. Pressure can be the amount of weight, number of sets, reps, how long you hold each rep, how long of a break you take between reps, sets or even workouts.
Progressive overload training is similar to over-training but without the side-effects of injuries.
