On Progressive Overload

When you're thinking about your progress in the gym, it doesn't always have to be more weight. There are other ways to track your progress. Instead of adding weight all of the time, you can do more sets or more reps. Another good way to track your progress is doing the same reps and weights but with better technique or in less time. For me, this meant going from 5 sets to 8 sets of 10 today on my KB Swings. Next week, it'll be 10 sets of 10. Maybe your setup is better, or the lift feels smoother or easier - that's still progress.

As the saying goes, more is not always better - better is better. This is where having a plan for your training comes into play. Make sure you're doing the things that will help you work towards your goals so you can get the results you want.
