People love using overload methods.
So much that they overuse it.
What’s the catch?
Maybe because it gets them results?
But not the results that they want.
Most of the time, they get stuck.
Or worse, they regress.
But despite that, people still use the same overused overload techniques.
Because they think that feeling challenged,
and burned, and sweaty,
and out of breath is equal to training hard.
And that’s actually not the case.
Because what happens when you push your muscles beyond its level of fatigue?
Diminishing results set in.
You only feel exhausted.
Your muscles’ ability to recover reduces.
Your performance drops.
And the only thing that increases?
Is the stress that causes more muscle fatigue and damage than muscle growth.
So what method should you use then?
Should you stop using overload?
Is it a bad technique?
That’s not the issue really.
You actually need more simple programs,
where your load and intensity increase over the program.
Even for our girls at SMP,
They get way better results from doing the beginner program
with high compliance and precision.
So if you want to level up your training, the best thing to do first is:
Nail the basics of progressive overload.
And follow the program prescription precisely.
