One strength training principle you definitely want to be familiar with is progressive overload. Your body and muscles are smart. If you do the same workout over and over again—same weight, same reps, same rest periods—eventually your body will adapt and stop progressing. Instead of seeing your progress stall, progressive overload helps you challenge yourself and continue improving. Ways to implement progressive overload include increasing your weight, volume, training frequency, time under tension, or decreasing your rest time in between sets during your workout.
