Emphasis on progressive overload

4 posts in this topic

I cant tell you how important it is for NATURAL lifters to put emphasis on progressive overload when training for size. For natural lifters, muscle size and strength have a direct correlation, that is why you never see a extremely jacked guy only benching 135lb. If you bench 135lb 3x12 for 3 years i can guarantee you that your chest will not get bigger because not form of pregressive overload is taken place . The more weight that is on the barbell the more muscle you will have overtime (that is if you have the appropriate amount of volume). For natural lifter, frequency is king to making gains thats why fullbody and lower/upper rotuines is most superior

This is good to know. I bench press with resistance bands and not with weights. Do you think that method works for resistance bands as well?

I would say I have been a victim of constantly going to the gym and seeing no difference. Now I see what I could have been doing wrong. By progressive overload, do you mean increasing the weights gradually?

Maybe that is why I haven't seen any difference in my workouts either except for being more hungry all the time. I should try increasing the weights when I work out.
