Progressive Overload

Yes, the term ‘Progressive Overload’ is a fundamental principle in any form of physical training, but can it relate to life? For those unfamiliar with the term, progressive overload is the placing of higher than normal demands on the human body over a specific period. The rationale is that the body has adapted to a particular stimulus, and needs a new ‘challenge’ to progress. Can this relate to life too?

Now you may be thinking, ‘What is he on about!’, but hear me out. The basic principle of progressive overload is about being better, no matter what we are talking about. So should we try to implement this in our lives? So the idea is no matter what task, strive to be 1% better every day. Now the question is are you ready to implement progressive overload in your life?

Food for thought.
