Why we train the way we train:
Twenty-five hundred years ago in a Greek colony, a wrestler by the name of Milo carried a bull on his shoulders day after day. He began when it was a calf, and as it grew so did Milo’s strength. Though he probably didn’t know it at the time, this was the birth of progressive overload and the foundation of exercise selection and programming.
Putting it into practice:
If it hurts don’t do it
If a physical therapist, doctor, or chiropractor says don’t do it… don’t do it
Incremental and personal
Small increase in intensity over a period of time (progressive overload)
Specific assistance exercises for weaknesses
Workouts throughout the week should be as complete as possible
Cover all major muscle groups
Must specifically combat sickness and aging
Multi-joint movements that mimic activities of daily living
Should be as efficient and simple as possible
Simplicity that will promote program adherence and participant competence.
