In this week’s episode of “The Discover Strength Podcast” we continue our multi-part series featuring trainers from all the Discover Strength locations. In this series, which will air over the next few months, we talk about some of the most important things all of our new clients should know. These topics are also a great reminder for clients who’ve trained with Discover Strength for years, and serve as the foundation of the “Why” behind the “How” of what we do.
This week, Tyler Zolczynski, from our St. Louis Park location, and I discuss how and why we track your progression at Discover Strength.
The principle of “Progressive Overload” is foundational in all forms of resistance training and really all exercise. This principle simply states that over the course of your training career you must incrementally increase the intensity of the exercise being performed in order to continue to see improvements. Essentially you can’t lift the same weight for the same reps every time you workout and expect to keep getting stronger. Tyler and I discuss the finer points of what we call “double progression” at Discover Strength to insure that we are always steadily and incrementally working harder every session.
I encourage you to share this episode with friends who may be interested in what your workouts at Discover Strength look like. We know everyone is different and we pride ourselves on meeting every client exactly where they’re at with a customized routine to help them make the most out of their workouts.
Let’s show everyone that you can work harder and smarter just 2x/week for 30 minutes and get the same or even better results with a “Discover Strength Style” approach to your resistance training routine.
