What is Progressive Loading?

You’ve made the decision to get in shape and improve your health. Congratulations! Now it’s time to choose an exercise routine that will help you achieve your fitness goals. While there are many different approaches to working out, progressive loading is a method that offers several benefits, especially if you’re just starting out. Here’s what you need to know about progressive loading and how it can help you reach your fitness goals.


Progressive Loading

Our number one priority is making sure you have a seamless workout experience, from the moment you walk through our doors until the moment you leave. One of the ways we do this is through progressive loading. Progressive loading is defined as the gradual increase of resistance during an exercise set which results in improved strength and muscle development over time. In other words, it means that we design our workouts so they get progressively harder as you go along, challenging your muscles in new ways and helping you see results faster. By slowly increasing the amount of weight you’re lifting, you give your muscles time to adapt to the increased load, which reduces your risk of injury.


Benefits of Progressive Loading

There are several benefits associated with progressive loading, including:


  1. Reduced Risk of Injury: As we mentioned above, one of the biggest benefits of progressive loading is that it reduces your risk of injury. By gradually increasing the amount of weight you’re lifting, you allow your muscles and connective tissues time to adjust to the new load. This decreases your risk of overexerting yourself and sustaining an injury.
  2. Improved Strength Gains: Another benefit of progressive loading is that it can lead to improved strength gains. When you consistently lift the same amount of weight week after week, your muscles quickly adapt to the load, and you stop making progress. However, when you gradually increase the amount of weight you’re lifting, your muscles are constantly being challenged, which leads to continued strength gains.
  3. Increased motivation: Finally, many people find that progressive loading helps them stay motivated because they can see themselves making progress week after week. There’s nothing more frustrating than feeling like you’re stuck in a workout rut because you’re not seeing any results. With progressive loading, however, you can see yourself getting stronger, which helps keep you motivated to stick with your routine.

In addition to progressive loading, we also take a personalized approach to fitness.
