Progressive Load Leg Day Strength Training Workout for Women
If you find yourself in a rut or hitting a plateau, your body may need a more challenge and varied workout. We love to use progressive loads to switch it up and challenge our muscles to get stronger!
What is progressive loading?
Progressive load training is gradually increasing the weight, frequency, or number of reps in your strength training routine.
For this workout, we'll be increasing our weight while decreasing our reps to bring our muscles to fatigue while increasing the strength capacity.
