Use progressive overload to your advantage with this kit of 8 count, 0.5 pound fractional plates that fit any 2in Olympic barbells. By continuously increasing the demand placed on the body during training, progressively overloading your muscles, they will adapt by growing bigger and stronger so that you can handle this type of intense stimulus if and when it occurs again.
Increase weight by 1 lb on any exercise and build more muscle and strength faster. Simply, by pushing and stressing the muscle to move more weight every workout, the body will do what it must to meet the demands placed on it. The muscle fibres will have no choice but to grow in size and strength.
Progressive overload should be used at all levels of conditioning. Beginners need it to progress faster and avoid injury, intermediate lifters need it to stay motivated and keep pushing forward and experts need it to break through plateaus to achieve greater success.
By setting yourself a new challenge every workout, you are also setting yourself up for greater intensity and motivation to push yourself further than your last training session.
