Today’s podcast episode is sponsored by Dr. Stephen Cabral. He was on a recent podcast episode and I’ve learned so much from him over the past couple of years. I was thrilled when he offered to partner for the podcast! If you head to this page, he’s offering a free HTMA mineral and metals test + 30 minute health consult. All of you have to do is pay for shipping! I can’t wait to receive my results.

Today I’m going to talk about progressive overload and how you can use this in your routine to life heavier weights over time. This should be especially helpful to my friends out there who consistently strength train but but always use the same weight, set, and rep amounts.

I'm sharing the definition of progressive overload, my favorite methods to lift heavier weights and get stronger, and how to use this same strategy for running.
