How Does Progressive Training Work?

Progressive Bodyweight Training is just the name given to how your training develops as you get stronger. In order to keep developing your training must change.

In the last 2 podcasts we have covered the beginners triset (level 1) and the foundation triset (level 2).

As you get stronger and more competent at Level 1, you unlock 2 new things:

1 - The Progression Exercises for Level 2, this is the next stage.

2 - The Level 1 Exercise Variations, these are different versions of level 1 exercises, more complex and difficult.

Take Pull Exercises For Example

Level 1 - Rows

This unlocks Row Variations and Pull Up Progressions

Row Variations

Include Wide Grip and Archer Rows

Pull Up Progressions

Include Negative Pulls, Assisted Pulls, Resistance Bands.

How This Fits In Your Workout

Instead of doing Rows all of the time, you can start progressing up to Pull Ups.

But you can't only do Pull Up Progressions because that would neglect most of your body.

So You Start with your Pull and Dip Progressions, then you do your Beginner Triset but with variations:

Beginner Triset (Archer Variations)

Archer Rows

Archer Push Ups

Supported Tuck Raises
