The most important principle in strength training is progressive overload, i.e. to continuously lift more than you have before. In one way or the other.

But does it matter if you progress by increasing the weight you lift or the number or reps you do? 

In episode 5 of The Strength Log, we're discussing a new study that examined this, and give our opinions on how you should progress your training to become bigger and stronger.


Want to learn more about the study we discuss in this episode? Daniel wrote an article about it, that you can read here.
