How to Progress your Lifts for Dummies

Progress doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as adding 5lbs to the bar each week. Even if I squat 315lbs for X amount of repetitions the previous week, all I would have to do is put these 2.5lb plates on both sides and get the same amount of reps to progress.

If I did that every single week it would compound, and in a month I would be squatting 10lbs more than I did previously for the same amount of reps. In 4 months, I basically have added a whole plate (45lbs) to each side of the bar.

*This is a little bit of a simplification. The more advanced you get, the less realistic this is. But for most people who are following this channel, you simply need to start pushing yourself more week over week.
