Salvere Blog: Progress-ions… The Why

Progression and your fitness program go hand in hand. How often do you think about and utilize the steps to learning a specific exercise? How often do you go to a workout and “just do what the instructor tells you”? How often in your fitness journey do you “get bored” and stop working out?
Anyone experience knee pain, low back “issues” or trouble lifting heavy things? Do you avoid squats “because they hurt my knees”?
Imagine doing the tasks of regular every day life and not noticing you have a back or knees, being able to stand up from sitting and go about what you wanted to do without your body feeling stiff and going on vacation and not avoiding an experience because your body will hurt afterwards.
As a trainer, I frequently see progressions focusing on form get overlooked and the progressions with intensity get over used. Do you recall a time you experienced something like this during a workout? How did you feel doing an exercise that felt uncomfortable (different then a good challenge!)?
So, now why do progressions matter? Progressions help to build a long term plan for movement progress, help work through some of those aches, pains and injuries to restore you to living your life as comfortable as possible and opens up opportunities for you to experience more!
