Heavier Weights vs Heavier Cupcakes

How long have you been coming to bootcamp? Are you still using 5lb weights at class? In the world of fitness, there is something called ‘ The principle of progressive overload’ which means: ‘In order for a muscle to grow, strength to be gained, performance to increase, or for any similar improvement to occur, the human body must be forced to adapt to a tension that is above and beyond what it has previously experienced’.  What does that mean for you?  It means that the human body adapts to whatever we are doing. So try increasing your weights a bit so you can get better results. If you are in a class that doesn’t use weights, try doing pushups or planks on your toes rather than your knees. It is only by pushing ourselves out of the comfort zone that we get the results we want. (This does NOT include the ‘physio corner’ people who have pre-existing injuries!) A special note for the ladies: Heavier weights do NOT make you bulky, only heavier cupcakes can do that!! See you at bootcamp everyone!
