I’ve been working on my body for over a year now and I’m starting to level out. I’m going to try and start progressive overloading and more calisthenics challenges!
Here’s my questions:
Can I progressive overload only certain muscle groups? Aka lower body and not upper body or will that create a huge strain/imbalance? To clarify I will still be training my upper body but I just don’t want to get to yolked in that area lol.
How long should I go at a certain weight until I add more? Is it every time I do that overload or should I do it for a week and than add more weight the next week??
How much weight should I add at a given time? I’ve read 2.5lbs, 5lbs, or that you should only add more weight if you can do 3×5 sets? Which of these seems more correct?
How many grams of protein should I eat a day during overloading? Should I eat less on days I don’t overload and eat more on days I do?
Thanks in advance!
