Progressive Workout

Progressive overload is the gradual increase of stress placed upon the body during training. The idea is to continuously increase the demands on the body so that you can sculpt muscle, strength, and endurance. It's the trifecta of workouts, in my opinion!

This full body workout can really challenge you and give a new twist to traditional workouts.  No equipment is necessary so you can do this one anywhere.  I'm gonna head outside with Cindy and burn some serious calories with this full body progressive workout.
