What is the relationship between the principles of overload specificity and progression?
The principle of progression states that you should increase overload, which can be achieved by using FITT (frequency, intensity, time, and type) when your body adapts to its present routine. The specificity principle states that only targeted exercises will improve specific fitness goals.
