Modify & Progress

Modify and progress your training!


Slightly change exercises to meet needs such as an injury, discomfort, or personal preference.

– Increase rest, rate.

– Decrease repetitions, resistance, range.


Use different exercises to ones planned but still achieve a similar effect. This is often done when equipment is unavailable, broken or in use.


Make exercises harder to challenge yourself as you become more advanced in training.

– Increase repetitions, resistance.

– Decrease rest, rate.


Rest: Rest periods between workout sessions.

Rate: The speed at which you perform the exercise.

Repetitions: Amount of times an exercise is performed.

Range: Range of motion.

Resistance: Weight used.
