    Overload When an athlete performs a mobility exercise, he/she should stretch to the end of his/her range of movement. In active mobility, the end of the range of movement is known as the active end position. Improvements in mobility can only be achieved by working at or beyond the active end position. Passive exercises involve passing the active end position, as the external force is able to move the limbs further than the active contracting of the agonist muscles Kinetic mobility (dynamic) exercises use the momentum of the movement to bounce past the active end position A muscle will only strengthen when forced to operate beyond its customary intensity. The load must be progressively increased in order to further adaptive responses as training develops, and the training stimulus is gradually raised. Overload can be progressed by: increasing the resistance e.g. adding 5kg to the barbell increasing the number of repetitions with a particular weight increasing the number of sets of the exercise (work) increasing the intensity- more work in the same time, i.e. reducing the recovery periods

    Overload In order to achieve continual improvement over time, overload must be incorporated into a training program so that the body is forced to adapt to the new workload. This means increasing the following: sets, repetitions, weight, time, distance, etc. View the video on overload.
