How to increase your training load

Increasing the load The principle of continuity in sports training is directly related to the principle of a gradual increase in training loads. At the same time, the increase in loads is not understood one-sidedly, in the sense of only physical exertion, but also includes increased requirements for technical, tactical and moral-volitional training. In the practical implementation of this principle, it is important that the loads constantly increase, since if the load is the same, work becomes habitual and only recovery processes take place in the body. With a constant increase in physical activity, in addition to recovery processes, there will be processes to increase health. In sports, this means improving athletic performance. It should be borne in mind that changes in the human body do not occur quickly and abruptly, but gradually, so you need to increase the requirements in accordance with the capabilities of those involved.

Against the background of a gradual increase in requirements, periodically maximum tasks for this athlete should be applied for difficulty. For example, working to increase the jumping stamina of a volleyball player and gradually increasing the number of jumping exercises, special increased standards or extended training games are introduced with the task of using more techniques in the jump. The most difficult tasks are given subject to careful medical supervision.
