·       Progression - Steadily increase training amount when body has adapted to current training

·       Overload - make body work harder than usual, push beyond training threshold. Overload by increasing:

o   Frequency (Training more often)

o   Intensity (increase reps, weights)

o   Time (training for a longer duration)

·       Reversibly - Fitness level will go down if training stops, takes longer to gain fitness than to lose it

·       Tedium - Varity of training ways to avoid boredom.
