As you start working out and build consistency, your body adapts by getting stronger and more fit. Soon, the exercises you did or the weights you used before, become too easy.
If you just continue with the same exercises and weights you used before, your results will stagnate. This is because your body doesn't have any reason to get more fit and strong if you are doing the same exercise in the same manner over and over again.
In order to continue progressing, we need to understand and incorporate something called the principle of progressive overload.
