Step Ups for Height vs Progressive Overload

Can anyone clarify the difference between step ups for height vs step ups for progressive overload and which should be prioritized for increase in athleticism

Haven it’s one smooth scale:

How much weight?

How much height?

There’s no wrong answer!

That being said, I think somewhere in the middle will be most effective. Moderate to high reps. Master athletic amount of height (9-12 inches?). Then load. That’s my guess for best results.

You could go super low and super heavy, but I don’t know if that’s actually going to give best results. And you could try to max out 1rm height, but I also don’t know if that will give best results.
