Default Progressive Overload with Basics

Whether its powerlifting, o-lifts, or running, most programs have a formula to progressively overload the muscles. I was wondering what the thoughts and opinions are on using basics progressions such as the planche, Front and back levers, handstands, l-sit , and manipulating their training volume times.

For example Coach Sommers suggest that one trains the basic movements for 60 seconds of total work. But would starting with 30 seconds one week, and adding 5-10 seconds every 2 weeks be a effective way of training the movements?

Just a thought, wanted to see what you guys thought.
