A new year, a new start, new goals, a new routine and a lot of new goals with a lot of promises to keep. Starting a gym and a new exercise routine to help you reach your weight loss and fitness goals could do the trick for you. Along the way, whether it is a gym or fitness trainer or anything, you’ll hear a lot of advice about exercise—not all of which is true.
There are several common myths people might tell you. Here are few fitness myths and the truths that debunk them:
- The most common one is people telling you if you are heavy, you are just fat which is not really true. When you start lifting weights, you will gain fat. After a few weeks, you will notice a change in your weight. But you do not have to worry about it, but eventually, the fat melts down. The newly built muscles will make you look sharper and leaner.
- Sweat has nothing to do with the intensity, it’s our body’s way of getting rid of heat. Fat is oxidized in our body and it is not going to vaporize because of sweating.
- Exercise can be painful, but it does not have to be crushed. No Pain, No Gain is true, you should sweat, breathe hard and fast. But it should not make you uncomfortable and look fatigued the whole day.
- People usually believe that to get a ripped body you must take a weight loss diet along with cardio. But the truth is if one is taking proper cardio sessions, the body will respond more to proper nutritious health food.
Sticking to the truths of these myths will keep you healthy and on track to meeting your fitness goals. Be unique like your fingerprints, don’t go with the cliche but the actual fitness truths. Give your body what it actually deserves.
