The Truth Behind The Big Fitness Myths

Are you pushing and pushing but not achieving the desired results? Do you feel like your workout is working for everyone else but yourself?

Well, let me tell you, you are not alone. Countless individuals are constantly frustrated by programs that cost way too much and offer little to no results.

The complaint is as common as the myths that surround the health and fitness industry.

A major misconception I’d like to address right here and now is the belief that sit-ups melt away belly fat. I’m sorry to say, guys, spot reduction is a myth. In order to reduce unwanted kilos around the waist, you have to burn the fat from your body as a whole.

The next big myth that should be cleared up is the idea that the faster you perform an exercise the better regardless of form. Sacrificing form for speed is nothing but an invitation for injury.

Then there are the people that believe the polar opposite, stating that long, slow cardio sessions are the best way to lose weight. This myth has led to many individuals wasting both their time and effort.

The truth of the matter is that short, intense workouts that incorporate resistance with cardio will burn fat much quicker than a long, steady cardio session.

Allow me to introduce you to a little technique called HIIT, also known as High-Intensity Interval Training. HIIT is a cardiovascular exercise strategy that alternates short periods of intense exercise with less intense recovery periods. The workouts increase your power, muscle tone, speed, strength and endurance. Oh and best of all it allows you to burn more calories.

So, to save time, effort and potentially money, step back from your 60 minutes of treadmill a day and get involved with a HIIT session. Half the time, double the result.
Hopefully, you can take these tips to transform your workout and be on the way to a healthier, happier you!
