If you think you know everything about fitness, you should think twice because there are many myths that people believe are true but you may not know about it. Being unknown with your fitness tasks can interfere on your fitness goals and may also result poor. The most common myth is that fasting is bad for you. Infact it helps in increasing fat oxidation. There is also a myth that the more you sweat the more fat you burn. Sweat is good but there is no relation between it and fat. Sweating simply occurs because of our body’s internal temperature and our body regulates the temperature by excreting out water. Remember you have a goal and you need to be motivated to follow it every day. Motivation comes and goes. At one point you will feel very energetic but at another point you will feel sleepy and lazy so keep motivating yourself to achieve your goal.
Another myth is that you need to cut carbs to lose fat. Some people believe that cutting carbs is the best way and the only solution to lose fat but that’s a very wrong concept. Also you must have heard about the term cardio for sure. Many people believe that cardio can help to lose weight. The truth is you could lose weight without doing any cardio at all as weight loss is a result of the manipulation of your daily calories to put yourself into a caloric deficit. You may believe the fact that stretching before lifting is good for your muscles but researches show that stretching before you lift weights negatively impacts performance in the weights room. It causes a significant reduction in strength. Researchers have also found that stretching the lower body before working out decreases strength and stability in the lower body during exercise. So avoid these myths for a better result.
