‘Tis the season of goal setting, dusting off the treadmill or jumping into an icy cold car and heading to the gym. Before you begin, here are some of the most common myths associated with health and fitness that we thought we would share with you:
Myth: The longer you exercise, the better your results.
Fact: Optimize your workouts by doing interval training or short burst of exercise.
Myth: No pain means no gain.
Fact: Most pain associated with exercise is normal. Pain is not normal if it is sharp, shooting or stabbing and lasts longer than two days.
Myth: Ab machines make your stomach smaller.
Fact: Ab machines tone and tighten your stomach. Only fat burning exercises will make your stomach smaller.
Myth: Exercising on an empty stomach helps weight loss.
Fact: Your ratio of protein to carbs to fat should be 40% to 55% to 5% two hours after a workout.
