I hope you aware of these and if you want to get fit please read and understand all of these things!
Remember if you want a desired result that you haven’t experienced yet you have to try something different that you haven’t tried yet.
A lot people don’t weight lift because of the following reasons:
- Never seen results
- Don’t understand or not aware of the benefits
I’ve got to warn you, these myths are the furthest thing away from the truth and stops many men and woman form achieving better health and fitness. These rumours going around about strength training are simply not true.
The truth is that strength training is one of the absolute best things you can do for your health and appearance.
If you’ve fallen for these 5 myths then you’re missing out on tremendous potential results.
Muscle Turns Into Fat
Why would anyone want to build muscle if it could turn into fat after a span of disuse? This is the furthest away from the truth.
Muscle tissue is muscle tissue. Fat tissue is fat tissue. One will never become the other.
Strength Training Doesn’t Burn Fat
On the contrary, muscle mass is your number one ally against fat gains.
A kilogram of muscle burns 10-20 calories each day, while you’re just living and breathing. Regular strength training helps you increase your muscle mass as well as preserve existing muscle mass, turning you into a fat burning machine.
Lifting Weights Makes Women Bulk Up
Yes, strength training increases the amount of muscle on your body; so many women take this to mean that their body will become body-builder-esque, which is again so far from the truth as women don’t have enough testosterone to build huge amounts of muscle..
The truth is that the female body simply doesn’t contain high enough levels of testosterone to produce that level of results without a very focused and dedicated effort.
The tighter, toned figure of a recreational female weight lifter is every bit feminine.
Strength Training Is For Young People Only
This again is false that’s a used-up excuse that a lot of people over 50 seem to use an excuse and it has already been shattered by all the people around the world who are in their 50s 60s 70s and 80s who lift weights and are stronger and have less aches in their body then their younger counterparts.
Assuming that your doctor has given you the OK, you have much to gain from a regular weight lifting routine.
Improved balance and coordination, better strength and flexibility, and a decreased risk of osteoporosis are just the beginning.
Use Light Weight and High Reps To Tone
This myth, popularized in the 90’s, that very high repetitions of very light weights would result in a toned physique, has become outdated. These high repetitions will increase your muscular endurance but will not add strength or increase the amount of muscle you are carrying in your body which for women effectively if you don’t build muscle you won’t get the toned figure you desire.
We now know that in order to truly challenge your muscles, heavier weights with lower repetitions are a must. Start with an 8-10 repetition range and push your muscles with each set.
Including strength training as a part of your fitness routine is essential for achieving a fit and toned body.
