Fitness Myths vs. Facts 

I don’t know about you, but when I work out I never know what I should and shouldn’t do. For all of you who feel the same way here are some fitness myths and fitness facts you should know when working out!

Myth: Gaining weight means you're getting fat.

Truth: When you originally start working it is common for the average person’s weight to stay the same or even increase, however, this does not mean they are gaining fat. It’s more likely that you’re just adding on some extra muscle tissue. You may technically be gaining weight, but you’re also gaining muscles. Trading out those fat pounds for muscle pounds.

Myth: You can target your fat burn. 

Truth: Target training is the idea that if you workout legs you would then be losing weight from your lower abdomen. Working out reduces overall body fat, but you cannot actually control where it comes from.

Myth: Exercise machines are better for working out than free weights.

Truth: Most exercise machines are actually built and designed for the men’s body. This means that it may cause women to use the incorrect form. Along with this risk, machines isolate specific muscles causing you to burn less calories than if you would use free weights.

Myth: The more you sweat the more fat you will burn.

Truth: Sweat is just your body’s way of cooling you down, and has no indication of how much fat you are burning. The more you sweat the more water you are losing, not fat. Remember, if you do a workout that consists of lots of sweating to stay hydrated before, during, and after the workout.

Myth: Stretching before workout prevents injuries, and allows a better workout.

Truth: Stretching has little to no effect when prior to working out. Instead it is actually better to do smaller warm up workouts to get your blood flowing to your muscles. Although stretching before your workout does almost nothing, stretching afterward carries lots of benefits. It can improve performance, flexibility, and can help maintain a good range of motion in your joints.

Myth: Core workouts will get you that six-pack.

Truth: Yes, abdomen workouts will assist you in toning the abdominal muscles, however, one also must maintain a healthy diet in order to lose the belly fat and uncover those toned muscles. Really all workouts are not complete unless assisted with a healthy diet.
