3 common Fitness Myths: People assume it is True, but here is the Reality for you

If you're trying to drop 10-15 percent body fat or add 10-15 percent of lean muscle mass, it 's important to get to grips with some of the fitness industry's biggest lies/myths first. Otherwise, you may end up wasting your precious time and could even harm your health in the long run.

The myth/belief that muscle turns into fat is completely false, for example.

Myth 1:

Muscle never grows to become fat.

They are two absolutely, different tissue styles. Much like your heart is different from your liver and you wouldn't think it will turn into your liver, so your muscle won't be able to transform into fat. It would be like looking right in front of your eyes at an apple turn to orange. This just won't happen.

So, what happens to someone who once was very strong and fit but starts working out? If the muscle does not turn into fat as many believe, then why does it's once fit and trim body appear fat, flabby and unhealthy now? The truth is much worse than turning to fat. The muscle isn't transformed to fat, it's lost. This is running away, literally.

Since the body requires a lot of energy to retain lean muscle mass (which is why having more muscle is perfect to avoid fat gain), it loses it when the body feels it no longer needs to hold muscle mass. Whatever muscle mass isn't stressed (used), catabolization (breaking down) begins. No-use muscles shrink and fat pockets grow larger. Soon, what used to be an attractive, lean, fit body is now flabby and overweight. It is so easy, really.

As the body consumes more calorie intake than fat, diet changes will occur if the exercising behaviors change or slow down. When diets are not changed to comply with a less active lifestyle when food consumption stays the same but overall spending on calories is the, what do you guess? The remaining calorie surplus (which is no longer consumed by activity) is converted into body fat. It's pretty simple science-you burn fewer calories when you exercise less, and then you've got to eat less.

The great news is that it only takes about 60 minutes of weekly weight training in the gym (or your favorite strength workout) to retain muscle once it is developed. When it's built, it requires much less energy to sustain muscle than it did to first develop it.

Myth 2:

Exercising every day is perfect. Incorrect.

Many people feel that if they struggle to make the change they want, it's because they don't exercise hard enough (or long enough) to force their bodies harder instantly, which is the exact opposite of what would happen. You cause micro damage to the muscle tissue every time you exercise the muscles hard (at the gym or elsewhere), and it takes time for that to be repaired to withstand the same amount of force once again. When it doesn't have the time and energy required to do so, muscles won't get stronger and can in turn cause loss of valuable muscle mass.

Truth-The body wants and needs days of rest in a well-planned regimen while regularly working out, to have the energy required to get stronger than before. Ideally, it should be given one day off a week, if not two. No, it's not hard science either. Some people need more. In reality, three to four days of rest is not at all unusual for inexperienced trainees or those who do intense workouts. Note, as your exercise intensity rises, so does your overall rest required to recover from the exercise.

Recognizing when it is time to work harder, and when it is time to rest, is very important. Comprehending the difference and giving your body exactly what it needs is what will get you to that end goal.

Respect your workout, but get it into balance with rest.

Myth 3:

Cardio is a great way to make your body thinner— False.

Cardio-( referring to steady-state cardio sessions)-the exercises people fear after hitting the gym, which they do regularly. Jumping on a piece of cardio equipment and going 20-60 minutes at a single pace. Such preparation sessions do very little for anyone. What these prolonged aerobic exercises do is to increase the appetite, which helps us eat more. Indeed, many people, who are classic "cardio bunnies," are reporting ravenous appetites that will just not go away.

Even aerobic training can lead to loss of lean muscle mass. If the body is aware that it has to go at a moderate intensity speed for long periods of time, it does what it can to be more effective. Since muscle tissue is energy-intensive to maintain, if you have less it is healthier for your body. Couple this with the fact that while doing cardio many are on a lower calorie diet and now you have a body ready and willing to drop lean muscle. And in the end, fat isn't really lost, but instead, lean muscle.

After months of cardio training, the body may look smaller due to lost weight, but it is due, sadly, to an unhealthy, shift in body structure. In proportion to lean muscle mass, the body now contains more fat mass and the result is not good. The look is soft, jiggly, and just fit.

If you're looking for a healthy, lean, strong body, aerobic training isn't the way to get to that. Force training is the only thing that is motivated to reverse unhealthy, muscle loss.
