Title: Most Common Fitness Myths

Most Common Fitness Myths

1
Stretching is essential for preventing injury
Stretching doesn't enhance your range of motion.
Some studies suggest that stretching destabilize
muscles making it difficult to participate in a
strenuous exercise like weight-lifting. Instead
of stretching it would be better to participate
in a exercise which gets your blood pumping.

Vegetarian diets are more nutritious than meat
items
Eating veggies are considered healthy. But meat
being rich in iron helps in energising the body
and fighting infection. Some vegetarian products
like lentils, beans, fortified cereals and tofu
are rich in iron. But taking eggs, dairy
products, etc. is a must for those participating
in the exercise.

Lifting weights will make you bulky in appearance
Testosterone is essential for increasing muscle
size. Men possess twenty to thirty times more
testosterone than women. So they can bulk up much
easily than women. So for really bulking up, you
need to do a lot of weight lifting.

More calories are burnt in cardio than weight
training
Studies have concluded that more calories are
burned during cardio workouts. But in case of
strength training, calories burn for longer
durations after workout. This is termed as excess
post-exercise oxygen consumption.

Crunches and ab workouts will remove belly fat
Crunches and ab workouts are not successful in
cases where there is excessive fat in the body.
So first step should be to reduce the extra fat
by doing cardio.
