6 Fitness Myths that Need to DIE!

6 Fitness Myths That Need To Die!

  1. Cardio is how you get lean

You should be in a caloric deficit to be lean. Use cardio as a tool. It isn’t necessary for fat loss and should never replace weight lifting. 

  1. Carbs make you fat

Carbs are a macronutrient that help with performance. They taste good. And unless you eat them like an asshole you’re probably going to be fine getting a substantial amount of calories from carbohydrates. 

  1. You should buy supplements for your gender (I.E. “women’s pre workout”)

Supplements don’t know your gender. Buying things labeled with a woman or for a woman is more than likely a marketing ploy to get you to spend more on LESS active ingredients. 

  1. Lifting heavy weights make you “big and bulky”

Lifting heavy weights makes you strong. You will be able to grow muscle at a variety of rep ranges and intensity. The quality of that muscles appearance, be it “toned” or “bulky” has more to do with your body fat than anything. 

  1. Light weights are better for “toning”

Lifting light weights can help you grow the muscle you want and achieve the toned physique you like – but no more than moderate loads can.

  1. Waist Trainers Are “SAFE”

Waist Trainers create a degree of core atrophy and local sweating. They can create a momentary appearance of a trim waist through water loss, but they don’t shrink the waist, they create muscle atrophy. Not worth it for performance and long term health.
