Promised yourself a sport from the new year? Sport is always a good idea! As you plan your workouts, look at 10 myths about exercise from the Mayo Clinic.
It is true that you need to include 20-30 minutes of cardio in your program. However, to achieve the desired, you should also include strength exercises. They build muscle and maximize the cardio effect.
Some people are concerned that adding strength training will lead to weight gain. It is not true. Moderate strength training allows you to maximize the efficiency of burning calories.
Food is fuel for the body, and proper nutrition guarantees results. If you want to lose weight, your calorie intake should be higher than your calorie intake.
There is no proven study that stretching prevents injuries because it prepares the muscles for exercise. It completely depends on the characteristics of the body and movements. Do dynamic stretches, such as lunges and leg swings, to help your muscles work out.
Libra is not the best way to control changes in the body. Weight is affected by many factors, including how much water you drank, what you ate, and when you weighed. It is better to record the measurements of the arms, waist and hips. And if you do use scales, weigh yourself at the same time every day.
Some pay attention to the calories burned on the treadmills. This figure is not 100% accurate. Many factors determine how many calories your body burns: including gender, age and current weight.
Press exercises - useful for muscle development, improving balance. However, if you want to get "cubes", you will have to dramatically reduce body fat. Consult a professional beforehand.
Additives and protein shakes are not required. You can get the same nutrients with natural foods (such as turkey, peanut butter).
Sweating is an inaccurate way to measure training performance. Many factors affect the amount of sweating, such as temperature, humidity, and hydration levels.
Feeling uncomfortable during training is normal, feeling pain is not. Pain is the way your body tells you that something is wrong. If you feel pain during training, stop so as not to hurt yourself.
