WORKOUT INFO FOR THE DAY!
Weight loss Myths
Effective weight loss is the total amount of calories burned during the day, not how or why they were burned. It doesn't matter if it is night or morning, so exercise early in the day has no advantage to exercise later in the day.
• More Exercise is Better
• If you’re not sweating, you’re not working hard enough
Sweating is the body's way of cooling itself down. Many factors contribute to body temperature, including room temperature, types of exercise done, body-fat levels, clothing, and exercise intensity. The intensity for exercise can't be judged by the amount you sweat. A well-trained person will often sweat a lot because their body can more efficiently regulate heat. You can still have a great, effective and intense workout without getting your shirt drenched
• X is the best form of exercise
I always have this one question from many of my clients: “What is the best machine I should do if I only have 30 minutes?” My answer goes like this “No one machine is better than the other. I would recommend choosing different machines on different days. Your body is great at adapting to whatever you impose on it, so by choosing different machines that focus on different mucle groups, your are constantly confusing your body, making your workouts more effective” If you hate running, there are many ways to get in shape without hitting a treadmill. Even when claims are based on factual information about “X” being the best form of exercise, they have little practical value to the average exerciser. The most important thing is to choose activities or exercise machines that you like, and perform them properly and consistently.
• Gaining weight is just a part of getting older
Getting older is not an excuse for gaining weight. As we age and begin a more sedentary lifestyle we start to naturally lose muscle mass. The efficiency of your metabolism is directly linked to how much muscle you have on your body. The most efficient way of maintaining your body's muscle mass and keeping your metabolism from dropping, is by doing a high intensity strength training workout once a week HOWEVER, exercise in general will keep your metabolism spiked!
