Fitness Myths, Working Out Properly (Part 1) :

a shorter period of time. How many of these common misconceptions have you believed to be true?

Fitness Myth 1: "Aerobics is better than weight lifting to get in shape."

You hear this one a fair amount but the reality is, if you want muscle definition and a better "after burn", you need to lift weights. You can burn calories just as effectively with weights if you work in super sets to help keep your heart-rate up. The more effective result is the fact that weight training will create an "after burn" effect. This is when your body continues to have an elevated metabolism for several hours after your workout which is difficult to duplicate with cardio.


Fitness myth 2: "When women lift weights, they will get bulky."

This myth is unfortunately heard a lot. The science behind weight lifting says otherwise. Testosterone is the primary hormone responsible for large muscles. Women simply do not produce nearly enough of it to produce the "bodybuilder" physique some believe they will create. Female bodybuilders who are really built take extra testosterone to attain their size. They do not come by it naturally.
