From your Personal Trainer- Fitness facts to remember...

I've got to warn you, there are myths still going around about strength training. The truth is that strength training is one of the absolute best things you can do for your health and appearance!

If you've fallen for these 5 myths then you're missing out on tremendous potential results.

It's a Myth...that Muscle Turns Into Fat

Why would anyone want to build muscle if it could morph into fat after a period of disuse? Rest assured that this is a myth of the highest order. Muscle tissue is muscle tissue. Fat tissue is fat tissue. One will never become the other.

It's a Myth...that Strength Training Doesn't Burn Fat.

On the contrary, muscle mass is your number one ally against fat gains. A pound of muscle burns 10-20 calories each day, while you're just living and breathing. Regular strength training helps you increase your muscle mass as well as preserve existing muscle mass, turning you into a fat burning (and firm and toned) machine.

It's a Myth...that Lifting Weights Makes Women Bulk Up

Yes, strength training increases the amount of muscle on your body; so many women take this to mean that their body will become body-builder-esque, which isn't quite the look you're going for. The truth is that the female body simply doesn't contain high enough levels of testosterone to produce those results without a very focused and dedicated effort.

The tighter, toned figure of a recreational female weight lifter is every bit feminine.

It's a Myth...that Strength Training Is For Young People Only

That's a silly excuse that senior citizens across the globe have shattered.

Assuming that your doctor has given you the OK, you have much to gain from a regular weight lifting routine. Improved balance and coordination, better strength and flexibility, and a decreased risk of osteoporosis are just the beginning.

It's a Myth...that Light Weights and High Reps Tone Best

This myth, popularized in the 90's, that very high repetitions of very light weights would result in a toned physique, has become outdated. These high repetitions will increase your muscular endurance but will not add strength. We now know that in order to truly challenge your muscles, it's important to vary the load, reps, sets, etc. it's important to lift heavier weights with lower repetitions. Shoot for 8-20 repetitions and fatigue your muscles with each set. Perform multiple sets of the same exercise to challenge your muscles to grow stronger over time.

Including strength training as a part of your fitness routine is essential for achieving a fit and toned body.
