I Can’t Believe It! 7 Workout Myths Proven Wrong

6. No Pain No Gain.

True, if it doesn’t challenge you it wont change you…but if it hurts you then something isn’t right. How can you decipher soreness from pain? If you feel the same level of soreness more than 48 hours after a tough workout, (it should taper off) then this may be a sign of a pulled muscle or other injury. Also if you feel pain in your muscles or joints during exercise that too may be worth a doctors investigation. But lets not get it twisted. Feeling the burn should not be confused with muscle/joint discomfort. The burn is where you want to be as this is exactly where your results live.

7. Exercising on an empty stomach will burn more fat.

Lies. There is no true evidence supporting this notion so fuel up before you cut up at the gym. Not only will you move slower, doing so can also lead to muscle loss as the body pulls energy from protein when carbohydrates aren’t present. So keep it light with a snack that has about 30g of carbs. If you can’t stomach food before a workout then sprint to the dining room table no more than 30 minutes after your workout to refuel asap.
