You’ve heard this so many times before – that running or spin classes are the best way to burn fat; but anyone who actually knows what they’re talking about can tell you that long cardio sessions increase cortisol levels (a hormone) and your body starts to burn muscle rather than fat (it’ll actually start holding on to fat at this point!).
Interval training and weight training are actually the best ways to increase your metabolism and burn more calories.
RUBBISH! In the morning your body is craving nutrition after a long night of fasting (break the fast!). Exercising when your body is depleted of nutrients and probably dehydrated is dangerous for one, but also how hard will you/your muscles be able to work without fuel?
Exercising in the morning IS a good idea – purely because you won’t have all day to think of “reasons” (excuses) not to do your workout. But it should NEVER be on an empty stomach.
There is actually no evidence to prove that exercising in the morning burns more calories, and with health in mind, don’t do it on an empty stomach!
Myth No.3 – Following a programme that works the area’s you want to lose fat from will actually work
This is a HUGE one that many people just can’t seem to get their heads around! Contrary to popular belief, you can’t get a flat stomach by doing hundreds of sit-ups every day.
Weight loss works on a microscopic level. Your muscles burn calories for fuel so the more muscles you work, and the harder you work them, the more calories you will burn. And because it works on a microscopic level, the fat you’re burning will be being broken down across your entire body, regardless of what muscle you’re working at the time.
Another big one that people struggle with (probably because it’s been drilled into us by magazines and word of mouth for so long).
As I said above, it’s the muscles that burn the calories – so the more muscle you have, the more calories you’ll burn.
You need to work your muscles as hard as you can for them to grow bigger and stronger – and this won’t make you “bulky” unless you’re following a strict, intense bodybuilding plan and eating like a horse! EVERYONE should be aiming to build muscle. Read more…
