In an age dominated by alternative facts and fake news, we thought we would take on a little bit of myth busting ourselves. You see, exercise is a broad area but what that has a huge following, and people are always wanting to know how they can improve what they’re doing. That’s why magazine’s like Women’s Health has to reduce the time it takes to get the perfect abs three times a year. Exercise is just an area of life that is full of factoids.


Which is why we have done a fair bit of digging, a little more researching, and are now attempting to clear up some of the myths that have been circulating the exercise scene for way too long. We hope the truth can set you free.

No Pain No Gain

This has to be the most famous myth out there, one that is spoken of like a religion, with many a gym wall covered in these very words to inspire an unyielding dedication. But while it is true that you should push yourself that little bit further, it is absolutely not true that you need to feel like a broken woman when you are done. Sure, a little bit of discomfort is good, but pain, wow, that is an absolutely no go sensation. There is absolutely gain without pain. you can absolutely get that summer body without killing yourself to get it, which is how it should be. So if you are experiencing pain then we suggest you stop.


Exercise DVDs Are A Waste Of Money

Okay, we know they’re not DVDs anymore, they’re entire exercise packages, but the same myth remains. You see all of these pictures of celebrities that have packed on a lot of weight and then three months later they are looking super trim and, yup, you guessed it they have an exercise DVD or whatever to sell you. Are they a waste of money? Not always no. The trick is to do your research, read reviews, and find the right package for you and in your price range. You may have heard about the new pilates-come-yoga fad, in which case we recommend your look at what people are saying on http://www.piyoreviews.com/. The same goes for anything. The Zumba Dance DVD may be great, but not if you’re trying to build muscle. So do your research and make sure you get the best value for money.

Building Muscle Requires Supplements

This has become a huge market, a billion dollar market, in fact, and that means that certain myths cropping up here and there can only be expected. As for whether you need supplements to build muscle, there is a little bit of truth in there. If you are a woman who goes to the gym a few times a week to stay fit and look lean then supplements aren’t going to do a lot for you. You don’t need to be chucking creatine down your throat breakfast, lunch and dinner. If, however, you are a bodybuilder or even a strength trainer, then yes, the more protein you intake the more you are giving your muscles the chance to grow. This leads to a myth within a myth, because yes protein is needed, but no, it doesn’t have to come from supplements. In fact, if you look here https://www.savorylotus.com/ you’ll see some of the ugly truths. Just get it from food. That’s where the supplements are getting it from, they’re just selling it back to you at a higher price.
