There are so many misconceptions in the fitness industry you get to hear and see every now and then. Many people are searching for the easiest way to achieve results. However, they end up falling victim to misinformation from individuals who pose as instructors with the sole aim of profiting from desperate women looking for different ways to lose weight.
In the world of fitness, wrong ideologies and concepts can be just as detrimental to the health of an individual.
In this article I will share some common fitness myths that have been trending over time.
Stretch Before Working Out
This is one slang that is taught in most gyms. Experientially, static stretches (holding a stretch without movement) before a workout actually tires the muscles and weakens performance. The preferred way is to do them after exercising. Do warm-ups instead. Other activities you can engage in include: leg swings, dynamic stretches (the muscles are being used to bring about a stretch) and a host of others. These activities will help provide the necessary foundation upon which to have an effective workout experience.
