You try to lose that stubborn fat in your belly by doing sit ups. Yes, it can make you sweat, but it doesn’t really guarantee to give you that flat tummy you’ve been dreaming of.

This is only one of the things that you probably don’t know about fitness. There are plenty other fitness secrets that might surprise you.


Let’s debunk some more fitness myths:

You don’t burn more calories if you work out in warm places. Colorado State researchers studied the connection between heat and calorie loss. They studied people doing yoga exercises in hot places. They found out that it doesn’t do much to losing calories and weight. It may cut off some of those calories, but because of the combination of the heat and the difficulty of the yoga positions.

Spot tone doesn’t work. People think that the area of the body that they work out will be the one that will lose fat or calories. Just because you do leg raises, doesn’t mean you will have thinner thighs. Or just because you do sit ups, doesn’t mean you will have smaller waistline. You should lose weight and burn calories by doing cardiovascular exercises and resistance training first. After you lost that weight, you can tone the muscles you choose through spot tone programs.

Running does not necessarily lead to weight loss. Running can even make you gain weight because of the appetite. You should do alternate work out. Run for this day, the next day you must to resistance workouts.

It is not the muscle that made you heavier after hitting the gym. People say muscles are heavier than fats, which is why they gained weight after hitting the gym. Yes, muscles are denser than fat, but it is the increased appetite that actually made you heavier. Follow a balanced program where you burn fat and strengthen your muscle.

Exercising without losing weight is still good. People think the main reason for exercising is to lose weight. Even if you don’t lose weight, as long as you exercise, you still contribute a great deal for your overall health.

Here are some bonus fitness secrets:

  • Cardio Muscles don’t show the accurate count of calories you burn
  • Sit ups don’t flatten your belly
  • You don’t have to spend too much time in the gym to lose weight
  • Stretching does not prevent injury, but it boost flexibility
  • It is never too late to get fit
