Myths of the Gym
More hours spent in the gym will lead to better results.
In Reality: If you think making the gym your second home is a great way to get results, think again. Overtraining is a surefire way to stop any muscle growth, instead of your body continuing to break it down. This means you will start to lose muscle tissue. You need to train SMARTER, not HARDER.
If you want to be strong, you need to get huge.
In Reality: Strength and size do not have a direct correlation. Power Training encompasses training that may not add any size, yet you can still see strength improvement.
Muscle turns to fat.
In Reality: Just as fat can’t transform into muscle, muscle won’t transform into fat. Building muscle and losing body fat are two completely different processes. In order to gain muscle, you must consume more calories than you burn and, in order to lose body fat, you must burn more calories than you consume.
