Training Myths – Get Rid of Butt Fat Busts Them
Training Myths #1
Training myths and lies abound throughout the health industry. So, before we cut to the chase and get down to exercise, it will benefit us to get rid of some of the myths and Media/Health Industry/Hollywood driven nonsense. Time to set the record straight and bust some training myths.
The following video demonstrates my point very adequately…Over 59 million people have viewed this… So a very large percentage of them will have taken it as gospel that this is how to lose weight and get fit. It may be the way to start if you are recovering from a serious injury, but is more physiotherapy than anything else.
Training Myths #1 – Busted!
You can’t lose weight, lose cellulite, fat or whatever or however you wish to label it, by doing very minimal movement exercise at a slow pace. Not unless you’ve never done a day of exercise in your life. Your body has to be exerted to be burning fat.
If you are vastly over-weight, then, a brisk 15 minute walk that makes you sweat is enough to raise your metabolic rate (heart rate and energy you give out) and help you burn fat. However, once the weight starts to drop and you get fitter, this same exercise no longer stresses your system – your metabolic rate remains low. Any exercise to begin with is a starting point and more beneficial than doing no exercise.
A sedentary person (couch potato) gives off approximately 80 watts per hour of energy just mooching around…Going for a brisk walk or gentle jog can bring that energy output level up to 800 watts per hour. Doing any exercise that can only be maintained for a minute or less before exhaustion sets in, raises that output in to the region of 5000 – 8000 watts per hour. Doing anything explosively that can only be maintained for seconds will send that reading in to the high tens of thousands.
Herein lies the secret to fast weight loss and the secret to improving speed and power endurance…What this all means and how to apply that knowledge is all coming up.
Training Myths #2
You need to do long sessions of boring cardio exercise to lose weight.
Training Myths #2 – Busted!
Prolonged sessions of cardio exercise can actually hamper your weight loss and fitness. Normal cardio sessions involve low-intensity aerobic activity over a long duration of time. It is impossible to maintain any form of exercise at a high intensity for long periods of time. As your body needs fuel to maintain this activity, it will break down your bodies protein (muscle tissue) to keep itself going…As muscle is the one thing that actually burns fat, then this is not a desirable thing.
However, this does not mean that you should avoid aerobic activity. Aerobic exercises help strengthen your cardiovascular system and transport more blood to your muscles to help promote growth and repair. The trick is to strike a balance…Typical aerobics is not a muscle-building exercise but does burn body fat and improve your cardiovascular fitness.
The most time-effective and scientifically proven method to build cardiovascular fitness, lose weight and maintain muscle mass is through interval training. No athlete or sportsman/woman uses their chosen sport to get them fit. They all train to get fit, that fitness then helps them to excel at their chosen sport.
Don’t get me wrong, if you love spending hours on the treadmill and that is your thing then all well and good. But interval training will improve your running if that is what you like to do.
Interval training can be carried out using a lot of differing exercises and time frames to suite the health and needs of the individual…My favourite is The Tabata Protocol which is very short and intense but not recommended for those just starting out…More on this later.
Training Myths #3
No pain, no gain!
Training Myths #3 – Busted!
This half-baked truth is played out in Gyms World-wide. Along with the instruction that ALL weight training must be done in 3 sets of 10 reps. Always using a weight that allows the 10th rep to be the failing point. The point at which another rep cannot be achieved.
Body builders don’t train in this fashion, neither do athletes…So why on earth is JO PUBLIC told to train in this manner? Could the cynical Health Industry be milking it’s misguided and ill-informed cash-cows for every single penny of their worth? You feel free to draw your own conclusions.
Working your muscles to failure has an adverse affect on your central nervous system and can put you off training through demoralisation and injury…An easy way to get new clients through a Gym turnstile and keep old subscriptions going at the same time…cynical me!
The truth is that in order to increase muscle mass, you either have to do MORE work in the SAME time period or the same amount of work in less time.
The idea is to gradually challenge your muscles to do MORE work within a standard time period, literally FORCING them to grow.
Training Myths #4
Training Myth For the ladies…”If I go to the gym I’ll end up looking like the Incredible Hulk and I don’t want to look like that!”
Training Myth For the men…”Hmmm, if I just show-up to the gym I’ll pack on muscle and look like the Incredible Hulk – sounds good to me!”
Training Myths #4 – Busted!
In all honesty, this particular lie/myth plays to the vanity of both sexes. Even though men can gain bigger muscles quicker than women due to their higher levels of testosterone, neither can pack on huge amounts of muscle without living in the gym, and living in the gym for years not weeks. Pro body builders and athletes can spend upwards of 5 hours a day training (there is a smarter way for the well-informed), so try telling them that they’ve only got to show up to generate a startling physique or World-breaking performance…At best you’d be slightly mocked or the humiliated athlete would be making you eat his or her sweaty training towel.
Training Myths #5
The latest Gizmo, Training aid, pill etc will reduce the fat, cellulite off specific areas of your body.
Training Myths #5 – Busted!
This really is a marketing piece of genius…Playing to vanity, laziness and ignorance…This effect only happens through surgery. If you have 30% body fat composition, that 30% is spread across your entire body and will remove itself from your entire body if you put the work in…No amount of gizmos will reduce fat in one area and not anywhere else.
I could go on for hours about the rubbish spouted about exercise and diet (don’t get me started – topic for a later date). My point is that there is a way to train smarter that will get you the results you desire without killing you, killing your purse strings or killing your enthusiasm.
Next time I’ll be going through with you what I did to lose the weight and get physically fit.
Remember…Strength is the foundation to everything.
