5 Myths about the Fitness Exercises

 5 Myths about the Fitness Exercises


 1. Sport is reserved for pros.
This concept only applies to high-performance sports.
The natural characteristics needed of professional athletes (speed, talents, particular height, etc.) can only be developed; they cannot be created via training.
As long as an average person's goal is not performance, virtually any sport may be done to maintain the body in excellent condition.
It's all about dosing the training you've chosen so that the advantages outweigh the drawbacks.
Even challenging sports may be performed gently (the-bo, mini-triathlon, jogging, etc.).

2. Training is exhausting.
This concept is correct as long as it relates to using all of your energy (muscular and hepatic glycogen). Still, it does not imply that exercise causes fatigue, which would slow down the body's recovery process.
Even in performance sports, the goal is to have more effective training than taxing so that the body gets the stimulus it needs to improve qualitatively from one session to the next.

Fitness athletes are protected against overexertion even more than athletes in other sports.
The training, however, must not become ineffectual.
People may arrive at the gym weary after a long day at work and leave relaxed (physically and mentally) and not tired.
This is very beneficial not just for individuals who have sedentary occupations but also for those who exert physical effort at work.
They might put their training to work by deciding on an effort that would reward the person engaged in their employment.

3. Training requires an excessive amount of time.
Again, this concept holds when applied to performance, which can only be achieved by putting in a lot of effort.
However, brief bursts of high-intensity exercise or training for relaxation and healing are common in this situation.
In fitness, you may achieve 20-minute training by doing just a super-series of rapid exercises that may engage, directly or indirectly, all of the muscles.
In any case, regular exercise should not last more than an hour and a half.
Otherwise, the body would enter a catabolic state, in which cortisol releases will 'cannibalize' the muscles.

4. Any activity will help you solve your issues.
What is true here pertains to specific situations, such as an excess of fat tissue.
Any aerobic activity (running, cycling, swimming) can melt this tissue if done for a long enough period.
Even under these situations, it was apparent that specific exercises were more beneficial than others.
There are times when only a mix of workouts, with a specific quantity of each, can provide the desired effects.
Furthermore, constantly repeating the same exercise may lead to a loss of balance in the antagonist's muscles and joints engaged in training and a halt in development or even regress.

5. Are you older?
There will be no more workouts!
This is only true if we talk about challenging tasks (hefty weights, fast running, jumping, etc.).
There are many workouts tailored to various ages.
Their goal is to maintain and enhance health, as well as to improve physical condition.
The development of movement parameters in older individuals focuses on muscle and cardio-vascular resistance and joint mobility.
Because the ultimate goal of training is not to prepare for a competition, the exercises may be arranged progressively based on their complexity, reducing the chance of accidents.
Since it is built on persistence, fitness may be easily adapted for older individuals and even for those suffering from various ailments associated with old age.
