Are you spending hours at the gym and not seeing the results you were hoping for? Most likely this is a result of some poor fitness advice. Here are some common fitness myths and misconceptions that won’t help you reach your personal health goals.
Crunches are the key to flat abs
How many of you have done crunches after hitting the buffet? Unfortunately, this classic ab workout isn’t actually the most effective way to slim down your midsection. If you want a toned look, you need to focus on burning the layer of fat that may be covering your belly. Experts say that losing this fat can only come from a combination of interval training, utilizing carbs effectively, getting adequate sleep, keeping your stress levels low, and finding the fitness routine that works for you (ideally with a personal trainer or coach). Ultimately, the only thing you’re going to lose by doing crunches is your time.
