Prevalent myths about working out we all need to forget

Different trainers in different gyms give different advice when it comes to fitness. This not only becomes contradictory. We remain confused and have a number of unanswered questions.

Myth: Doing squats are bad for your legs.

Fact: Unless and until you are suffering from a knee injury or have been diagnosed with joint diseases, squats are good for your legs. In fact, squats can actually prevent knee pain through squatting.

Myth: We should drink electrolytes are required after every workout

Fact: It completely depends on the duration and intensity of your workout. Electrolyte-pumped energy drinks has extra sugar in it. Instead you can opt for coconut water. Electrolytes slow down the fat-burning process.

Myth: The first thing you should do is Cardio.

Fact: Keep in mind that cardio reduces glycogen levels of our body, which prevents the body from hard and vigorous work-out sessions. Therefore, start with weight training. It will increase testosterone and cortisol levels that are beneficial for intense work-out. For older adults, and the beginners, its good if they start with proper warm up of 10-20 minutes.
