5 myths around strength training – Free weights and the importance of warm-up

[/fusion_title][fusion_text] It’s well known that exercise should be an integral part of our daily lives. However, there is a “bombardment of information on the internet about what is right and what is wrong” In fact, this information is often contradictory. What happens is that those who have reached a good level of fitness actually don’t know how to continue. And at the same time, those who want to start exercising don’t seem to have a clear idea of what to do. Today we will focus on the myths around exercise, which essentially mislead trainees and distract them from their goals.

Myth #1: You can lose weight only with aerobic exercise

How many times have you heard that aerobic training is a must if you want to lose weight and strength training is only for those who want to become muscular? It’s not true… Aerobic exercise helps you lose calories, however this process happens only during training. This means that if you continue to do solely aerobics, at some point you will stop losing weight. On the contrary, by doing strength training, your metabolism continues to “work” for several hours after exercise, while at the same time, weights sculpt and structure your body.

Myth #2: Warm-up and recovery are not important parts of training

And yet, warm-up and recovery play a leading role! Warming up is important not only because it helps prevent injuries but also because it gives you the necessary stimulus – both physically and mentally – for a strong workout program. It is impossible for your body to lift heavy if you aren’t properly warmed-up. Cooling down is also a “key” to preventing muscle aches and cramps. You give your body a chance to relax after a hard workout and the benefits are huge.

Myth #3: The more you sweat, the better

It’s easy to believe that the more we sweat, the better we train. However, this is not the case. When you are trying to increase your strength, you should focus on exercises with a few repetitions and a lot of weight. You may not sweat a lot, but this type of workout is probably the most effective for your goal.

Myth #4: Free weights are better than machines

It is believed that machines are only for “beginners”, while free weights are used by those who have reached a certain level. There is a little truth in this, but in no case is it true that all machines are for the “inexperienced”. To be precise, there are many machines that offer maximum results if one of good physical condition wants to level up. Also, machines are the best choice when it comes to muscle isolation.

Myth #5: If you want results, change your training plan regularly

It’s a good idea to change your workout routine a few times, but that doesn’t mean you have to do something new every time you go to the gym. In fact, this process may slow down your goals. How is it possible to optimize your results if you don’t constantly repeat specific exercises?
