Do you know that you might be wasting time in the gym? What if you were told that everything you have done till now could have been better? You see most people don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong in the world of bodybuilding and they tend to believe in whatever they are told. There are some deadly body building myths most people believe in which are completely not true. Read on to discover what these myths are before you suffer in the long run…
More reps means more muscle mass- This is one of the biggest myths most people think is true. More reps does not always mean more muscle mass. Lifting heavy weights with lesser amount of reps will get you more muscle mass then lifting lighter weights and doing hundreds of reps. There you should always keep your reps short and weights heavy if you want to get anywhere.
Training should be done everyday- This is another big myth most people believe in thinking the more they train the better they would be. You see your muscles grow when you give them some rest and not when you strain them all the time. Most professionals out there workout 5 days or less a week since they understand that they would only get massive gains when they give their body perfect rest.
Machines are better than free weights- Why do you feel most professional body builders out there tend to rely more on machines and less on free weights? Machines do not provide with the kind of workout that free weight can. Free weight will always provide you faster results in comparison to the machines.
