Misconceptions, mistakes and myths about exercise can cause a lot of
people to avoid exercise. The following are some tips to clear up any
confusion and improve your work out routine. Don?t let these
misconceptions prevent you from getting the exercise you want and need.

Mistake: Failure to make goals. Many exercise without a goal of where
they want to be. How can you track your progress if you don?t have a
goal? For example, if your goal is weight loss then by tracking your
progress you will be more motivated to continue exercising.

Misconception: No Pain equals No Gain. This is not true. While exercise
will result in soreness, pain is your body telling you that something
is not right. Listen to your body. Start slow and work your way up to
more advanced and intense exercise. Exercise correctly and enjoy the
benefits for the rest of your life.

Pain and soreness is normal following exercise. If you are sore give
your body time to heal before you exercise again. If you work out while
you are in pain you could cause permanent damage to your muscle,
tendons, and ligaments. Secondly, if you are constantly in pain you
will most likely not want to exercise and your new work out program
will be finished.

Mistake: Sacrificing Quality for Quantity: Over exhaustion can lead to
poor form and performing an exercise incorrectly can inhibit results
and lead to injury. In order to increase intensity and push yourself
further safely try increasing the number of sets you do instead of
increasing the number of repetitions per set. If needed decrease the
number of repetitions per set in order to do more sets. This type of
exercise can help develop your fast twitch muscle fibers.

Myth: Lifting Weights make Woman Bulky: Woman can use weight training
to strengthen and tone up, burn fat and increase their metabolism
without getting huge muscles. Woman do not have the hormones to grow
large muscles like men do. The results of weight training also depend a
lot on how weights are used. For example, using progressively heavier
weight while decreasing repetitions is conducive to muscle growth while
lower weight for more reps tones and burns fat.

Mistake: Doing Only what you are Good At: Work on your weaker areas
initially while maintaining your strong points. If you have a strong
upper body then focus on your lower body until you are more balanced.

Exercise is great for health and for life but do it wisely so you can
continue to exercise for a long time.
