  1. Myth: Flat abs can be gained only with crunches

Flat abs can be gained only with crunches

Truth: You will start losing the flab when all the abdominal muscles are put to work. Crunches
alone cannot do that.

  1. Myth: You have to sweat a lot to burn more fat

You have to sweat a lot to burn more fat

Truth: If that would have been the case, we would have got in shape every summer. Along with the ambient temperature, the body temperature also matters to shed fat.

  1. Myth: Yoga is not a workout

Yoga is not a workout

Truth: The common misconception that people have about yoga is that it includes light stretches and meditation. Seriously, this is not true. Yoga is an extensive fitness process with multiple levels and categories.

  1. Myth: For better results, you should work out every day

For better results, you should work out every day

Truth: As rigorous workouts result in breaking down the muscle fibers, it is important to give your body the time to rebuild stronger ones in its place. A hiatus of one or two days between workouts is, therefore, needed.

  1. Myth: Strength training needs the use of machines and heavy weights

Strength training needs the use of machines and heavy weights

Truth: Strength training involves resistance to grow muscles. For that, you can use dumbbells, medicine balls, resistance bands and other gymming tools.  

  1. Myth: Morning is the best time to work out

Morning is the best time to work out

Truth: You can choose any time of the day for your workout and stick to it. Be it early morning or in the evening, gymming and fitness are all about consistency. 

  1. Myth: Gymming helps you to lose fat from certain parts of your body

Gymming helps you to lose fat from certain parts of your body

Truth: The concept of spot training is hypothetical as fat cells are present throughout our body. So, once you start working out you will lose fat but not from a particular part of the body.
