For most people, incorporating a healthy lifestyle is much more difficult than training hard. When people don’t reach their fitness goals, food is the most common reason. No matter what kind of training you do, food will always play a crucial role. So if you’re ready to start a training program, make sure you’re also prepared to focus on your diet.
No. This is a common misconception. Your body changes as an adaption to exercise. If your exercises aren’t difficult enough, there is nothing for your body to adapt to. It’s vital that you push yourself and get close to maxing out your energy on every set. If you can lift a weight for more than 15 reps, it’s most likely too easy. Your muscles will not be able to change shape and/or definition.
On the contrary, an empty stomach actually makes you more likely to burn muscle. Fat is most easily burned in the presence of carbohydrates. Once carbohydrate stores are depleted, the body’s only other source of fuel is protein. Your body breaks down protein into amino acids to make sugar. So if you do cardio long enough to run out of stored glucose, your own muscle tissue can become the source of protein. And keep in mind that having low energy due to a lack of food, can limit your ability to maximize your workouts. We recommend you always eat a very small meal about 30 minutes before you train.
Yes, If done incorrectly you are putting yourself at risk. We recommend if you’re working out on your own, and you don’t have a lot of experience, stick to the simple things, like machines. They control movement for you because the goal is to strengthen one muscle at a time, around an injury.One of the biggest mistake we see people make is they train in a large class constantly with complex movements, like squats or deadlifts. The more complex the exercise, the more likely you are to get hurt when performed incorrectly. So be careful. If you want to do the challenging stuff, either research the correct form on your own, or find an expert to help you!
