We get to read a lot of stuff regarding what works best in the fitness world if you are looking forward to losing weight or gaining muscle, what totkas from the kitchen would help you ‘lose weight in 7 days’ and which diet supplements worked for falani actress, hence should work for us the same (ah, the assumptions we make!) But hey, for a change, let’s just have a look at a few facts here that you probably didn’t know about the fitness world and how things work here. Some might come off as shocking and others might leave you thinking and reconsidering your choices.
Outside the gym is where you burn the most calories
No kidding! And all this time we were working so hard, running so fast paced on the treadmill and doing all those squats and lunges thinking we are burning calories sath sath? Well, this is much of a shocker. Yes, you get rid of your calories, not during that one hour spent at the gym every day, rather during all those other hours you are busy doing… life! You can add to that fact by doing as much physical work as possible throughout the day and not just be active at the gym.
Your fat says goodbye through your breathing
Where else do you think it leaves from? *insert poop emoji* Nope, your body doesn’t ‘excrete’ fat for heaven’s sake! Neither does it leave through your paseena, which is a very common notion that even the best of fitness junkies believe to be true, but it isn’t. It leaves your body with all that exhaling, ever wonder why else yoga works so well for weight loss? But don’t just start panting intentionally now, that won’t work.
Exercise is gender specific
If something is working out for your hubby at the gym, doesn’t mean you start following the same for yourself. Yes, it’s good to stay motivated by working out with each other but don’t consider copying each other’s moves. That’s because your bodies respond to workouts in a different manner, it’s gender specific. Hence, your exercise routine also needs to be designed accordingly.
Exercise alone never works
If you are only focusing on your gym hours, all that time spent lifting weights or on the treadmill and otherwise you don’t mind having a cheese burger for lunch after every two days, you are literally wasting your time. A well-balanced diet and exercise go hand in hand, neither is complete without the other, in order to reap full benefits you have to plan your diet according to your workout routine.
If you run, don’t warm up
We know, we know, how it has always been emphasized how crucial warm ups are before exercising. But recent studies have shown that if you are into running and going out for a jog, you don’t have to do it. At all. It really impacts your strength to perform well during your running session and the impact is not positive in nature.
