Our favourite gym myths
The internet can be such a good place for information on a number of topics, one of them being fitness and nutrition. However read long enough and you'll come across far more rubbish than good.
We wanted to de-bunk our favourite myths not only from the internet but what we hear in and around the gym.
Most of you by now will know something about recovery sessions (AR) especially if you're a reader of CrossFit.com and other fitness publications but some of you still are in the dark in regards to this life changing tactic, so let us help.
Your workout efficiency will ultimately determine your results. Its no use sitting around the gym for an hour if you’re only going to get 20 minutes of solid work in. Efficiency is measured by two factors; the amount of work completed and the intensity of your workout.
Here are 4 ways your can increase your workout efficiency and make sure you’re results don’t suffer.
Stretching is your pension plan
Stretching is something EVERYONE forgets to do. Now everyone knows that stretching is beneficial for avoiding injuries, so why are you still not doing it? What if I told you that by stretching you could not only avoid an injury but you could also gain muscle tone and recover quicker?
When we exercise we cause small damages to the muscles we've worked. Then eating the right nutrients and rest repairs the damage. Well stretching (before and after) also damages the muscles allowing us to add a greater result once we've replenishes them. So what are you waiting for? There's no need to spend extra time in the gym just do what your suppose to.
