Five Myths About Fitness Exercises1. Sport is for professionals. This idea applies only in the case of performance sports. The native qualities required for professional sportsmen (speed, skills, specific height, etc..) Can only be developed, they can not be formed by training. As the purpose of a regular person is not performance, almost all sports can be practiced for keeping the body in good shape. It's all about dosing the training you chose, so that the benefits are greater than the wear and tear. Even the sports considered tough can be practiced "softly" in a way (tae-bo, mini-triathlon, jogging, etc..).
2. Training is tiring. This idea is true as it relates to consuming all your energy (muscular and hepatic glycogen), but it does not mean that training gets you into that state of exhaustion which would slow down the process of recovery of the body. Even in running sports, the goal is to have rather effective than exhausting training, so that the body can get the stimulation necessary qualitative progress of exercising to the next.
Even more than in other sports, in fitness the sportsman is overexerting parts. However, training must not become ineffective. People can come to the gym tired after a work day and leave relaxed (physically and psychologically) and more tired. This is extremely useful for people with sedentary jobs, but also for those who do physical work effort. They could use the training by choosing a type of effort meant to compensate the one involved in their work.
3. The training takes too long. Again, this idea is true if applied at runtime, which can only be achieved by working hard. But also short-circuit in this case and intense training or training for relaxation and recovery are often performed. In physical form, you can get 20 minute training, super-series operation only fast exercises, which could involve, directly or indirectly, all the muscles. Anyway, regular training should not take longer than an hour and a half. Otherwise, the body enters the catabolic upset when the cortisone secretions 'cannibalize' the muscles.
4. Any type of exercise is good for your problems. What is true in this refers to some particular cases like excess of adipose tissue. This tissue can be 'melted' by any kind of aerobic exercise (running, cycle, swimming) if this is continued long enough. Even in these cases it was clear that some exercises are more effective than others. There are situations when only a combination of exercises with a certain amount of each, can provide you the results you expect. More than that, repeating the same exercise all the time can therefore not only losing balance in the antagonist muscles and joints involved in training, but also stopping progress or even regressing.
5. You are older? More exercise! This is true only if we refer to extremely demanding efforts (really heavy weights, fast running, jumping, etc..). There are lots of exercises adapted to different ages. Their purpose is to keep and improve health and also improve fitness. The development of movement parameters for older people refers especially to muscular strength and cardiovascular as well as the mobility of joints. Since the ultimate goal of training is not preparing for competition, the exercises can be organized gradually according to their difficulty, eliminating the risk of accidents. Since it's based on perseverance, fitness can be adapted without problems for older people and even people with different specific diseases of old age.
