Most people have absolutely no clue whatsoever about how they should go about designing their training sessions.
They walk into the gym and immediately head over to the free weights or machines – without warming up – and dive in, head first, into an incredibly inefficient training session; and, in most cases I observe, a workout that usually does more harm to their bodies than good.
This is because not only are they performing exercises incorrectly, with bad form and/or in the wrong sequences, but they are also just focusing on one aspect of a training session: lifting.
If you know me or have been reading this blog for quite some time, you’d know that one of the things I most hate about the fitness industry is the perpetual amount of misinformation that continues to circulate, no matter how many times proven incorrect.
One of the biggest myths out there is that in order to burn more body fat, we should all eat 6 small(er) meals per day, as opposed to 3 big(ger) ones.
One of the biggest dietary myths floating around out there is that you should eat as soon as you wake up, and consume most of your calories in the morning and early afternoon.
Anyone that has ever tried this, however, will tell you that about an hour after eating their chicken breast and steamed broccoli for dinner, they soon find themselves raiding the freezer for that half pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked that they were supposedly saving for “Game of Thrones” on Sunday. #CheatDay
