Hey y’all! Welcome to this week’s post. Today, I am going to be busting false fitness myths!
Hi!! How are y’all doing? Yesterday I got my first dose for the COVID vaccine! If you haven’t already, I encourage you to get it as well! It’s important to protect yourself AND others 🙂
LET’S GET STARTED!
Lifting weights will make you bulky
This is not true AT ALL. Some people are afraid to lift weights because they think they’ll end up superrr muscular and big. Weight training alone makes you strong, but not bulky. However, being bulky isn’t a bad thing and neither is having muscle. Lift your weights!!
Spot reduction works
This myth might disappoint some of y’all but doing 10 minute ab exercises won’t give you solid abs. Everyone has abs but they are just covered by fat. So, if you want more visible abs you have to reduce your body fat everywhere, not just your stomach. Therefore, core exercises alone won’t reduce stomach fat; but cardio and weightlifting along with some ab exercises will.
Static stretch before a workout
False! In order to prevent injuries, dynamic stretching is way more effective than static. Some dynamic stretches are knee hugs, arm circles, inchworms, etc. Static stretching is better for after a workout to help with flexibility and prevent soreness.

Welcome to this week’s blog post! I hope you enjoy and leave feeling inspired!
Raise your hand if you have ever failed at something. Raise your hand if you have ever used failure to push yourself to succeed.
I’m sure all of us have experienced failure in our life. But the question is, what do you do after you fail? Do you just quit and give up? Of course not. I used to always think failing at something meant that I was a failure. But that’s not even close to the truth. Failure is just a part of success.
For example: I’m pretty sure running up a mountain is difficult. You may stumble across rocks and fall in the dirt. But, falling forward still counts as progress. A fall with get you closer to the top. You see, obtaining success is difficult. You may encounter different setbacks and difficulties. But, even if you fail to overcome those obstacles, you’re still one step closer to success.
Failing at something just shows that you are on the road to success.
Failing and using that as motivation to work harder is okay. Failing and giving up is not okay.
Next time you fail, don’t get so down on yourself. Most people won’t even try at something for the fear of not being able to succeed. In order to succeed, you have to fail ❤
