Fitness Myth: Go All Out
A lot of us fitness fanatics or fitness failures are victims to this myth and honestly believe that if we want to lose weight, or get into super shape, we have to go all out or we might as well not even bother at all. While Iím not entirely sure where this myth originated, I can assure you that it's not all true.
Yes, in order to get into great shape you absolutely must workout hard, eat properly and be dedicated to your goals. But it does not mean if you miss one day at the gym you are a failure and you might as well drop all your goals because youíve missed out on that one day.
Believe it or not, this is commonly experienced by many ó and not just with exercise, but with diet too. How many times have you been so good on your diet and stuck to it 100% only to fall off the wagon by munching on a chocolate and then giving up on your diet altogether, returning to your old bad habits? Iím sure I have a lot of heads nodding right now. It happens over and over again.
The key to your success is being healthy all year round and working out as regularly as possible. By regularly, I mean a minimum of three times per week and for a maximum of one hour (unless youíre competing in a fitness or body building competition) and a maximum of six times per week. Itís not about getting in shape for summer and spending five hours a day in the gym in order to reach those goals. If you put your body under such extremities and pressure, it's possible that you will fail faster than you think.
