Sport is for professionals
Training is tiring
This idea is true as long as it refers to consuming all your energy (muscular and hepatic glycogen), but it doesn’t mean that training gets you into that state of exhaustion, which would slow down the process of recovery of the body. Even in performance sports, the purpose is to have rather effective than exhausting training, so that the body can get the stimulation necessary to qualitative progress from one training to the next.
Even more than in other sports, in fitness the sportsman is spared overexerting. However, the training must not become ineffective. People can come to the gym tired after a workday and leave relaxed (physically and psychologically) and not more tired. This is extremely useful for people with sedentary jobs, but also for those who make physical effort at work. They could use the training by choosing a type of effort meant to compensate the one involved in their job.
Training takes too long
Any type of exercise is good for solving your problems
You're older? No more exercises!
If you come to think of it, these myths are merely excuses not to workout. We give ourselves an escape route to saying, “you know what, I don’t need to hit the gym or run a mile, I feel healthy and that is more important.“
Though that maybe true in a sense, we also have to understand that physical fitness is 80% of what we eat and 20% of the activities that we do. That includes exercise.
Being healthy is a lifestyle and if we teach our bodies to adapt to the grinds of working out whether in a gym or just around the 4 corners of your home, you will notice a significantly better you.
Trust me, I know. I just started working out last week and I never felt better!
