Exercise and Muscle Building: Choose the Right Path

Exercise and Muscle Building: Choose the Right Path

In earlier days thin, figured and delicate models were chosen as winners of figure competitions. Whereas, most of these competitions held nowadays choose contestants having good figures, but a little muscular body. Some women however hesitate to get into a regular exercise schedule. This is primarily because of the various myths and wrong things being spread about exercise and muscle building.

Myth 1: Exercise and muscle building converts fat into muscle.

Most people think that exercise leads to conversion of fat into muscles and thus hesitate from getting into a regular exercise schedule. However the fact is fat and muscle are entirely different kinds of tissues and neither of can be converted into the other. Weight training builds muscles and accompanied aerobic and other

forms of exercise help in reducing fat. Along with this during the entire exercise and muscle building period people should eat healthy and less fatty food. This adds to the fat loss process and helps in building a good and attractive figure.

Myth 2: Just exercise is sufficient to tone and shape the body.

Most people think that during the entire period of exercise and muscle building, they are free to eat anything and everything they feel like eating assuming regular exercise keeps burning the extra fat. Excessive consumption of calories in the form of fatty and oily food just adds fat and weight to the body.  Even exercise cannot bring any reduction of fat in the bodies of such people and thus fails to tone and shape their bodies. It is always good to eat a healthy and balanced diet during the entire exercise and muscle building schedule, as this food will serve the nutritional needs of the body while it is undergoing a rigorous exercise schedule.

Myth 3: Women should engage just in cardio exercise.

Most wo-men think that even if they engage into exercise and muscle building they should just engage in cardio exercises only, thinking other forms of exercises might lead to an over-built body. If some of these women wish to lift weights, then the weights should be very light as heavy weights might cause overbuild and masculine body. However the facts are that just engaging into cardio causes the burning of fat and muscles for providing fuel to the body and will lead to the loss of muscles. Weight training is of utmost importance in order to build muscles and prevent their loss due to exercise.

I run for my aerobic exercise. You can run, walk, dance; whatever you prefer. Just be certain to do aerobics at least 3 – 4 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each workout. If you are using HIIT or something on that order, obviously you will be spending less time getting in your aerobics.
