Crunches are the key to abs.
Cardio is the best way to lose weight.
Science Insider spoke with three professional trainers to debunk a ton of exercise myths that people continue to believe.
The trainers discussed 17 exercise myths that do more harm than good.
A few of myths include morning being the best time to workout, stretching prevents injuries, cardio doesn’t burn fat, you can’t target specific areas, muscle weighs more than fat and that the scale is the best way to monitor progress or regression.
The video tackles a few of the myths surrounding women and exercises, especially focusing on women who don’t lift weights because it will “make them bulky.”
My favorite line in the nine-minute video comes from Andy Stern, trainer and creator of Rumble Boxing.
“Abs are made in the kitchen and not from crunches.”
