4 Fat Burning Myths Explained – How To Build Muscle Quickly-mide-031

Fitness-Equipment Nothing will help you achieve your muscle building goals better than knowing the truth about how your body burns fat and how to build muscle quickly. Following are four of the most popular myths/misconceptions about burning/losing fat. Myth #1 – You can choose/specify to lose fat only in specific parts of your body. This is not possible. When your body loses fat, it happens all throughout your body. Doing targeted exercises or exercises that concentrates on a specific muscle group can and will build/grow the muscles in the targeted body part more. Yes, this will make the targeted body part appear tighter and more fit. However, it doesn’t mean that the targeted body part loses more fat than the rest of your body. Myth #2 – The body completely shuts off one fuel source when it turns on the other. Contrary to popular belief, the body draws energy from fat and carbs all the time. However, depending on the situation, it may draw more energy from one of these sources. In normal circumstances, like when you’re watching TV, you could be burning about 50-60 percent fat and 50-40 percent carbohydrates. But if you would suddenly get up and start jogging in place, your body start burning more carbs than fat. And if you’d keep jogging, your body may shift to burning more fat than carbs (to preserve the carbohydrate level in your body). The thing is, keeping your body fit will enable your body to make the shifts sooner thus burning more fat than carbs. The bottom line is your body doesn’t and will never completely shut down either one of these energy sources. Myth #3 – Doing aerobic exercise is the best way to burn fat. Although doing aerobic exercises is a good way to stay fit and burn fat, it is not substantially better at fat reducing than any other type of exercise. Fact is, weight training builds more muscle and could help your body burn fat more quickly. Myth #4 – Low-intensity exercises burn fat better than high-intensity exercises. This is actually half true. Since your body requires less energy to perform low-intensity exercises, it burns a higher percentage of fat. However, since you are using less energy, you are also burning fewer calories. Fact is, even though you are burning a higher percentage of fat, you are actually losing a lower total amount of fat than you would if you were to perform high-intensity exercises (which requires more energy). Doing higher intensity exercises/workouts may cause you to burn a lower percentage of fat, but since you burn more total calories, you are also burning more fat calories.
