4 Biggest Muscle Building Myths

MUSCLE MYTH 1:

YOU NEED TO LIFT HEAVY WEIGHTS TO GET A STRONG, MUSCULAR BODY

Western fitness is very narrow minded. They believe that weights are the “end-all-be-all” system for increasing overall strength. Its simply a lie.

Research has now proven that you DON’T need heavy, dangerous weights to build strength and get an attractive, muscular body. Think about this… Have you ever seen someone lifting heavy weights in their later years?

Nope.

Why is that?

Its because lifting heavy weights over a long time will destroy your joints. You may not feel it at first but the aches and pains will come and turn into full blown injuries.

Getting a healthy, strong and functional body does not require throwing around heavy weights in an expensive gym. It can be done using just your own body weight.

MUSCLE MYTH 2:

YOU NEED TO WORKOUT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME

Many years ago, I was a member of a local YMCA. Frequently, I saw the same guys when I got there… AND when I left the gym. I think they spentmore time checking out girls or looking at their artificially-inflated muscles in the mirror than they actually worked out. They believed that workouts must be long.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. You don’t need to waste your precious time sitting in a gym doing endless repetitions. In fact, getting a rock-hard physique can be done using just 3-4 short workouts each week.

Isn’t that great?! You get the body you want in less time than most people spend even driving to the gym!

MUSCLE MYTH 3:

YOU NEED TO HAVE GOOD GENES

You might have heard fitness “gurus” talk about how genetics create certain body styles. Most commonly they call these body styles “mesomorph”, “ectomorph” and “endomorph”. They say that mesomorph people have a much easier time building muscle. In essence, they were born with “good genes”.

Now, I am not saying that genes don’t have anything to do with how quickly your strength improves and how quickly you can build a muscular physique.

Sure, there is a seed of truth to it. However, bad genes can be quickly overcome by the right training method.

Don’t believe the lie that you are doomed to be weak, skinny and in poor health just because you were dealt the wrong genetic hand. The right training system can quickly give you an amazing physique and functional strength.

Now I’d like to share with you the unique research study that will transform your view of physical fitness.

MUSCLE MYTH 4:

YOU NEED A MEMBERSHIP TO AN EXPENSIVE GYM

Local health clubs and gyms want you to believe that you need to have access to all the latest fancy equipment in order to get a muscular physique.

Their advertisements claim that they have “free weights”, “ellipticals”, “machines”, “treadmills” and so much more. Seriously, you think you need all that stuff? Really, its just a distraction.

Think of it this way. Gyms are trying to tailor to the mass market… people that like to yap their jaw by the water cooler or sit naked in the hot tub (yeah, it happens every day across thousands of locker rooms). The gym needs to recoup their cost by charging you MORE… whether you use all the equipment or not. Its like you are paying for people you don’t know to use equipment you’ve never used! What a waste!
