Did you think that by running miles each day will put you in good health and shape? Think again. You might be exaggerating the necessary exercise and causes more negative than positive effects. A recent study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology showed that excessive running can be fatal in the end.
Scientists studied more than 1,000 healthy runners and non-runners in a span of 12 years. They found that those who ran for more than four hours a week and those who did not exercise at all practically have higher mortality rates. This seemed a testimony to the word "too much of anything is bad."
If you are someone who spent too many hours to run, exercising or performing any type of exercise, but not seeing results, then it may have been the victim of misinformation. It is likely that these data are not outright lies, half-truths. Here are some facts to consider.
1. Running on the treadmill is the best alternative to reduce stress on the knees.
Running, either on a treadmill or not, it's good exercise. However, it really puts pressure on the knees. No matter where, it is true that the knees widely used for training. This can be easily solved by varying your routine and mixing activities to reduce pressure on the knees. This way, you can be sure to enjoy running in the coming years.
2. Sweating is a sign of better performance.
Did you think that an ounce of sweat equals fewer calories? Not exactly the right equation.Sweating is a natural process of the body to help release toxins from our body to keep you cool under intense activity. Just think about it, when you exercise during cold weather, sweat less. But if you exercise for a while, you sweat more. Sweating does not necessarily reveal the amount of calories you burned; however, if you never sweat during a workout you need to check if you have a thyroid problem or your routine is not only strong enough.
3. Crunching is the key to flat stomach.
For starters, round belly is caused by fat. And the fat can not be removed by crunches.Crunching is to tone your abs, taking into tight. It follows exercise to burn fat. You need to burn belly fat first and then the skin tone and muscle lose by doing crunches.
If you think you are making a great effort in the exercise, but not receiving any results, is not it time to rethink about their techniques and see if it is a fact or a myth?
