*Tip: A person can do crunches till they pass out, and still might not get a six-pack. Why? If they have a high percentage of body fat, their abs will be covered with fat. Doing ab exercises will not necessarily make them lose that belly fat, either. We asked exercise physiologists, personal trainers in nyc and nutritionists about their most hated exercise myths. Everyone is looking to maximize results at the same time minimizing effort and time in the gym. The search for shortcuts has resulted into a lot of myths about exercise. The truth is, one cannot spot train (otherwise, wouldn’t we all be running around with flat stomachs and slim thighs?). In order to get visibly toned abs, we must first reduce your overall body fat, which means a lot of cardio, along with strength training for much quicker results. Eventually, the fruits of your labor should start becoming apparent. One pound of muscle weighs the same as a pound of fat. Muscle is more dense and compact but the body fat is more “fluffy”. Muscles take up less space in your body, so your body weight may go up as you add compact and tight muscle mass.
The truth is that low intensity exercise burns fewer calories. To achieve the same benefits of a high intensity workout, you are going to have to exercise longer. So, if you’re going easy with your exercise, your’re going to have to exercise longer! It’s important to focus on exercise and fat weight control and not the percentage of exercise energy coming from fat but the total energy cost, or how many calories are burned during the activity. The faster you walk, run or step, the more calories you use per minute. Keep in mind, high-intensity exercise is difficult to sustain if you’re just returning or beginning to exercise, so you may not exercise very long at this level. It is more practical and safer to start out at a lower intensity and work your way up
little by little. During an exercise routine, muscle is used. This helps build muscle mass, and muscle tissue burns more calories — even when you’re at rest — than body fat. 10 pounds of muscle would burn 50 calories in a day spent at rest, while 10 pounds of fat would burn 20 calories. Metabolic Rate is the rate at which the body burns up calories. A body that consumes 2500 calories a day, and burns 2500 calories a day will stay at the same weight. A body consuming 2500 calories daily but burning only 2000 will gain weight at the rate of about 1lb a week.
How can you measure your ratio of body fat to lean muscle mass? You could try a bioelectrical impedance scale—or a body fat scale. These are available at most sporting goods stores. When you stand on the scale, a safe, low-level electrical signal passes through your body. You can then compute the percentage of body fat based on the resistance the signal encounters as it travels through your body. There’s also the body fat caliper. This is pretty accurate and easy to do. A personal trainer will use this caliper to take a few measurements. Through a formula and calculation, you can determine your body fat. Don’t Forget: Muscles need more calories a day, so the more muscles you have, the more calories you burn and the more weight loss you see!
