TOP 10 Fitness Myths – Busted! Updated on October 15, 2019 By William Clement 95 Comments By William Clement 95 Comments blackjohnny0 January 19, 2014 I can bet, that some of this countermyths explanations will be myths in future. 🙂 Reply Dominik So January 19, 2014 wow, no offense, but ur english pronunciation is really horrible :-), still good content and thumbs of for trying english in order to make the content understandable for more people Reply H4licarnassus January 19, 2014 Very nice vid there was a few things I didn't know in there Reply pdude1911 January 19, 2014 Very informative, thanks! Reply I Am January 19, 2014 #Realtalk Reply Zaid Zakaria January 19, 2014 its good to stretch your tight muscles before you start working out. e.g if youre doing push ups and you feel it most in your bicep and lats. it means you have very tight bicep and lats. so you have to stretch your bicep and lats before doing your push ups so when youre doing your push up , you can feel it in your tricep and chest. correct me if im wrong. newbie here Reply far0cry0freak January 19, 2014 Ich hätte da mal eine Frage, in letzter zeit beklagt sich jeder bei uns im Team über schmerzen am Ellenbogen um genauer zu sein etwas oberhalb des Musikantenknochen, besser kann ich es nicht beschreiben, meistens kommt es bei den muslce ups oder bei den ganz normalen Klimmzügen, mir würde mal gesagt, dass es ein Muskel sein soll der selten genutzt wird und deswegen wird der schnell überreizt, was wisst ihr drüber ? Danke im vorraus BTW gutes Video 🙂 Reply Brendon C January 19, 2014 I have learned recently about muscle hypertrophy. Eventually at some point if you want to keep growing muscle (if that is your goal) then added weights are needed. Your body is only so heavy. I knew about these myths so was happy to confirm them again at the start of a new semester. Reply martinhain January 19, 2014 Sven dein Englisch geht doch voll klar 🙂 Top Video, bis Mittwoch!

Keep up with the good job guys! Reply Jorel Byssainthe January 20, 2014 Great vid!!! Reply Cameron Stewart January 22, 2014 Thank you for posting this. Ever since I came across your channel (and a few others, e.g. FitnessFAQ) I have put all my effort into pursuing bodyweight fitness/calisthenics, but I have had to shed a lot of the weightlifting/bodybuilding fundamentals that were so ingrained in my mind from my past. This post helps to affirm my current approach. Reply Maximus Rex January 22, 2014 Sehr schön, weiter so! Reply CharlieManuelsTV January 23, 2014 Great video and insight. Of what materials are the poles you guys use made of? I live in Puerto Rico and would love to build a strength training spot for me and my family. How much will it cost me?Thanks in advance! Reply PrincessAloeVera January 24, 2014 lovin your channel! Reply Nikola Maslovaric January 25, 2014 Some Myths are bullshit 😛 Reply Anthony K January 25, 2014 How do you build a pull up bar like the one you can see in the second myth? Reply Cameron Stewart January 27, 2014 What are your thoughts on workout durations? Do you need to put in hours of training a day or can you make progress working on skills for an hour or so a day? Reply japboon January 27, 2014 Thanks for this vid. I must have watched it at least 3 times now. Reply antsice January 30, 2014 I have to give you props to your 1 arm push up man, i always wondered if it could be done with great form, yours is by far the best I've seen!

Love it!! Reply Tinmanjohn February 22, 2014 Sehr Gut vom New York! Reply Cesar Martinez February 24, 2014 omg realy helpful i have another question though. How many times can i train per day can i do my routine once in the morning and once again at night or the afternoon? And if i do is it bad for my muscles? hope you guys reply and thanks! 😀 Reply Anthony Fortino March 29, 2014 1:20 I disagree with #7. When you do high rep calisthenics you are burning more calories at one time, helping to tone out the body Reply Jonas Memoracion May 2, 2014 So how do you grow muscles? Reply Reuben Castain May 14, 2014 Sweet information guys Thanks for the video Reply sinanr86 May 27, 2014 Are you sure about the stretching? That it can actually cause injury, not prevent injuries. Reply Christian Gerhardt June 3, 2014 Tessastorone ha ha ha (funny pronunciation), however well done vid….. Gut gemacht echt geil danke. Reply KVS Gill June 15, 2014 Awesome video. Perfect one arm pushup! You guys are amazing. Thanks. Reply Jeremy June 30, 2014 You also have the opposite! I tend to sweat a lot when doing exercises but in my case this is not by any means to be interpreted as a sign of exhaustion. I believe it is just the way my body works to get rid of toxins. Thanks for the great video, guys! Reply Matthew Miskiewicz August 2, 2014 Great video, thank you! Reply Andrea Dobis October 6, 2014 Are we related Ole? Reply Andreas F December 12, 2014 Great video guys. But please find someone with less of an accent. The narration sounds horrible. Reply Markus Kaprio December 14, 2014 Well, I have to disagree on some of the myths about calories. If you eat less thank you consume, one will have not enough long carbs and HDL fat-level to maintain your anabolic level. By not having your calorie intake in proper form, you will "run to a wall" after a very short while and then you quit because you are hungry. No recovery (parasymphatic nervous system activation) is made and then you will just lose the muscle you´ve supposed to build. I have never in my life met a bodybuilder that get´s bigger muscles by eating less than he consumes, sorry. Always eat MORE than you consume or the body´s amino acids will deplete. Also the supercompensation of your body will not start to produce new cells to correlate the depleted ones you´ve lost in a training. Reply Vince Yutuc January 1, 2015 Number 2 is the myth I hate the most. People insist that I need weights, that I need a gym. I've been doing calisthenics for about a year and I like it, I'm getting strong. Reply חומס צ'יפס סלט April 25, 2015 Guys, do your warm up long 15-20 minutes.If you dont want to get injured !!! Reply Karan Soam August 12, 2015 i love callisthenics. <3 Reply Prenders145 September 24, 2015 But can you build muscle when you have a calorie deficit? Reply Deep Rasania November 21, 2015 really amazing Reply A Man December 13, 2015 Very concise and informative! Reply rodney adams December 20, 2015 on women thing . There are women body builders. if train a way eat more meat. they will bulk up. i also agree that if women do castectics docent mean there going to always look like body builder. there going look like girl gymst at olympics. Reply dean0o0o February 7, 2016 Thanks for the videos. I have been a fitness buff for a very long time and I am finding lots of truth and lots of useful information in your videos. Keep up the good work. Beautiful physique also. Thanks again. I'm glad to be taking something home after all this video watching. Reply Walker Firmin February 9, 2016 I don't think this video was optimally worded and I feel like some factors were left out or not correlated as accurately as they could be. I watched the video, took in the ideas and summarized and revised them to include some things that I thought should have been included1. Doing crunches or an machine will get rid of belly fatThis only accomplished through taking in our burning more calories than your body stores and pepper nutrition 2. You need to sweat to have an effective workoutThere are no correlations between seat and fitness, it is only a biological effect to cool your body 3. Running is counter productive to strength trainingThis is not true unless you run so much that you delete your calories and fat where your body will then eat on its own muscle4. Doing more reps will make you more definedWhile this may be true it is just a stimulus to and effect what actually causes more muscle definition is a low body fat percentage 5. Cardio is more important for fat loss than weight or strength trainingThe direct cause of fat lose is the amount of calories burned or taken in by what means of exercise and diet 6. If you don't feel like crap after a workout you didn't work out hard enoughWorkout to train smart not solely to train hardIf you workout in the way that is most efficient fit you then you have met your goal 7. Stretching before a workout is crucial to preventing injuryYes, stretching before a workout is very important to preventing injury but a proper warm up will work as well 8. You will be overtraining a muscle if you work it more than once a weekVolume, intensity, and time to repair are the factors you need to go by rather than an irrelevant weekly bases 9. Weight training is more effective than weightlessThis is very untrue and these two should not be compared as better or worse because they both have their strengths and faults 10. Women would become bulky doing weight trainingThis is not a good correlation to make because muscle is formed more by the presence of hormones such as testosterone along with genetics and the way each muscle group is trained Reply zaki Djemaoui March 28, 2016 Hii great video I have a little question when we have to do cardio?? I do it twice a week is it enough?? Reply Boris Stanic June 9, 2016 Hi, finally one serious and honest video on fitness! Maybe you should have mentioned the use of supplements and steroids and how people lie that they don't use any 🙂 Reply MAHAKALAXXXV July 12, 2016 men you guys are the best! thank you for the tips Reply jack hunt September 19, 2016 hi! can you guys make videos about correct execution of the exercise you guys do?please Reply Thiago Cordeiro da Silva September 19, 2016 You guys are great! Very informative videos with good quality. Keep doing this good job! Reply cliff vecera September 22, 2016 what if you have no limits Reply MrDeothor October 7, 2016 5th one about "feeling crap after wrokout"… I have some problems.. Cause.. In most times I don't feel different after hard wrokout.. It goes to the point were I'm kinda scared if my workout was even successful :/ I do have some muscle ache from time to time, but it usually sticks untill next workout (like 3 days of rest).. Meh It's so weird :S Reply johnnypraught February 12, 2017 great vid,please check out my Chanel Reply dark wolf March 7, 2017 Number 2 definitely makes me want to slap people across the head. I've gotten good ass results with calisthenics. I hate how all these self proclaimed experts try to bash these exercises. Unless you tried muscle ups, dips and chin ups on gymnastic rings; no one in hell is going to tell me that shit won't build muscle. I can't stress enough that in order to grow with calisthenics, focus on progressive overload, time under tension & variations to make them harder. Reply Adventure 360 March 10, 2017 Good video and spot on! Reply beatboxlike March 29, 2017 hey, könntet Ihr die Nr 5 vllt noch mal auf deutsch wiederholen bitte? 🙂 Reply The Couchpotato April 4, 2017 Is there a good formula how to calculate how many calories you burn? Reply UTK _M April 30, 2017 can stretching session can be done everyday or should it be done on alternate days so that muscles can get rest on alternate days Reply abdul kareem May 23, 2017 loved the sweating part. it was time somebody broke that myth Reply Kartik Srinivasan May 27, 2017 Thanks guys!! Cheers from india Reply Ariana Stewart June 7, 2017 sub Reply Anicool Singh August 30, 2017 make a video about effect of testosterone and muscle growth.. n how does sex effects it.. 🙂 Reply Mon Nugget October 10, 2017 What about where they say working out stunts hight growth? Reply Иван Ночной October 21, 2017 None of the myths was busted. Where is the proof? Reply Harman Jit singh May 9, 2018 Do u live in India?But I don't think so Reply Alexandru Iacob May 19, 2018 remeber,i don”t kill myself in every workout Reply Сергей Курятков July 6, 2018 When you are told something with the german accent, you are more likely to believe it!

Cool and precise videos👍🏼 Reply JEEVA THE FOLLOWER OF KUNG-FU & VEGAN October 5, 2018 Hear with head phones it is 3D audio Reply Mehul Patel January 5, 2019 👍🏻 Reply Amanda McAllister April 21, 2019 I like the way El Eggs says "testosterone". Reply El Floundero April 28, 2019 👍 why is everyone putting a thumbs up Reply Nandan Vaidya May 6, 2019 It is awesome to see the improvement throughout the years of the great blue shorts and your efforts to bring quality content to English speakers. Kudos to you guys Reply Bob Troti May 21, 2019 8. Is actually kind of true. Cardio interferes with adaptations from strength training. The more you are advanced and the more cardio volume you do, the more this effect is significative. Reply VidyVid June 16, 2019 About the last myth… Sure women cant get as big as men but they'll still build enough muscle to significantly lose their femininity due to physical appearance, like bigger waist to hip ratio, V shaped back, emphasized deltoids, wide shoulders, veiny arms etc. which are all masculine traits.
