101 Fitness Myths is NOT another "6 minutes abs" or "drop 14 lbs in 30 days" book, nor does it follow the latest fitness fad, but it is a unique fitness book for everyone - whether you're new to the gym or have been working out religiously for years and are frustrated by lack of results. This book is about individual empowerment. You don't need an expensive personal trainer or fancy machines, just dedication, basic equipment, and the solid scientifically based information in this book. The book tackles such common fitness myths as: -Weight training to get big, cardio to get lean? -Are there cutting exercises? Bulking exercises? Do high reps burn more fat? -Do women need different exercises than men? Which supplement fights cellulite? -Are there any any supplements worth buying? -What is the best exercise for the abs? Hint: It is not the crunch. This is the book I wish I'd had when I began weight training twenty years ago. It would have saved me so much time and frustration.
