The year has just started, and many people are ready to get their bodies in shape.
According to several reports, January and February are the most profitable months for gyms.
If you are one of those who enjoys going to the gym or are thinking of joining, then it is important that you have the right information so that you get the results you are looking for.
Many people take myths as facts and end up causing more damage to their health.

These include whether leg days are essential; do you need to consume protein 30 minutes after a workout; feeling pain while exercising is a sign that you are doing a great job; the more weights you lift, the more muscle you will build; you lose more kilos when running as opposed to when you are walking; isolation exercises are not beneficial; and you can binge on junk food, and train longer the next day.
