18 Exercise Myths πŸ‘Ž You Shouldn't Believe πŸ’£ for Girls Getting in Shape βš–οΈ ...


β€Œο»Ώβ€Œο»ΏOk y'all, there are a lot of exercise myths you shouldn't believe. Each of them is totally ridiculous and I would like to correct some of those misconceptions for you today. I've been working out for a long time. For me, it is a life style and one that I've been able to maintain for a long time.

Pre-pregnancy, I weighed 111 lbs. (I'm 5'2) and a lot of that was muscle. Once I got pregnant I put on 51 lbs. I had a high-risk pregnancy and exercising, even a little bit, was out of the question. The last month of my pregnancy was the worst because I was put on bed rest. When my son was born, I STRUGGLED to get the weight off. Breastfeeding helped a little bit but I didn't like how I looked or how I felt. I couldn't even fit into my clothes after I had my baby.

I decided to go back to my weight loss regime as soon as my doctor cleared me. I've worked my butt off (literally) and I look even BETTER than I did before baby. I'm toned, sculpted, and able to run 5 miles in 30 mins or less. I have a six-pack and I eat healthy. My body is so used to this regime that when I don't workout for a bit, I feel sick. I love the endorphins I get after I work out and I love the results. I love getting through a hard workout drenched in sweat. BUT with all of that said, there are A TON exercise myths you shouldn't believe and people fall for them all the time.

This is one of biggest exercise myths you shouldn't believe. NOPE, not true. You WILL Become STRONGER, but over time. Don't expect results within a couple of weeks or even a month. (It Took Me 2 months to begin seeing definition in my legs, glutes, and back (using the correct form of course).
