5 Workout Myths Busted by Les Mills Pump

Myth One:To lose weight fast, you need to diet and do a lot of aerobic exercise.

  • Fact: Traditional aerobic training only burns fat but if you combine it with weight training you get a double whammy effect. You shed fat and develop lean muscle at the same time, so you shape and tone faster! Aren’t you in the game to look and feel as good as possible? You’ll get the best results by lifting weights and watching what you eat. The Les Mills Get Lean Nutrition Guide and Shakeology will take care of your diet and nutrition.

Myth Two:The best way to burn a lot of fat and calories is through cardio workouts.

  • Fact: It’s true that cardio exercise burns a lot of calories, but with conventional aerobic training, you stop burning calories when you stop working out. That’s where LES MILLS PUMP is different. When you lift weights, you keep burning calories long after your workout has finished. It’s the proven EPOC effect (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption), which is a fancy way of saying LES MILLS PUMP helps you boost your metabolism and burn more calories.

Myth Three: Woman get bulky if they lift weights.

  • Fact: Ask any bodybuilder: If you want to get big, you have to lift big and eat big, using low reps and heavy weights. LES MILLS PUMP doesn’t use big weight loads. THE REP EFFECT is based on high repetition with low weights to maximize strength without overbuilding the muscles. Muscle is critical in helping boost the metabolism to maximize fat loss. That’s why lifting weights is crucial to our body transformation. However, you don’t have to get “bodybuilder big” to repeat the benefits.

And truthfully, the vast majority of women simply don’t have enough of the male hormone testosterone to get big muscles.

Myth Four: Gym machines are better for strength training than free weights or barbells.

  • Fact: Fancy gym equipment may be comfortable and sparkle like shiny bling-bling, but as far as performance goes, machines simply isolate the muscle, so you’re not getting any combined synergy from all that effort. When you use barbell weights, as you do with LES MILLS PUMP, you use all your body’s muscles to stabilize–so you’re exercising not just the muscle that’s lifting the weight, but the surrounding muscles, as well as your core and abs. That takes energy (aka fat). LES MILLS PUMP is designed to get you using more muscles at once—which means a quicker path to results.

Myth Five: Women and men need to train differently.

  • Fact: There’s absolutely no reason why women and men can’t train the same way to reach their body transformation goals and get leans and strong. Women can do LES MILLS PUMP to reshape and sculpt their bodies. And men can use LES MILLS PUMP to build a strong, athletic, muscular look. Men and women have different levels of the hormones that are responsible for muscle growth. The basics of weight training—like squats, lunges, curls and dead lifts—are some of the best exercises for everyone. LES MILLS PUMP will help both men and women reach their physique goals.
