  2. 2. Myth 1:Does strength training limit my flexibility? If strength training is done correctly itwill not limit your flexibility.The correct way is to have a goodstretch regime to go along withstrength training so you do notdecrease your flexibility.Stretching is very important to anykind of workout to decrease the risk ofinjuries.http://web.mit.edu/tkd/stretch/stretching_3.htmlhttp://community-micoach.adidas.com/community/support/en/help/support-guide/micoachsupportsite_guidewithtext_learn-more-about-strength-and-flexibility#.UWSypFd9zNU
  3. 3. Myth 2:Is 5 pounds a week a reasonable weight-loss goal? According to the CDC a healthy weekly weight loss is 1-2 pounds a week. The more steadily and gradually you lose weight the more likely you are to keep it off. This is the same with Muscle building. The more steadily you work out the more likely you are to keep your muscle.http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/losing_weight/
  4. 4. Myth 3: Do my muscles turn into fat if I don’t exercise them after a while? Your muscles will not turn into fat if you do not use them. Fat and muscles are two different things so muscle can not turn into fat. When you are working out your muscles are increasing and when you are not working out your fat is increasing.http://www.livestrong.com/article/449059-do-your-muscles-turn-to-fat-when-you-stop-weight-training/http://stronglifts.com
