Things you do not know about fitness can hurt you and interfere with the fitness goals. For a safer exercise with great results, forget everything you have heard about workout and go through this article to get your fitness facts straight.

Myth № 1: You can target the fat burn
Exercising can reduce your overall body fat and you can’t control where that fat will come from. In a new study published in one journal people completed a ten- week exercise program to train a single leg. Even though they only trained on a side, they lost about the same amount of body fat in the other leg and burned even more body fat above the waist.

Myth № 2: It is not a good idea to work out on an empty stomach
Your body burns much more fat when you hit the gym before you eat breakfast as claims a new study published in the journal of nutrition. Do not skimp just on water.

Myth № 3: No pain, no gain
A little pain is okay, but if you feel a sharp one anywhere, stop what you are doing and consult your doctor, as it can lead to the serious problems.
