Protect Yourself Against Fitness Gimmicks With “Muscle Myths”

July 15, 2012 | Madeleine G. Labitan

Muscle Myths

It's easy to get lost in the thicket of information on the Internet and in magazines about America's top pop culture obsession: health and fitness. Hard work and healthy eating are basic essentials for a firm, sculpted body. However, it's easy to get led astray by contradictory and often false training and nutrition advice. If you're tired of harmful gimmicks, fads and myths, and you're ready for scientifically proven workout tips for building muscle and getting ripped, pick up Michael Matthews' book, Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making.

Matthews identifies and debunks 50 health and fitness fallacies, setting the record straight on common misconceptions that run rampant in the industry, including:

  • You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before your body starts burning fat.
  • You can't eat at night if you want to lose weight.
  • You're overweight because you have slow metabolism.

Matthews scientifically disproves these and other widely-held beliefs and provides accurate information on real, results-driven diet and workout routines.

Working out, eating healthy and getting in shape are hard enough on their own. Make them a little easier with Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making.

Pick up Muscle Myths on Amazon: $3.99 for a digital copy and $9.95 for the paperback.
