If you've ever felt lost in the sea of contradictory training and diet advice out there and you just want to know once and for all what works and what doesn't--what's scientifically true and what's false--when it comes to building muscle and getting ripped, then you need to read this book.
Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?
"I have bad genetics--I'm a 'hardgainer.'"
"You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack."
"When doing cardio, you want your heart rate in the 'fat burning zone.'"
"You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before your body starts burning fat."
"Don't eat at night if you want to lose weight."
"Steroids make you look great."
"I'm overweight because I have a slow metabolism."
You've probably heard one or more of these statements before, and the sad truth is lies like these have ruined many people's fitness ambitions. There are many, many more.
Thanks to the overwhelming amount of fitness pseudo-science and lies being pushed on us every day by bogus magazines and self-styled "gurus," it's becoming harder and harder to get in shape.
Muscle Myths was written to debunk the most commonplace and harmful gimmicks, fads, myths, and misinformation in the health and fitness industry.
Here are just some of the things you'll learn in this book:

-prstapleton (Amazon Verified Purchase)
"It's always great to have so many concerns and claims laid to rest and it's really quite liberating to find a resource that actually backs up the text with credible research rather than just echoing what a distant blogger also said."
-Gabe (Amazon Verified Purchase)
"Everyone should read this book before they embark on their fitness/weight loss campaign, because chances are that half of what you are doing is a waste of your time, and some of what you are doing is even counter-productive."
