Today I am going to talk about myths that circulate around building lean muscle. As we all know Genetics play a key role in building lean muscle, for some it will be harder than others.

Myths Around Building Lean Muscle –
– Many people believe that changing muscle shape is easily achievable, however this is also down to the genetics of the individual and different exercises will not alter the shape of the muscles.

– Almost everyone in the gym believes that by doing a lot more reps will make them more defined however this is not the case. More reps will most defiantly increase muscular endurance but will not make the “Shredded” look more achievable. For example if somebody was to do a simple Triceps pull down exercise and do 20 reps as apposed to 10-12 of a lower weight they would not achieve the best results possible.

– Another common myth is that all fats are bad and should be avoided at all costs, again this is not true, while many fats should be avoided like Subo in an dark alleyway, there are some fats that are essential to your diet.
