How to Avoid Common Fitness Traps

In Uncategorized by The Fit Rebel

Traps and snares abound in diet and exercise. These traps lure you into their jaws with promises of results and security, only to snap shut and limit your potential.

One of the most common traps is the cardio trap where you find yourself eating a lot because you workout, and you workout because you eat a lot. This creates a vicious cycle which exhausts your time and energy. It also makes you feel like you’re barely holding on as you struggle through each week to avoid weight gain. Both working out and eating creates stress that is relieved by the other half of the cycle. It can make you feel like you’re running around, yet going nowhere.
