Myth: Strength training will cause a woman to get bulky.
Fact: Sonnalli explained that strength training will not give a woman bulky, masculine muscles “unless she is supplementing with testosterone and consuming far from calories than she is burning”.
Myth: You should not eat right after a workout.
Reality: It is crucial to eat after your workout as your body needs nutrients to heal your body and make it stronger. “Don’t deprive yourself,” she said.
Myth: You can jump right into training without working on your weak areas.
Reality: “It is imperative to strengthen our weaker areas in order to improve our overall strength and functional fitness,” the actor said.
Myth: You should only do cardio to lose weight.
Reality: While many believe that cardio exercises are enough to lose weight, it’s not true. “The best game plan is a combination of cardio and strength training, depending on your goals,” Sonnalli said.
