Myths Debunked by Meagan Rodriguez - Part 3

Meagan Rodriguez is a Certified Personal Trainer and the CEO/President of Nu-U Fitness. Meagan has provided The MOG BLOG a nine part series on myths verses the truth about fitness.



Myth: If women train with weights, they will get bigger muscles like men.
Truth: Weight/resistance training helps women build long lean muscle not bulky muscle.


When women train with weights they completely change the way their bodies look. They don’t get bulky but leaner. If only women can understand that if they took the fat on their hips and thighs and replaced it with the same weight in muscle, then their thighs would be much smaller. This is because fat takes up 5 times as much space as muscle. Most of the time women don’t know that their body composition determines how they look; by building lean muscle you replace the fat on your body incredibly transforming your body into a leaner, more beautiful, healthy body. Women need to be more concerned about not having enough muscle on their bodies to maintain health. Remember strong muscles lead to strong bones; strong bones lead to NO OSTEOPOROSUS!

Myths Debunked by Meagan Rodriguez - Part 2

Meagan Rodriguez is a Certified Personal Trainer and the CEO/President of Nu-U Fitness. Meagan has provided The MOG BLOG a nine part series on myths verses the truth about fitness.




Myth: When you exercise it doesn’t matter what you eat.
Truth: When you exercise, it matters even more what you eat!


Like I said in Part 1, when you exercise, it matters even more what you eat. If you start working out and aren’t feeding your body the correct nutrients then you are exercising a nutrient-deficient body; which makes you worse off than a sedentary person eating the same things as you. You are also making your body more nutrient deficient the longer you continue to not give your body the proper nutrition and working out. It is simple, physically active people need more nutrients than sedentary people. I didn’t realize how important this was until I realized that even though I was working out to get the body I wanted I wasn’t feeding it properly, therefore I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted. So many people are victims of this myth, I was one of them for a long time and now I know better. This part is simple as well, without optimum levels of the nutrients your body needs, you are not going to get the results you are looking for. You have to accept the fact that optimal nutrition is just as important as exercise and then guess what… you will be one step closer to accomplishing your goal in a healthy manner.
