You always take the easiest option
In all quality group fitness classes, your instructor will offer a variety of levels and modifications to make exercises a little easier or a little harder. For example, an instructor might start you with traditional squats with the option to bump it up to jump squats. If you’re brand new to a class, it’s more than OK to take the easiest option offered, but once you have a few classes under your belt, experiment with a few of the more challenging options. This will help you from plateauing so you’ll continue to see results. Here are 11 fitness myths you need to stop believing.
You always take the hardest option
Just like always taking the easy way out, it’s also a big mistake to always take the hardest option in group fitness classes. If you overdo it, you’re more likely to experience extreme soreness and injury and you might be forced into additional rest days. Yes, rest days are important, but if you are too sore or injured to move your body for multiple days per week, it could setback your weight-loss and fitness goals. These are the most common signs you’re working out too much.
