And on the subject of dates, flu season is approaching. If you're feeling under the weather, it's okay to take a rest day. It's healthier for you and the whole Sync community.

4 Fitness Myths

I’ve got to warn you, there are myths still going around about strength training.

The truth is that strength training is one of the absolute best things you can do for your health and appearance.

If you’ve fallen for these 4 myths then you’re missing out on tremendous potential results.

It’s a Myth…that Strength Training Doesn’t Burn Fat

On the contrary, muscle mass is your number one ally against fat gains.

A pound of muscle burns 10-20 calories each day, while you’re just living and breathing. Regular strength training helps you increase your muscle mass as well as preserve existing muscle mass, turning you into a fat burning machine.

It’s a Myth…that Lifting Weights Makes You Bulk Up

Yes, strength training increases the amount of muscle on your body. And sure, you can use lifting weight to bulk-up; but you can also use it to tone-up and slim down. 

Including strength training and weights as a part of a broader, balanced workout, is an excellent tool for helping to sculpt the muscle that's already on you.

It’s a Myth…that Strength Training is Only For Young People

Ha, that’s a used-up excuse that senior citizens across the globe have shattered.

Adults of all ages have much to gain from a regular weight lifting routine. Improved balance and coordination, better strength and flexibility, and a decreased risk of osteoporosis are just the beginning.

It’s a Myth…that Light Weights and High Reps Tone Best

This myth, popularized in the 90’s, that very high repetitions of very light weights would result in a toned physique, has become outdated. These high repetitions will increase your muscular endurance but will not add strength or tone.

We now know that in order to truly challenge your muscles, a variety of weight and repetitions is best. Sync's trainers will sort out the repetition ranges; you just push your muscles with each set and each exercise.

Including strength training as a part of your fitness routine is a big boost to achieving a fit and healthy body.

What you need
Serves 4

¼ cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 Tablespoon olive oil, divided
4 (5-oz) salmon fillets
2 zucchini, sliced into half moons
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 poblano pepper, thinly sliced

For the Creamy Mustard Sauce

2 Tablespoons coconut cream
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh chives, minced

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 large rimmed baking pans with olive oil. Arrange the salmon fillets on one of the pans and generously season with salt and pepper.

2. In a small bowl combine the lime juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Pour half of the spice mixture over the tops of the salmon fillets.

3. In a medium bowl toss the zucchini, bell peppers, poblano pepper and red onion with the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil and with the remaining spice mixture. Spread the veggies over the remaining pan and generously season with salt and pepper.
