  • If you had every single muscle in your body work together at the same time, you could lift about 50,000 pounds.
  • If you are not a regular exerciser, by the time you are 65 you may experience as much as an 80% decrease in your muscle strength.
  • Bodies are creatures of habit. The more you exercise, the more your body learns to burn fat rather than storing it.The best way to judge whether or not you are exercising at too high of an intensity is to see whether or not you can carry on a conversation. If you can't, you may want to back off of the intensity just a little until you can.
  • No wonder your feet hurt - running puts four to seven times your body weight in pressure on your feet.
  • Regular exercise is linked to better sex, because it can improve body image, energy, self-esteem and overall fitness.
  • Dancing is a terrific and fun form of exercise that can improve cardiovascular fitness just like any other more formal type of exercise.
  • If you're always in a bad mood, then getting fit just may help. Regular exercise can enhance mood and overall well-being.
  • The top three factors that determine whether or not you will stick to your exercise routine include having support, finding a workout that you like and knowing what you're doing. Your recipe for fitness success just may be working out with a buddy doing something you love after having received formal education on how to do it.
  • If you have an inactive spouse, chances are that you will be inactive, too.
  • In spite of what you may have read, there is no "best time to exercise." It turns out that the best time to exercise is when it works for you.
  • Women's top three recreational activities are walking, aerobics and working out, while men's top three are golf, basketball and walking.
  • Regular exercise can reduce the signs and symptoms of PMS.
  • Being dehydrated reduces exercise performance. Make sure you hydrate for peak performance during a workout.
  • Visualization can help to improve your workout. By visualizing yourself completing the exercise before you actually perform it, then you will be able to perform the exercise with more intensity and effectiveness.
  • Visualization of specific exercise actually causes the muscle synapses to fire as if you were performing the exercise. Does this mean that you can get all of your exercise in your mind? Not necessarily, but visualization can be a valuable part of your workout.
  • People who cross-train with a variety of exercise are more fit and less injury-prone than those who exercise using only one or two exercise modalities.

  • For every 25 pounds of excess weight, your body needs to pump blood through an extra 5,000 miles of blood vessels.
  • How much air do you breathe every hour? You breathe about 700 gallons of air.
  • What is your body's strongest muscle? It's your heart - which beats approximately 100,000 times per day. That means that in just 10 days, your heart beats one million times. If you do sustained, intense exercise daily, you'll reach a million even more quickly.
  • Your heart pumps about 74 gallons of blood in a single day - enough to fill up three gas tanks!
  • A normal sized heart weighs about the same amount as a softball.
  • All but 10 ounces of your brain, which weighs approximately three pounds, is water.
  • It takes 70 muscles to speak a single word.
  • Your body has more than 650 muscles.
  • Blood circulates through your body very quickly. The average time it takes for your blood to make the entire circuit is 23 seconds.

Fitness Facts
  1. Carbohydrates, protein, fat, and alcohol have 4, 4, 9, and 7 calories per gram respectively.
  2. It takes a 3500 calorie deficit to lose 1 pound.
  3. Insulin and growth hormone have an inverse relationship.
  4. The average person can store 500 grams of glycogen.
  5. Only fat and protein are essential macronutrients – carbohydrates aren’t.
  6. Muscle glycogen is about 3 parts water to 1 part glucose.
  7. You burn more calories during the 23 hours you don’t exercise than the 1 hour you do.
  8. You don’t need to do cardio to lose weight.
  9. The fat burning zone does not burn more total fat calories – only a higher percentage of calories from fat.
  10. You’re never too old to do squats.
  11. Weight loss is not a physical challenge– it’s a mental one.
  12. The scale cannot measure body fat percentage. However, this $5 body fat caliper can.
  13. You can eat anything you want and still lose weight – but weight doesn’t always equal fat.
  14. You can’t target fat loss – fat loss is systemic.
  15. Muscle does not weigh more than fat – it’s just denser than it.
  16. 0 grams of fat on a label doesn’t always mean there’s no fat in the food product.
  17. Whole grain bread is still a processed food – pick one that has few ingredients.
  18. Eating healthy is not more expensive than a junk food diet.
  19. You can’t calculate body fat percentage from height and weight alone – you need to physically measure it.
  20. You can get glucose from both protein and glycerol – not just carbohydrates.
  21. Just because a box says “whole grain” on it, it doesn’t make it healthy.
  22. You should never attempt weight loss at the expense of your health.
  23. Being vegetarian doesn’t just mean you don’t eat meat – it means you follow a plant-based diet.
  24. Workout times and negative side effects are positively correlated.
  25. Gym membership prices are negotiable.
  26. Cooking your food can both lower some nutrient content, and make some more bioavailable.
  27. There’s a high correlation between the fitness level of the people close to you, and your own physical fitness.
  28. It’s harder to put on 10 pounds of muscle than it is to lose 10 pounds of fat.
  29. Once an adult, fat cells can be created, but they cannot be lost – only shrunken.
  30. Eating at night does not make you fat – overeating does.
  31. You don’t need to do curls to get good biceps.
  32. Being skinny does not automatically mean you have a low body fat.
  33. The perimeter of the grocery store is where 90% of the healthy food is.
  34. If bad food is in the house, you’ll be more likely to eat it.
  35. Thyroid hormone output and exercise intensity are positively correlated.
  36. Healthy levels of testosterone are good for both men and women.

  45. The thermic effect of food (TEF) is highest for protein.
  46. Lactic acid is not the cause ofdelayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
  47. The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn at rest.
  48. Direct abdominal exercises are not necessary to get good abs.
  49. You can lose weight and still gain muscle; likewise, you can also gain weight while still losing fat.
  50. Consistency and patience are key to long term successful weight loss.
