    1. Exercise will use up energy while you are actually moving and will also increase your resting metabolic rate. 2. High Intensity exercise will burn more calories and thus more fat than low intensity exercise. 3. The longer the duration of exercise, the greater the number of calories used. 4. There is no possible way to “spot reduce” fat. Fat is fluid in nature and is in a constant state of change. Working the muscle underneath an area of fat deposit has no relationship to the use of the fat from that area.

    I love the fitness myths. They seem silly to me but I know, many people are surprised by them.
