When you are working out to have a very tone muscles and you heard a lot of myths on building muscles, it can affect your performance because you become unfocused due to being conscious thinking about those myths.

Exercise can do a lot better to the quality of your health but it does not mean that it can treat all kinds of diseases.

Keep in mind that exercises can help you to prevent the risk of developing joint disease, diabetes, heart attack and other ailments but it cannot cure all the diseases.
