I must have heard these statements thousands of times, if not directly then through some other source. But these are top 4 of the evergreen stupid doubts people have:
There is no special exercise, as many coaches suggest to get that line.

Some people are quite carefree, and […]
When someone embarks on a weight loss journey, they want to expedite the process, as much as possible. But there is no use of losing it fast, and gaining it all back. And this faster loss can happen only through short-term extreme methods, like very low-calorie diets, or extreme fad diets, excessive endurance exercises etc. […]
Not everyone needs a Pre-workout supplement. And I still stand by this statement of mine. But millions of people across the globe use a pre-workout supplement for various reasons, which I have already covered in my complete video series and the range of eBooks I wrote on the topic of pre-workout supplements, their complete research […]
