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:

  • Chest ki line nahin aa rahi – quite common statement heard from generally the novices in the gym. But sometimes, even the guys working out for some time, ask such stupid doubts. Well, the line between your chest, is simply because of the size/mass of the chest. Bigger the chest, deeper is the gap between the two pectoral muscles; and deeper would be the line/gap.

stupid doubts

There is no special exercise, as many coaches suggest to get that line. No, pec dec flyes, dumbbell flyes, or cable crosses will not do anything much, unless your basic pectoral development is not there. And, for that focus on the best bang-of-the-buck movements i.e. heavy presses and dips, and add your flyes and crosses as supplementary movements.

It takes exactly what you are not giving your body, i.e. bloody hard work. The good old blood, sweat and guts. If you have the guts, you will have the glory. Otherwise, you better search for a factory only.

  • Bas sides/arms/hips/chest kam karni hai – ok, so do one thing, ask your trainer for a sandpaper/regmark paper, and start rubbing it on the problem areas. Rub it every day for 30 days, 20min each day. And I guarantee you the results. Sounds funny? Trust me some people would believe it and may even start doing it.

This is what is happening when you are performing the most worthless exercises in the gym, like side bends, to induce spot reduction. Repeatedly I have told in my videos that there is simply nothing called spot reduction. Fat gets reduced from the entire body. Focus on your overall workout and diet strategy, put in the much needed hard work and moreover have patience. Think, have you seen anyone with fat on the entire body, but nothing on the sides? Common sense is the most uncommon thing.

  • Mere ghar mein shaadi hai, ek mahine mein patla kr do – when I hear this statement, my next question is, “what’s your age?” Let’s say, its 30yrs. Now, it took you 30yrs to get in the condition you are in, and you want to rectify your mistakes, and get results in 30 days?

Rome was not built in a day. You can’t keep on doing stupidities, live a sedentary life, eat junk all day, party all night, do this for years; and expect to rectify all the wrongdoing in a week. That’s not how the body functions. Patience with persistent effort is the only key. Now, beware of people promising you such overnight magical transformations, as it is humanly impossible to happen.

Tell me truthfully, when you read “Lose 40kgs in 7 days” what was your first thought ?
