Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making

Muscle Myths

If you’ve ever felt lost in the sea of contradictory training and diet advice out there and you just want to know once and for all what works and what doesn’t—what’s scientifically true and what’s false—when it comes to building muscle and getting ripped, then you need to read this book.

Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?

“I have bad genetics—I’m a ‘hardgainer.’”

“You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack.”

“When doing cardio, you want your heart rate in the ‘fat burning zone.’”

“You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before your body starts burning fat.”

“Don’t eat at night if you want to lose weight.”

“Steroids make you look great.”

“I’m overweight because I have a slow metabolism.”

You’ve probably heard one or more of these statements before, and the sad truth is lies like these have ruined many people’s fitness ambitions. There are many, many more.

Thanks to the overwhelming amount of fitness pseudo-science and lies being pushed on us every day by bogus magazines and self-styled “gurus,” it’s becoming harder and harder to get in shape.

Intriguing Prop Bets for The Open Championship

Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite for the 2019 Open Championship, but bookies are offering a lot of ways to wager on the season's fourth major.
 
The cyber-gaming site, SportsBetting.ag (www.sportsbetting.ag), has posted a host of odds and prop bets for the British Open.
 
People can wager on the length of the final shot, flagsticks, course records, under-par finishes, cut lines and of course, Tiger Woods.
 
McIlroy dropped to as low as a 13/2 (+650) favorite earlier this week, but his odds are currently 8/1. The top 20 players on the odds board are:
 
Rory McIlroy (8/1), Brooks Koepka (10/1), Jon Rahm (14/1), Dustin Johnson (16/1), Tiger Woods (18/1), Justin Rose (20/1), Francesco Molinari (25/1), Tommy Fleetwood (25/1), Xander Schauffele (25/1), Adam Scott (28/1), Henrik Stenson (28/1), Justin Thomas (28/1), Patrick Cantlay (28/1), Rickie Fowler (28/1), Bryson DeChambeau (33/1), Hideki Matsuyama (33/1), Jason Day (33/1), Jordan Spieth (33/1), Matt Kuchar (33/1), Louis Oosthuizen (40/1), Matt Wallace (40/1), Paul Casey (40/1).
