Use light weights for a lot of reps to tone your muscles. Cardio exercise is for fat burning. Lift heavy weights to get big muscles. These are common gym myths and while each is based on a modicum (thanks SAT prep) of fact the reality is how exercise actually changes your body is much more complex series of reactions involving hormones. On this rerun episode, originally recorded in December of 2017, Fabio Comana, a professor of exercise science and nutrition at San Diego State University, reviews the science of how exercise causes your body to produce the hormones that are responsible for making the changes you want to your body. Get ready for a deep dive into the science of exercise physiology on this episode of All About Fitness, the good news is that, unlike the students in Fabio's classes, you will NOT be tested on this information. Listen all of the way to the post-show wrap-up to learn how to apply the science to your own workouts.
