No pain – no gain:
Facts and fallacies about exercise, fitness and training

Elmarie Terblanche, Stellenbosch University, South Africa

This seminar will deal with a number of popular issues in exercise and training that sometimes elicit very untrue and unscientific answers. For instance: Will 1000 sit-ups per day give you the perfect six pack? Do energy drinks give you energy? Let’s investigate what are facts and what are fallacies!
