Default Weight Training Myths

Please add your bodybuilding and diet myths...here are some for starters:

...Eating at night makes you fat

...Situps equal 6 pack abs (spot reduction)

...Weight training reduces flexibility

...Muscle will turn into fat during a long layoff

...Women lifters will look like Arnold

...Eggs are bad for you

...Personal trainers know how to pack on muscle
