    welcome to the board lee

    john

    tone up is a term used in the media to create an illusion of having tight, frim skin with musclar definition similar to that of athletes. this is created by dieting, weight training and cardio opposed to the medias view of toning exercises, bums and tums classes and living off slim fast shakes.

    you cannot tone a muscle, you simply acquire a toned look after combining the 3 factors listed above over a sustained period of time.the notion of 100 reps to cvreate this illusion is merely media hype and a factuall incorrect

    toned people are generally aesthetically pleasing to the masses and display minimal size unlike a bodybuilder and most 15-16 year old girls think a toned boy is huge as they can see his muscles when in fact he is often 100lb p155 wet through. put his shirt on an he will dissapear.

    so
    lowish bodyfat
    medium low muscular size
    =
    some defintion

    so they are neither ripped or huge

    IMO a toned ohysique suits a lady, mass or ripped to shreads suits a guy

    all IMO of course

    ok refer to the newbie thread below

    the honeymoon period detailed in there will enable you to do both at the same time. so small muscle gains can be made whilst fat loss occurs

    this period can last for 6 months or so then periodization is required

    so read the link

    post your diet for help in the diet forum and have a look in the cardio section for advice there
