I get asked several times a day how to “tone up” so I thought I should explain what that is exactly and how to get it.
My understanding from what has been described to me, is that the “tone” that’s desired.. is when there is little to no cellulite, not much jiggle and a tight looking body.
If this is what you picture when you think of the word “tone”, then my understanding is correct.. And if it’s correct.. then you need to realize that tone is going to come from lower body fat with more muscle underneath to give that tight, non-jiggly look.
In other words, tone = muscle & lowered body fat. Remember though, it is NOT physically possible to spot-reduce body fat. In other words, you cannot JUST tone/reduce body fat on just your stomach or thighs or muffin top or any other area of your body… it happens systematically all over and the pattern in which it happens is determined in large part by genetics.
So in order to “tone”.. you need to build muscle and eat clean in order to increase muscle and lower overall body fat. Do this by eating clean and lifting weights. =)
