The good news is you can feel toned in just 60mins
Just do a 45 min weight training session and your muscles will be pumped
To look toned just requires consistency in clean eating and lifting weights
Now When I say toned I do not mean looking like a body builder
I am meaning Lean, Tight and Sexy Toned
No jiggle, no flab, no dimples and def no drooping
You can be really skinny and NOT toned
I call this “Skinny Fat”
A flabby skinny body is caused by a build up of fat in the body (more specifically a high percentage of fat) in the body.
You can be light on the scales and flabby due to a low muscle composition and high body fat composition.
Muscle weighs more then fat: less fat more muscle = tight and toned body.
See the girl who is 18% bodyfat- she weighs the same on the scales as the girl who is 25% bodyfat.
And the girl who is 18% bodyfat is a size 10 and the girl who is 25% bodyfat is a size 14- yet they both weigh the same on the scales….
What body would you prefer?
Strength training gives you a toned body
Strength training is the kind of training that reduces your body fat and transforms the look of your body from soft and spongy to toned and defined.
Programs that only contain cardio may eventually make your overall shape smaller but they won’t transform your shape.
Using Cardio Alone: – If your body shape is a pear it will just become a smaller pear.
If your body shape is an apple your body will only become a smaller apple.
Will I bulk up if I do strength training?
NO -NO -NO
This is one of the most common questions that I hear from the girls when it comes to strength training.
It is extremely difficult for women to gain muscle and look like those terrifying pictures of 80’s female body builders. To get this look the abuse of steroids, hours of specialised training each day (an entirely different training protocol) and huge amounts of food are required.
Nothing is going to tone your body faster than doing weights, and girls your body wont bulk up unless your calorie intake is out of control (and in that case you are going to bulk up without doing weights…if you know what I mean…)
See my client Jessika Below
Most of the training she did with me was strength training- and see how small and toned she was able to get. We did about 15% cardio and 85% strength training.
