MYTH MONDAY: HOW TO TONE UP

Let’s clear this myth up straight away, there is no such thing as toning a muscle! The firming-up or toning is due to an increase in muscle tissue as well as a low enough body fat percentage to see the definition and shape of the muscles and get rid of the “jiggle”.

Muscles do not go from soft to hard or hard to soft—they either shrink or grow in size. Muscles themselves do not “firm-up” or “tone”. They appear “toned” or defined due to a decrease in body fat. That’s it!

So save yourself the time and effort and stop doing crazy light exercises with crazy high repetitions thinking that’s the way to tone a muscle, it’s not! In fact it probably won’t do anything at all!
