That tone youโ€™re wanting to see is simply a combination of muscle development and then low enough body fat levels to reveal those muscles youโ€™ve grown. โฃ

โฃ
1๏ธโƒฃFollow a well-designed fitness program. No more instagram swipe workouts, mix & matching at home workouts, or workouts you see influencers sharing. While they might give you some great ideas, there is no progression, often too much variety, and over time, wonโ€™t lead to the results you want.โฃ
โฃ
2๏ธโƒฃPrioritize your strength training over your cardio, and also pay attention to your recovery. Cardio matters very little when it comes to building muscles. The key is not only prioritizing lifting, but also giving your body enough time to recover from your workouts and grow back stronger. Be sure your program includes plenty of rest, active recovery, mobility, & stability to keep your body healthy and injury free. Also remember recovery happens from quality sleep, minimizing physical and psychological stressors, and the quality of the food youโ€™re eating. โฃ
โฃ
3๏ธโƒฃNUTRITION. One of the keys to building muscle is fueling your body with ENOUGH fuel, especially protein, recovering well with QUALITY food, and then eventually eating within a deficit to reveal your hard earned muscles. Keep in mind this is going to take time, patience, & consistency and will likely involve phases of eating more & eating less. โฃ

While it may seem complicated, toning really can be that simple BUT the problem is we usually give up before we get there. ๐˜›๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ, ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ตโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ. โฃ
