Are your muscles flabby, or maybe
just not what they used to be? Toned muscles are important
for several reasons..
1. Toned muscles send your metabolism
the roof! They have a tremendous affect
on your basal metabolic rate (BMR), causing you to
burn more calories 24 hours a day!
2. Toned muscles are stronger
muscles. Strength gives you confidence and makes daily
3. Toned muscles improve your
posture and help you to avoid injuries!
4. Toned muscles look great!
Toning your muscles becomes much easier to achieve if
you avoid one common mistake. My estimate is that over
80% of people who are weight training for muscle tone
make this mistake. This causes their efforts to be much
less effective and perhaps almost useless.
The mistake is in using
a weight that is too light to challenge your muscle.
You should choose a weight for each exercise you do
based upon being able to do 12 repetitions with that
weight.. and being near failure at that 12th repetition.If
you could continue and do 15 or more reps with that
weight, then it's too light. Conversely, if you can't
perform 12 reps with *good technique*, then the weight's
If you'll look around a gym at
people "pumpin' iron", you'll see many of
them just going through the motions with very little
effort. That won't work! Our muscles need to be challenged.
They need to be pushed to their limit. That's what
they respond to and that's how they become toned.
If you're using the appropriate weight for your weight
training exercises, and you're using good technique,
you can expect to begin seeing results within six
to eight weeks. Start pumpin'!
