TONED BODY: MALE OR FEMALE

IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE depending on GENDER? ABSOLUTeLY NOT, THE GOAL IS THE SAME, the effort is the same and THE WAY IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME! AS MY FAVOURITE AUTHOR AND RESEARCHER OF FITNESS States: MEN OFTEN want TO LOOK 'SHARP' while WOMEN want TO look 'TONED'. 

 

BOTH desired LOOKS have one common denominator: FAT LOSS.  MOST MEN SEEM TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH GAIning AT LEAST SOME MUSCLE MASS when training, while MANY WOMEN UNFORTUNATELY THINK THEY WILL GET 'BULKY'.  here is a fact LADIES:  WOMEN HAVE SIGNIFIcAntLY LESS TESTOSTERONE THAN MEN.

 

SO SPECIFICALLY addressing WOMEN;  WHEN YOU are looking for ways tO TONE YOUR BODY, and achieve your body transformation YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT MUSCLE.  GAINING SOME MUSCLE MASS SHAPEs YOUR BODY, WHICH is equal TO TONING.  YOU CAN'T JUST GET THAT ROUNDNESS ON YOUR BODY WITHOUT BUILDING MUSCLE.  AND TO dO THAT, YOU NEED TO STIMULATE MUSCLE TISSUE WHICH Fortunately OR UNFORTUNATEly COMES FROM OUTside YOUR COMFORT ZONE, in the form of HEAVIER WEIGHT Exercises.  AND THE GOOD NEWS?  MORE MUSCLE LEADS TO FASTER METABOLISM AND MORE CALORIES BURNED WHILE RESTING.
