    Great contribution.

    Only beef is your handle.

    Bump of another zombie thread

    I'm hoping to get some chiseling or sculpting in this week 😂. But I'll still call it toning because like a fine instrument, I want to be toned.

    I always kinda giggle at "toned", personally. This thread was an interesting read.

    I remember older ppl saying to me " you just want to be toned not muscular". I guess because I was a woman. And I just sort of scratched my head at that when I was very young. Now that I lift and some of those ppl still have that mindset I say flat out, I lift heavy because I like to. I like my muscle weather it's *toned* or not I don't care. I don't use that word myself, though. I am muscular. Period. 🤷🤷.

    Great thread. Thanks for reviving.

    I still get the occasional "what are good toning exercises?" and just bite my tongue so there's no long drawn out discussion. Thanks for reading.

    I see no harm in using the word 'tone' as a descriptor of results. It's legitimate term one can use. I've heard men use the term as well for themselves.

    Lol, if someone said to me "I'm liking my muscle tone!" I'd probably jump in the air and high five them for using "tone" correctly. :D

    You can either make a muscle stronger or make it grow but I am clueless as to how to tone it...🤷‍♂️

    You have definition. It's just not a super high degree. When people in the industry start calling you "shredded" or "ripped", they are describing a pretty low bodyfat degree of definition.
    If you have some definition, you can definitely see separation of muscle.

    Lol, for some reason this appeared on my FB this morning. What's really ironic is she says it works "arms" when the majority of movements directly affect the shoulder and rotator cuff. How in the hell does this woman claim to be a trainer and actually get away with it?
