How can we tone muscle and lose weight at the same time (whole body)

21 Jun
Getting a toned physique is all about reducing your bodyfat levels. So focus on doing that with a clean diet and creating a daily caloric deficit. Also do resistance training using mainly multi-joint exercises which will help you maintain your existing muscle mass. Then when you are toned enough, start a muscle-building program. Good luck.

If you want bulk up on the muscles, use heavy weights, fewer reps.
But in your case since you want to tone your muscles,  I'd recommend lighter weights with more reps

  • Begin to perform exercises that specifically stress the muscles of the body part that you are trying to spot reduce.
  • you should include regularly scheduled fat-burning cardio sessions and intervals, such as the type of cardio modes discussed in the Get-Fit Guy article “Which Exercise Machine Burns the Most Calories.” Aim for 3-4x per week, with 30-60 minutes per session.

Two most important things I focus on:
Burn more calories then you consume!
Consume plenty of protein!
Lift weights while also doing high intensity interval cardio such as sprints.
(For me, I'm trying to get 6 pack abs so losing the belly fat is a goal. Also, bulking up in other muscles is also a goal hence the protein intake.)
