Guys, Have you been training like a girl?
I’ve always found the fitness industry interesting. And spending a lot of time inside a gym like I have, meeting lots of fitness enthusiasts, you always get told lots of B.S.
It’s amazing how little people actually understand about how to change their body.
Take “toning” for example.
And yes, I did write it like that deliberately. You see, I don’t really consider “toning” a word that should ever be used by someone looking to get into shape. I’m sure you’ve heard it all before, probably even said it yourself.
It usually sounds something like this.
“Oh, I don’t want to get really big, I just want to get a bit more toned…”.
There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to look like Ronnie Coleman, I certainly don’t. But wanting to get “toned” is stupid, because there is no such thing as toning.
Why can’t they just say this in the first place!
If you want to increase your muscle mass and decrease your fat, you need to go about things in a systematic way.
Simply doing lots of repetitions with low weight will not make you “toned”.
This is a huge myth and for good reason.
I know gym instructors who tell clients to use higher reps and lower weights when looking to tone up.
No wonder people are frustrated with their results!
There are things you need to do in order to build muscle and there are things you need to do in order to burn fat. It’s as simple as that.
Unless you have superb genetics, chances are you’re going to find it hard to build muscle and burn fat at the same time.
This is because to gain weight, you need to eat more than you burn and to lose weight, you need to burn more than you lose.
Sure, at first, you may be able to gain some muscle as you lose fat, but eventually your body will adapt to its new situation and you’ll only be able to do one or the other at a time.
So I hope this has cleared up a couple of issues for you.
If I hear you ever mutter the word ‘toned’ inside a 5 mile radius of a gym, I’m going to bitchslap you.
So, I hope you now understand the difference between building muscle and losing fat.
