You will need

  • Healthy diet
  • Aerobic exercise
  • Strength training
  • Water
  • Mulitivitamin
  • Rest

Step 1 Maintain a healthy diet Build muscle tone by maintaining a healthy diet. Eat lean protein, green vegetables, whole grains, and fruit. A healthy diet is just as important as exercise.

Step 2 Incorporate aerobic exercise Incorporate aerobic exercise 20 to 60 minutes at a time, four to five times a week, to burn fat and reveal muscle tone. Swimming, cycling, and yoga are great choices.

Step 3 Add strength training Add strength training to your workout three times a week. Studies show that people who want to lose weight and tone up should use heavier weights and fewer repetitions.

Step 4 Change your routine Change your workout routine to challenge and keep the muscles guessing.

Step 5 Hydrate with water Hydrate your body during and after a workout. Drinking water while you exercise allows the muscles to stay flexible which will help improve muscle tone.

Step 6 Take a multivitamin Take a multivitamin to help the body grow healthy tissues and metabolize proteins and fats.

Step 7 Take a day off Keep your body rejuvenated by taking a day off. Working out everyday will lead to muscle fatigue which can delay muscle growth and definition. Have a great workout.
