When you reach your desired size and weight and you want to get good definition do you simply cut while continuing to do the same routine or do you change to a longer lighter weight, higher rep, more active routine. If you do that, do you continue to eat or no.
he said tone......
The Gods taught us to forge Iron so that we would not be slaves-----old Germanic saying
buy a chin up bar, sell the arm curl bar---Roddy
reduce caloric intake
lift heavy with low reps
use words like: lean out, get ripped, drop body fat.
There is no such thing as toning. Doing lighter weight at higher reps will not tone. If you want to cut, you keep lifting heavy and just eat less.

what do you mean theress no such thing? Its a word, its just a description.
i think the advice that has been given is good.....lift heavy and reduce calories. I don't know what the big deal is about the word "tone". Obviously they all knew what you were talking about or else they couldn't have responded. It's just a descriptive word he choose to use...get over it!
tone..opps i said it! ... wuts the big deal about tone?
Lifting is my life
I am 15
@ 155 lbs
It's a bit out of place on a board devoted to moving tons of heavy-ass weight.
You know those forums for people who like to lift pink dumbbells? More appropriate there.
WTF?Why do so many people ignore the name of this site?Lets start a forum called "The Tone Zone"
Save the "toning" for Suzanne Sommers. Real men lift heavy-a** $h**!
A routine that is good for building muscle is also the best one to retain that muscle.
Pink dumbbells are for geriatric women in under water ballet classes.
It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
sorry but Ive noticed alot of the die hard strength guys on this site think everyone else wants to be like them...nope. At least half of the people on this site are doing it for looks and strength, not just strength. These people are doing bulking and cutting cycles cause they dont want the big ass gut.
