Hiya, girls. I do know precisely why you’re right here.
You desire a firming exercise plan that’s comprised of the most effective firming workouts and designed particularly for the 2 important targets most girls have:
- To get toned, outlined and lean.
- To keep away from getting large, cumbersome and manly.
Does that sound about proper? I knew it will, and that’s the reason I’ve created a very FREE exercise for this very goal.
Let’s get all the way down to it…
How To Get Toned (With out Getting Cumbersome)
Everybody is aware of that the everyday girl performing some type of weight coaching is doing it for the aim of constructing “lean muscle” that makes her physique look slim, toned, attractive and female.
The standard man, then again, weight trains for the aim of constructing “cumbersome muscle” that makes his physique look large, highly effective and masculine.
The query is, what are the load coaching variations that separate these two targets?
Effectively, I might actually write a complete ebook overlaying each minor distinction there may be, however, in all honesty, there may be one main distinction that ranks above all of them. It’s the key issue that issues essentially the most (BY FAR), and also you most likely already know what it’s…
Gentle Weight + Excessive Reps + Firming Workout routines = Tone
There it’s. There’s the massive “secret.” That’s the important thing to getting a toned physique.
Principally, I can sum up all of it up like this…
- Lifting mild weight for prime reps on the appropriate workouts builds the lean/toned muscle most girls need.
- Lifting heavy weight for low reps on the appropriate workouts builds the massive/cumbersome muscle most males need.
So long as you do what you’re imagined to be doing based mostly in your purpose, AND you keep away from what you want to be avoiding so that you don’t crossover into the other purpose… you’re going to get the outcomes you search.
With me thus far? Good.
The four Keys To An Efficient Firming Exercise
With all of that in thoughts, listed here are the four key elements to designing the best firming exercise potential…
- It must contain lifting mild weight solely.
Something too heavy will shortly construct cumbersome muscle, which you don’t need. For this reason heavy weight have to be prevented utterly, and light-weight weight have to be solely emphasised.
- It must contain excessive reps solely.
In case your rep ranges get too low, it is going to negatively impact the sort and texture of the muscle tissue you’re constructing. Because of this, low reps have to be prevented.
- It must contain the appropriate firming workouts.
There are tons of various dumbbell, barbell, machine and physique weight workouts for various targets, however a few of them are way more very best than others on the subject of firming.
- It wants to focus on the appropriate areas.
Whereas your exercise will goal your total physique, we undoubtedly need to place extra emphasis on the areas that matter most to ladies. For instance, the backs of the arms (aka “bat wings”), legs/thighs, butt, abdomen, and so forth.
Now that you simply’ve discovered what works, what doesn’t work and the confirmed science behind all of it, it’s time to lastly present you the exercise routine that places all of it collectively.
- Monday: Exercise A
- Tuesday: off
- Wednesday: Exercise B
- Thursday: off
- Friday: Exercise A
- Saturday: off
- Sunday: off
- Monday: Exercise B
- Tuesday: off
- Wednesday: Exercise A
- Thursday: off
- Friday: Exercise B
- Saturday: off
- Sunday: off
As you’ll be able to see, this plan entails three complete weight coaching days per week utilizing a full physique cut up, with two completely different full physique exercises – “A” and “B” – which you merely alternate between.
Your “off” days can both be used to relaxation and recuperate, or for doing limitless hours of cardio. Whichever you like.

This Is All Bullshit.
Um, so, yeah, about every part you simply learn…
It’s full bullshit. A joke from prime to backside.
And whereas a lot of you have been certainly in on the joke early on, I do know that fairly just a few of you might be questioning “Wait… what joke? This recommendation appears correct to me and is according to many of the suggestions I’ve seen for getting toned, and actually simply exercises for girls generally.”
Yeah, so, about all of that… it’s full bullshit, too.
Let me clarify…
The Reality About “Firming” And “Getting Cumbersome”
Listed below are the methods wherein we are able to change how our our bodies look. We will:
- Construct muscle.
- Lose muscle.
- Acquire fats.
- Lose fats.
And… that’s it.
However what about getting toned, you ask?
Effectively, right here’s what “tone” is.
It’s constructing a point of muscle (#1 on the record above) and dropping sufficient fats (#four on the record) in order that the muscle you’ve constructed turns into extra seen.
This, in a nutshell, is all “tone” is. Muscle – fats = tone.
However what about getting too cumbersome, you ask?
Effectively, right here’s what “bulkiness” is.
It’s while you both:
- A) Unintentionally construct extra muscle (#1) than you’d desire to have… one thing that’s fairly uncommon contemplating how painfully sluggish the real looking fee of muscle development is (sure, even underneath the absolute best circumstances the place an individual is purposely attempting to get as large and hulking as potential as quick as potential). For instance, the typical intermediate MAN would possibly acquire a whopping 1lb of muscle *per 30 days* and the typical intermediate girl would possibly acquire half that (particulars right here: How A lot Muscle Can You Acquire?).
- B) Acquire extra fats (#Three) than you’d desire to have, thereby overlaying your muscle mass and stopping you from wanting “toned” whereas concurrently making you look larger and thicker as a result of layers of fats on prime of layers of muscle tends to have that impact. This, by the way in which, is the most typical cause why a girl thinks she seems too “cumbersome.” It’s not as a result of she has an excessive amount of muscle, it’s as a result of she has an excessive amount of physique fats on prime of that muscle.
- C) Some mixture of each.
However then chances are you’ll marvel…
Aren’t There Totally different “Sorts” And “Textures” Of Muscle?
You may’t construct muscle that’s cumbersome, or lean, or toned, or sculpted, or female, or manly, or anything.
Muscle is muscle. You’re both constructing it, otherwise you’re not.
Now, positive, muscle can definitely seem otherwise on completely different folks based mostly on their genetics, physique sort, the quantity of it they’ve constructed, and the way a lot fats they do or would not have on prime of it.
And whereas this will likely create an phantasm of there being several types of muscle, the fact is that there aren’t. It’s all the identical factor. Further particulars right here: Lean vs Cumbersome vs Toned

What About Weight Coaching?
Doesn’t Sure Weight Coaching Make You Toned?
Don’t mild weights, excessive reps, and particular firming workouts make folks toned, sculpted, outlined, slim and female?
No, they don’t.
In truth, the kinds of foolish “firming exercises” that the majority ladies do which contain lifting (usually laughably) mild weights (e.g. 3lb pink dumbbells or one thing equally not-remotely-challenging) for prime reps (15, 20, 30, infinity… who is aware of) on magical “firming workouts” will neither construct muscle nor burn fats… subsequently serving no useful goal in anyway to the purpose of getting toned.
As an alternative, it simply causes ladies to waste their time.
And so the perpetuation of those myths about “firming” and unwarranted fears about getting “too cumbersome” proceed indefinitely, which then prevents increasingly ladies from doing what they really have to be doing to construct the toned physique they need. (Extra about what that’s in a minute.)

And the one factor that makes a girl look “manly” (at the least, by my definition) are steroids and numerous different medication. Which, by the way in which, are often utilized by the feminine bodybuilders and feminine athletes most girls level to as examples of the “too large and hulking” physique they’re scared to dying of getting.
Effectively, I’ve some excellent news. So long as you don’t use the identical medication/steroids these ladies did, you don’t have anything to fret about it. Hell, many males can’t get that large and hulking naturally (and we’re usually attempting as exhausting as we are able to to do it).
