Toning is the process of losing fat and building muscle at the same time, to ultimately alter our body compositions, resulting in a leaner, more defined (or “toned”) look. Building muscle at the same time as losing weight, or “altering your body composition” is always going to be a great thing, as having more muscle mass has so many amazing benefits.
The path to burning the calories that leads to fat loss is not lined with non-stop cardio. While doing calorie-burning exercises will help you lose weight, you have another important ally to consider: strength training, or toning, exercises. Daily cardio, total body strength training, and a healthy diet are key to losing belly fat and keeping it off.
