Because “Fit” is the new “Skinny”
Hey everyone! Welcome to another “Weekly Workout Plan” here on Tone-and-Tighten.com. Some of the most-asked questions here on my site go something like this: “How can I increase definition in my _____?” “How can I sculpt my ____?” Or even “I want to tone my ____. Do you have workouts that can do that?” My answer to all of these questions is – you bet I can help you out!
Because this site is about a lot more than simply losing weight and getting thinner. This site is all about “Toning” muscle and “Tightening” areas in which you would like to see a little more definition.
So today I wanted to share with you 5 of my favorite at-home workouts to increase muscle definition. We’ll talk about everywhere from your arms and butt to your legs and core… and we’ll do it starting right now!
So here’s the key with muscle definition in any area we may be talking about – you have to be strength training. It’s amazing how many people write to me frustrated and upset with their weight loss/fitness efforts who are missing this one key element.
In order to boost your metabolism, lose more weight, and ultimately see more definition in your muscles – you have to be resistance training. I don’t care if it’s dumbbells, resistance bands, or bodyweight only – you need to perform exercises against resistance! Especially you ladies – don’t worry about “getting big” and “bulking up”; if done correctly resistance training is an integral part in helping you tone and tighten some of your biggest problem areas.
Want to get in better shape but aren’t too sure where to start?
I’ve got your solution.

Plus many more! Regular strength training will help you to improve your ability to perform daily tasks. Your endurance, mood, and fitness will increase and so will your health.
Types of Resistance Training
There are many types of exercise that count as resistance training. It can include free weights, medicine balls, weight machines, resistance bands, suspension equipment, or your own body weight. Each can give you a great workout to help you build strength, tone your muscles, and improve your health.
