How To Tone Your Muscles
If you are wanting to look great, but your idea of "looking great" does not include "having huge muscles," what you are probably looking for is a way by which you can tone your muscles and cause them to look lean and trim; this is not especially difficult to do, but as is the case with any form of "working out," you will want to make sure you know what you are doing in order to achieve your desired results. If you were looking to build muscle, you would want to work out with heavy weight, and would want to give each group of muscles a couple days of rest before you worked them out again; naturally, you will be looking to do the opposite if you are wanting to trim up your muscles - working out consistently, with light weight that allows you to do high reps. Another thing that will go a long way in helping you to trim up your muscles is for you to sporadically "shock" your muscles by flexing them; standing there and flexing your muscles might seem a bit silly, but when you do this, you will essentially be causing your body to do exactly what it does when you lift weights - and in such a way that your muscles will become tighter and leaner, giving you that look you desire. And one of the most important things to realize about gaining lean, trim muscles is that your muscles will not look the way you want them to look - no matter how often you work out - if you are not burning the fat that covers these muscles as well; train yourself to eat healthy, and to do workouts that burn fat, and it will be much easier for you to gain that look you are going for. It is not especially difficult to look the way you want to look; all you need is an understanding of what you should do, a bit of discipline, and a bit of patience, and you will find that you are starting to look the way you want to look!
