Hi Rebecca,

That would do the trick, but u need to increase the reps. if you are using light weights do 12-15 reps. :D . Hope you get tone soon. Have fun working out.

Isolation training is generally for increasing mass..... compound training (i.e. multiple body parts in a single session) is better for toning. And yes, as the other poster said, aim for more reps..

Concentrate on cardio ALOT but yes do pick up weights, as said in the previous posts, go for compound training.
Happy Toning :)

you should aim to compound movements as suggested. you can try decreasing your rest time between sets to get a tougher workout! alternatively; for cardio exercises; you should also try alternating the intensity; try going for a 20 min exercise alternating 30 sec high intensity and 30 sec low intensity

When you're able to do a full squat with 200 kg on your back, consider yourself toned. :wink:

isolation training is generally for toned. Compound training are for mass builder.( Multi joints movements, involve one or more than two muscles are compund training.) Multi body parts in a session are usually called full body workout.
Hope u get a better idea.

caster beh, you must be a local trainer, correct? I've not met but one or two locals who could even justify their PTC certification. Additionally, you are walking on very thin ice.

Before ending this with my recommendations, I figured I should probably mention the silly myth that “isolation exercises are for getting toned, lean and definedâ€Â
