Can I just tone my stomach and arms?

3 Sep

Q) How can I get rid of the fat on my stomach, arms, lower back etc and replace it with toned muscle?

A) First, we have to realize that muscle and fat are two completely different tissues.

  • To loose fat in a particular area you must decrease overall body fat by taking in fewer calories then you burn (loosing weight)
  • To replace that fat you must overload the muscle with resistance activity. Depending on the type of resistance you choose will determine the type of muscle that is developed.


The more muscle cells you have the more calories you will burn, if your goal is to tone up then getting in your resistance training while lowering calories will give you the best bang for your buck
