With summer underway, toning up your body is a great way to slip into your new swimwear or holiday gear. Here are some methods of quickly increasing muscle and definition.

Use the Right Supplements

There's no shame in using supplements to help with your energy, brain function, and protein structure. However, it can be hard to get all you need, even from the best diet. So supplements offer a great way to get the required vitamins and minerals. Some of the most helpful when working out include B, C, and D. As well as magnesium and zinc. Fresh fruit and vegetables are bursting with these. But supplements are a great help, especially in the morning. Steroids in bodybuilding are also nothing new and can be a great help if you use them wisely and safely.

Vary Your Exercises

All too often, gym goers focus on one exercise they enjoy. While there's nothing wrong with that, it's not the most efficient way to tone up or lose weight. For the quickest and best way to tone and define your body, it's essential that you mix it up a little, so your entire body gets whatnot needs. And you don't need to train each day strenuously either. Perhaps cardio on Monday, body-defining workouts on Wednesday, and then finish the week with yoga on Fridays. But, of course, you should still walk, jog or cycle on the days in between for faster weight loss.

Do Everything Manually when Toning Up Your Body

It's no good trying to lose weight and shape your body if you aren't going to use your muscles in everyday life. You must commit 100% by doing everything manually. This means no more elevators. You must take the stairs. Don't drive anywhere that's considered walking distance. And get off the bus a few stops early if you use public transport. If walking is permitted, then do it. If you work within three or four miles of your home, walk or jog to work. It's not that far. You will lose around 450 calories if you walk, jog or run this distance, which is pretty straightforward.

Commit at Least 20 Minutes Per Day

When exercising with a goal, you need to commit. Fortunately, just 20 minutes per day is enough to tone up and lose weight quickly and efficiently. Even if you have a bus lifestyle, 20 minutes isn't too much to spare. Additionally, it's time away from the stresses of home and your job, which is excellent for your mental health. Finally, the effects of exercise have been shown to get a boost from doing it somewhere you like too. For example, your favorite jogging trail, park, or even a dedicated exercise room in your home with all the comforts you need.

Do Classic Toning Training

Any exercise will contribute to toning your body. But there are some that can help you sculpt specific parts of your body that you might want to tone the most. These include the abs, thighs, and butt. Running is an excellent all-rounder that works the legs, butt, and arms. Yet, for toning your abs, there's only one option, and that's stomach crunches. Yes, they're hard, but they will get easier, and you will want to do them more when you see results. Finally, lunges are fantastic for toning the muscles in your legs and butt. Aim for three sets of 12 for each method.


It can be tricky to know what to do when toning up your body. Some of the fastest ways include working with supplements, walking everywhere, and doing classic toning exercises like squats.
