Is it possible to form a workout plan that builds both muscle mass and muscle toning?

I want to build a lot of muscle but develop a six-pack/beach body as well. I can't afford a personal trainer or find any reputable information. Are there any recommended websites for creating personal work out plans?

  1. Building muscle and toning are very different. In order to build muscle, you need to turn fat into muscle. Try a high protein, low carb diet complemented by a weight lifting regiment with higher weight (be careful not to over-do it thought!) and lower reps.

    To tone, you can do the inverse (lower weight with more reps) or you can do dip exercises on parallel bars. I prefer dips since I'm using my own body weight as resistance.

    Here are some resources on dips:

    And here is the dip bar I own:

    I like this one because of its portability and ease of use.

    Hope this was helpful!

    There is no such thing as muscle toning. You just gain or loose muscle. Just go to bodybuilding.com it has tons of info for you.

    Best of luck
