Fitness » There’s no such thing as toning a muscle

I don’t know who coined the phrase toning your muscles or training to tone your muscles. Every Time someone tells me they what to “tone” I always say “You can’t tone your muscles”.  I usually get this look of bewilderment like I said something sacrilegious.  The truth of the matter is you can build muscle, muscles can shrink (atrophy) they can get stronger or weaker in the most simplest terms.
