4 PHASES CYCLE FOR TONING TRAINING
PHASE 1
Movement of muscle groups and building exercise endurance
  • To start we put an emphasis on form, posture correction, and/or joint alignment deviations. 2 to 4 weeks usually.

  • PHASE 2
    Strength Development and Lifting Volume
  • During this phase the goal is to build dense muscle. Training will be more straight forward on performing a 2 Day Split such as: Day 1: Chest, Back, Triceps. Day 2: Legs, Shoulders, Biceps. It is highly recommended that moderate cardio workouts are added to this phase and it is most ideal/effective to do it immediately after a weight training session. For beginner- intermediates try two 30 minutes cardio sessions weekly. 4 to 6 weeks usually.

  • PHASE 3
    Shrink
  • After a good amount of muscle has been developed it usually expands the skin. Lean muscle expands dramatically with increased blood flow then shrinks during rest and non-activity. In order to achieve a toned look, skin needs to shrink! During this phase workouts will consist of mainly aerobic and high intensity exercise utilizing mainly body weight and minimum use of weights. 2 weeks only.

  • PHASE 4
    Sculpt and Endurance Volume
  • At this time, waistline, arms and leg circumferences should be low. Muscles will look flat and only pop out when flexed. Don`t worry. If this has been accomplished, it`s time to lift moderately heavy while utilizing Compound Super Sets. This could mean 3 exercises back to back within the same muscle group. 4 to 6 weeks.
