Muscle Facts: How To Get Toned Muscles

One of the biggest confidence boosters is feeling good and strong in your body. The way to do this is through getting your muscles to be stronger, firmed, and more toned. But how do you get toned muscles? In order to understand how to do this, you first need to understand some facts about our muscles. 

What is muscle tone?

According to a study by Alfonse T Masi and John Charles Hannon, Human Resting Muscle Tone (HMRT), muscle tone is the “passive tonus or tension of skeletal muscle.” HRMT is the passive muscle tension that allows us to have posture, stability, and balance. Normal passive muscle tone helps you keep a relaxed standing posture with minimal fatigue, with passive meaning that you do not have to actively think about doing it.

A key point about muscle tone is its functionality: muscle tone maintains muscle contraction that helps our reflexes, posture, balance, and control over proper function of the body.

How To Get Toned Muscles

So now we understand the function of muscle tone, and we also understand the aesthetic appeal to have toned muscles. It makes you look active, helps your strength, and enhances your confidence. 

To tone your muscles they must contract, which is what exercise does. An easier way to get targeted muscle toning results is with CoolTone!
