    I love this post! Very intelligent. I believe you and I have many similar views on fitness. My site tackles a lot of the same stuff – http://www.themoyermethod.com.
    How do you feel about using supersets and dropsets and compound sets for high intensity training?

    hey rusty, quite a bit on the comment here, but i honestly never thought of muscle tone in that way before.

    I may be a younger guy, but the info you provide is really good. I am heading out to hawaii in 2 weeks, so i am using your ” vacation-body-blueprint” I have currently been using it for the last week or so, and the results are just amazing. Many THANKS!

    The reason that some ignorant bodybuilder’s are attacking you is that you have subtly attacked them with the theme of your blog and in many of your posts. As a natural bodybuilder I was a little annoyed at some of your writing initially but when I took a closer look I saw your content was good and your marketing was brilliant. Bodybuilding has a bad image and the reasons are complicated but if you haven’t studied it’s origin and history you might be surprised. From my blog:

    Hey been following your advice and starting to see results on muscle definition, but i just wanted to ask a quick question. I’m 5ft 6 and weigh about 70 kg, I’m looking to lose muscle mass in my arms and pecs while maintaining strength and definition, become a bit leaner.

    Any advice on the most effective way to achieve this goal?

    Hey rusty, I’m looking to tone all of my muscles. I feel I am big enough, what is the best thing to do? 3×3? my 1RM for chest is about 185. I’m looking for more definition, and looks like cam gigandet. thanks

    Hey Rusty how many reps and set should I do? I was going for a 5×5 workout with all the core big lifts like deadlift and squats but I remember one of your video said that this only had muscles to the thigh and hip area and your body would just look the same.

    Hey Rusty you said to lift heavy to get great muscle tone right? So are you suggesting to use all compound lift? Or should I also add isolation exercise like shoulder raises? Should those be that same as the heavy lifts with low reps and sets?

    I have been reading many of the posts here and I find them helpful. I’m studying Psychology and I have an interest in Sport Psychology.

    Protein shakes with high carb/sugar, steroids… Guys in the gym I go to have tried it all. Most of the bodybuilder see me and they don’t like me much because i do 3-5 reps mostly. Others who are looking for the calvin klein model look respect me.

    I’m 6’4 and 178 pounds with very little body fat.

    The ones looking for the lean model look, after seeing that what I do DOES work, come ask me for tips (not the bodybuilders, oh no, the know it all) and I help them because all I know I’ve read from the CST book and Convict Conditioning and your blog. I can do 10 one-arm pushup reps on each arm and that is something bodybuilders HATE me for.

    What I’m trying to say is: don’t listen to them. All of us who have toned muscles know that what we’re doing is beneficial to our fitness and health (diet, HIIT and static hold exercises).

    We also know that we are attractive and natural (no anabolics plx), and we feel good about it. In the end, that is what matters.

    Keep doing your thing, your blog helps many people!

    In my working position I lead more than sedentary life; I am sitting at my pc all day. I can tell you about muscle tone, or lack of it. Although I am within my ideal weight range, my fitness and muscle tone is disgusting. That is until I began Yoga. Yoga provides the ability to build on your core strength, without strain. It also provides a healthy stimulus to the mind and therefore buildings on the healthy body health mind concept.

    I was unaware the term “muscle tone” was such a controversial issue. All of the professional personal trainers and fitness consultants I know have always used the term, and whether the bodybuilders like it or not, colloquially it is understood to mean a certain state of the muscles which very closely fits the more technical way you described. What is the preferred term of these individuals who object to “muscle tone?”

    It’s pretty crazy how much hate there is out there.

    Thanks for the post. You definitely know what you are talking about!

    Muscle tone is at least still a better term than fat tone! Right now I think that’s my biggest problem — I’m still working on getting the fat toned down (err, removed altogether)… at which point I’ll then think about toning the muscles!

    Muscle tone is definitely something that’s difficult to achieve. It takes lots of arduous work to sculpt the perfect body. Lord knows I wouldn’t be able to do it easily. :)

    “The term “muscle tone” or tonus describes an electrophysiological phenomenon, a measure of ionic flow across muscle cell membranes. It can be thought of as the muscle’s readiness to do anaerobic wort.”

    As much as homebrewing and weight lifting go well together, methinks “wort” is a typo.

    True muscle tone that you can see is only achievable with a low body fat percentage.

    Now so this is what you called a very controversial one. That’s going to be so perfect.

    It seems bodybuilding is full of homophobia despite the fact that tons and tons of bodybuilders are homosexual and bisexual. Not just a few but as many as there are heterosexual bodybuilders.

    It is somehow contradictory that it is usually said that many people who bodybuild do it because they want to overcome some insecurities of theirs yet those insecurities seem to be fueled by bodybuilding ever since most bodybuilders will act as sexist, mysogynist, homophobic people.
