If you just want to tone then do you have to do cardio?

I'm slim but not very toned. Do I need to do cardio to tone my body up? Or should I just focus on strength training?

  • Muscle gives you tone, so build more muscle.

    Running burns fat, and since you're already slim that doesn't do anything to build your shape.

    • Half true, muscle yes. Running does not burn fat nearly as good as building muscle. And women can't get as muscular as men because of their high estrogen levels, so lifting weight would be the best option.
