Working out-

The best way to stay in shape is to do physical activity at least 3 times a week for an hour each time. There are several different workouts one can do, but the main idea is to use both weight training along with cardio to elevate your heart rate. Don't be afraid to sweat! That is required to burn calories and reduce body fat.

As a general rule during your workout if you wish to gain mass in size use heavy weights for low reps. If you are looking to tone your muscle but not gain much size use light weight for higher reps. A rep is one complete range of motion of a particular excercise. A group of reps done back to back are called a set. For mass building workouts shoot for 6-10 reps of 3-5 sets. Toning workouts will be more like 15-20 reps for 3-5 sets.
