Good luck! 0 Reply j83d 10 years ago Toning, shredding, or ripping up involves two physiological changes: the increase in muscle mass, and the shrinkage of fat cells. Resistance training with free weights, machines, or body weight at a high repetition/set will increase muscle mass. Aerobic endurance cross training will burn fat by using fat as a source of energy. So, resistance training coupled with at least 45 minutes of some form of cardio training at least three times a week will yeild a more toned body. To answer your question specifically, I would need to know the intensity level and duration of tai chi and kickboxing. Without that knowledge, I would rate the exercises as follows: 1. Kickboxing – most pontential to tone up 2. Tai Chi – most pontential to develop flexibility and power 3. Yoga – most potential to develop flexibility and balance It should be noted that women naturally have a higher body fat percentage than men, and adverse side effects can occur with a body fat percentage lower than approximately 15%. 0 Reply arc a 10 years ago Dear Jenny, In order to get toned fast the best way is to acquire the cense of humor.
