    Pretty much everyone that works in the fitness industry hates hearing the word "tone". It's very vague and doesn't really state any aims.
    What you should be aiming for is a performance target. Being able to run further or faster, do that yoga pose, carry your dad etc. all more realistic targets than being "toned".
    Ok, I'll try that, but there is no chance of me carrying my dad!

    Hi, does anyone know how to tone up and look great in less than a week? All replies and advice will be very much appreciated!
    I mean you'd be hard pressed to achieve it in a week.

    Best thing is to research some fitness routines, use youtube or whatever you please. Do simple exercises in your spare time (pressups,situps etc) and find your limits first.

    Follow them religiously and make sure to regulate your diet properly.

    Eat the right amount of carbs and protein. After all without the energy to workout you wont be doing yourself any good.

    Other than that just stick to certain exercises and work a good balance of cardio and muscle building.

    I know, but I'm willing to give toning up 100% effort, no matter how long it takes.

    I am limited by time...I guess it's not possible for me. I have work and my studies to consider.

    As I’ve said on another thread, bodyweight exercises (with some exceptions) will not be enough on theor own.

    Firstly, read the FAQ which is stickied on this sub-forum.

    Secondly, if you have the time to run with your dog for an hour a night, you have the time for the gym.

    I work 40+ hours a week (currently studying 2/3 hours a night on top so heading for 60 hours plus) and still manage to hit the gym regularly.
    So ‘studying’ is no excuse.

    You should join a gym and train consistently building yourself up. It will take a few months but you’ll notice the difference
