By now, we’re all aware of the importance of tone in any fitness routine, whether that’s for aesthetic or functional reasons.
Tone is often referred to as “a good, neutral tone.”
It is used to define what your body should tone to in order to feel better, more athletic, or in other ways.
Tone also determines how you look in clothing, so it’s essential that you tone down the parts of your body that are too bright.
But what exactly is tone?
In an article published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, researchers at The University of Queensland in Australia found that tone can actually be a function of the way you train your muscles.
Tone in terms of body composition and exercise performance has long been known to affect the body’s response to stress.
It’s also known to influence the amount of cortisol in the body, a hormone that plays a role in the process of stress.
The researchers wanted to see if tone was also related to muscle soreness, which is a common side effect of exercise.
Their experiment involved training subjects to lift weights for 20 minutes and then resting.
After they lifted the weights for the next 20 minutes, they were asked to touch their legs to their thighs for 30 seconds.
The subjects touched their thighs again to see how much tension they’d released.
After they’d lifted the weight for the 20-minute rest period, the researchers took the same 20-minutes of lifting, but they trained them to touch both their legs again for 30 minutes and waited until the muscles had completely recovered.
After the 30-minute training, they looked at the effects of tone on muscle sorenesses.
The researchers found that the tone of the skin tone was correlated with the amount and severity of soreness.
When the skin tones were tone, soreness was significantly lower, and less severe.
But the researchers weren’t sure why tone was linked to soreness after the initial 20 minutes of exercise; perhaps it’s related to the body adapting to the change in tone.
The research team hypothesized that the muscle sorering was the result of an overuse of the muscles that were tone.
And as the tone changes, the soreness decreases, so the muscle has to start producing more cortisol to counteract the increased stress.
This would explain why after 20 minutes exercise, the skin on the arms and legs was slightly toned compared to when the muscles were toneed.
The study also found that there was a link between tone and muscle soreting.
Tone was associated with muscle soreter in both arms and both legs, with more soreness in the arms, but less in the legs.
The authors theorize that the soreting is a response to the increased cortisol release.
The results suggest that tone is associated with increased cortisol production and muscle tension, so tone may help you train the muscles to release more cortisol.
So, tone may be linked to increased stress and increased cortisol levels.
But does tone really make a difference?
The researchers don’t think so.
“We hypothesize that tone may not be a significant factor in the increased body mass we observed in this study, as we observed an overall increase in the tone and soreness,” the researchers wrote.
So what should you tone?
The researchers concluded that tone does not correlate with soreness or muscle soreiness.
But it could be a good idea to tone your body before you go out and lift weights, or at least before you start exercising.
Tone could also help with stress, and it can help prevent fatigue, too.
