There is no real way to not gain weight, but the best way is to do a lot of cario work, treadmill, bikes, aerobics, etc. And use light weights with high reps. Meaning use a 10 pound instead of a 20 and do 15 of each excersise instead of 10. This will be the best way not to gain weight. But if you are healthy, it doesn't matter what you weight. unless you are concerned about making a specific weight for Wrestling,boxing ect, you should not concern yourself so much on the numbers, I would suggest throwing out the scale. You can go from 160 to 190 and look lighter and thinner at 190. as far as getting tone only you can work with weights, using low weight and high reps. for build muscle mass you would want to life a weigt light enough you can lift it at least 8 times and no more than 12 times in a set. for toning you want something you can life 20 to 25 times in a set. this will give you more of a tone look. throw out the scale and use a mirror and measuring tape if needed.

Do you gain weight after working out?

Yes and no. You look thinner because you are losing fat weight, but (depending on what kind of workout) you are gaining muscle weight.

But this weight gain should only be temporary because healthy muscle will burn the fat for fuel.

How do you recognize good muscle tone?

Good muscle tone can be recognized in several ways. Visually, good muscle tone can be recognized by an apparent constant tension in the muscles, particularly when the muscle is not moving or supporting any weight, such as when it is resting on a table. A high level of detail and definition may also be visually apparent if the person has a low body fat percentage or extremely large muscles. Physically, a gentle squeeze of the muscle itself can reveal its level of tone; if the muscle feels hard to the touch (again, while it is not moving or supporting any weight), then it has good muscle tone. It is important that the muscle being inspected is not moving or supporting any load (including its own weight), because a muscle that is working will naturally appear and feel toned, even if it isn't well-toned at rest. A muscle that exhibits signs of good tone (tension) at rest and not moving or supporting any weight is one that has good tone.

How do you gain muscle tone?

Muscle tone refers to residual muscle tension, which is tension that continues to reside in muscles while relaxed. The only way to gain muscle tone is to work out. This way you train your muscles to be tense even when your muscles are in a relaxed state. You should also make sure that you don't injure your muscles during workouts, apparently this is very bad for muscle tone. Also remember lifting light weights many times do not help with tone as much as lifting heavy, despite what your personal trainer might say. Cardio training is also important to muscle tone. Cardio training gets rid of all the access fat around your muscles making them have a "ripped" look. For more in-depth information and details about how to gain muscle, see the related question and answer, listed further down this page, under Related Questions.
