Q: Can I speed up my toning results by exercising my trouble spots every day?

A: I'm afraid you can't — and rather than speeding up your results, this could be a recipe for injury! So be careful! Your muscles need a day to recover from resistance exercise. If you work the same muscle group every day, the muscles never get a chance to recover and grow stronger. Worse, you feel sore and tired all the time, which may ruin your motivation.

The point is, mix it up, and allow each body area to recover completely. Your results will come, I promise!
