I'm looking for a new workout routine, I don't want to get a manly chest and muscles from lifting heavy. Can you get a nice toned body by using Tae-Bo?

I suggest Richard Simmons videos. He knows whats up.

Tae Bo is the best toning workout ever! Like you, I was afraid of developing a manly chest. Heck, I've heard women who lift weights can even get HAIR on their chests. Ew!

You have to buy those Zumba toning sticks (only the 1lb versions unless you want to get beastly) to use with your Tae Bo workout. They're called toning sticks, they MUST work!

But yes you can lose weight with Tae-Bo. You can lose weight with any workout program as long as you have a calorie deficit.

If it says it's for Zumba you damn sure don't want to use them for Tae Bo. Tae Bo and Zumba are mutual lipoplasticizers. They will cause your sacroiliac to produce carbs which will store as fat in your abdominal vessicle.

Omg... Women CAN NOT build muscle like men even while lifting heavy. We simply do not have the hormones to do it. And that hairy chest thing... Lol, only if you take steroids. If you want to do tae Bo, go for it, no one is stopping you, but don't drop the dumbells altogether if you want tone.

You will not get big bulky muscles. It is not in your DNA . You are a woman, what you will find will be tight curves! Plus muscle burns more calories at rest than fat does. To get big bulky, you would need to take testosterone and/or steroids. So work out and enjoy!!

OH MY GOD YOU TROLLS-

Firstly, you said "I dont want to get bulky". Honestly, who do you think you are? Arnold-freaking-swartzeneger? Give me a break! Women who get bulky train HARD, for YEARS, have higher levels of TESTOSTERONE, and DONT GET THAT WAY ON ACCIDENT. You absolutely DO NOT get "bulky" from lifting weights. This idea is both stupid and completely wrong. This is why you've gotten all the hilarious replies.

secondly, ANY program in which you are burning calories and creating a caloric deficit will result in weight loss. Although i'd like to mention that you'd be right on your way to Skinny Fat.

And no one thinks skinny fat is attractive. Trust me. :)

Tae-Bo is going to make you too bulky and men don't like women with muscles. I suggest you stick to Bikram or Pilates or something like that, sweetie.


I really don't like your tone. Ew.

Tae-Bo is an amazing cardio workout and the most they use are 3 pound weights. Women don't get bulky - this drives me crazy. You will get toned and your heart rate will be high doing Tae-Bo. I do it all the time.

It's okay, I'm taking a healthy regimen of raspberry ketones to block my sacroiliac receptors.

Wow. Love the sarcasm on here. You won't get hair on your chest unless you inject steroids. Even "manly" or "bulky" is difficult for a woman to achieve without steroids. Your chest will be just fine, because you have breasts which sit on top of the muscle. They actually start to appear a little bigger and a little perkier if you build up the muscle. I have relatively large biceps from lifting, but they look normal until I flex.

Tae-bo will be mostly cardio with just a little muscle building/maintaining portions to it. As your body fat drops, your muscles will start to look clearer even though you won't be adding much if anything muscle wise.

If you are losing a lot of weight, I would really rethink your ideas on lifting. Adding some muscle really helps with tighter looking skin.

I can tell you tae bo definitely works I used it years back b4 getting pregnant with my son an I lost 70 lbs within six months it also tones. But like someone said you can loose weight with any workout program but if you want to do tae bo I have no complaints on how great it had worked for myselfsmile
September 24, 2012 1:16 PM
wait wait wait....Tae bo makes you bulky? As of right now I'm stopping all squats, deadlifts, and bench presses, and just focusing on kicking a plastic doll. RIPPED DIESEL TIME.

Just because that was the result you had doens't mean the OP will have the same results. Everyone has a completely different physiology from everyone else. No two people are in any way even the slightest bit similar to each other.

90% of the people in this thread are trolling.

You'll lose weight and get toned with Tae-bo if you also keep a calorie deficit. As for the heavy lifting, women do not naturally build muscle like men do. All the pictures of the ultra-fit women with 6-pack abs and huge biceps on Pinterest are fitness models who devote their entire lives to looking like that. They either have naturally high amounts of testosterone (which is RARE), or they take supplements to help them build muscle mass like that.

And I promise you, that as long as you lay of testosterone supplements, you won't end up looking like a man or a fitness model. You'll look lean and healthy.

You may be okay. Keep an eye on it.

If you want to look like Billy Blanks, go ahead and Tae-Bo. If you just want to tone, then I suggest some water aerobics. Being in the water is better on your joints and won't create muscle mass, only tighten the muscles you already have.

Research shows that when you're under water you are entering a different dimension called the aquatic-dimensionpsysism. In this dimension gravity does not exist. Also this causes mermaid to be able to swim pretty fast and not be seen by the human eye. Fairies also live in this dimension. then only reason us humans cant see these creatures is simply because we can't breath underwater. Cohesive and adhesive are also 2 properties of water. (Source: Yahoo! Answers)

Also, if you exercise in water, you only have to eat back the carb calories you burned and not the protein calories because you are so light underwater it only uses the energy calories like carb calories and not the muscle building calories like protein calories.
