Thanks for posting the link, PhotoChick (as well as the pictures of Shellie - she does look great).
The musings on the meaning of "toned body" and how it came about are interesting. But even if it is technically incorrect, I am sure the word is ingrained in our minds now and everybody will keep continue using it (especially if you see if in all the magazines).

I never understood the fear that weight training will result in bulking up. But then again, I am not your typical female. I DO want to see a nice muscle definition and even if there is a bit of bulk associated with it, I would say 'bring it on'. I always laugh at the assurances (so often found in fitness magazines) that "these exercises won't bulk you up".
