"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I would suggest you pay for a session with a trainer and ask them to design a program for you that you can use on your own.

Along with some of the other suggestions, I would suggest getting some Kettlebell training. You should use caution because it is possible to injure yourself with improper form. See a trainer or take a class

I'm getting back in the habit of working out and finally have access to a gym, and I was wondering what the best/most efficient exercises are for a good, full body strength workout -- specifically compound exercises. I know squats are great, along with lunges, tricep dips, and planks. But what is good for the back? Hamstrings? Shoulders? Any other muscles I'm forgetting LOL. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!
