You're really only suppose to train 2-3x a week (full body). Your muscles need recovery time to heal and grow. If you don't rest them, it will interrupt this healing process which is where you become stronger and the muscles grow.
I've been training for over a year now and I only train 3x a week. The frequency does not go up, just the amount of weight I use.
The only time you would be training 4+ times a week is if you're concentrating on individual muscle groups each session. In which case, you'd need a well-planned and professionally advised routine to ensure you're giving each muscle group proper rest.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
