    Few points:

    Where is the leg training? I mean real leg training, running/cardio is important but it doesn't count. We're talking squats and deadlifts here.

    What equipment do you have available? This will drastically change what sort of exercises you're able to do. The ideal situation is a gym.

    Toning is largely a myth when applied to exercise. Increasing "tone" is just a buzz-word for losing fat. Losing fat is done in the kitchen by watching what you eat. Have you addressed this? It will make or break your possibility of success.

    As pretentious as this might sound, I am not all that worried about my legs right now....and....I didn't know that about toning, right now I've been told the best ratio is 40% carb 40 % protein, 20% healthy fats. I am trying to figure out how many carbs and grams of protein I need to loose fat.

    I am 5" 11, 190 pounds.

    but thanks for pointing me in some good directions man.

    It doesn't sound pretentious, it just sounds grossly mis-informed. At the most basic level, losing fat is about calories in vs. calories out. The legs are the biggest muscles in the body, and because of this leg exercises aren't only the most challenging exercises but they also require the most energy, and create the biggest hormonal and metabolic response from the body.

    I don't care if you're "not worried about training legs", but you should care. Not only because you'll reach your goals in half the time, but you'll also avoid possible lower back injuries that can stem from neglecting them.

    Read this great thread by Built:

    Every tiny piece of information in that post is worth it's weight in gold.
