use weights. the weight which you can lift 30 reps MAX. do 30 x 3 for each exercise. dips, pullups, pushups, etc. just do as many as you can and you'll be good. make sure you drink protein shakes at least 2 times a day, and you'll be good man. good luck!

To tone up means to build muscle. You don't tone up fat. Toning up means you are strenthening/building lean muscle while ideally balancing body composition.

I primarily train high school and collegiate athletes. Have trained mma fighters and a handful of pro athletes. And I can't tell you how many times I have heard people say they easily build "bulky muscle" and yet it has never proven to be the case. I'm not saying this is the case with you but what it usually really ends up meaning is that "I dislike training hard". What are you doing now and what have you done in the past (training wise)?
