    "build muscle" is used for when someone is trying to get bigger muscles, and "to tone your muscles" is used when someone simply wants for the muscles to be more visible but not necessarily bigger.
    So for example:
    I am trying to build more muscle.
    I am trying to tone my muscles.

    Hi.

    I agree with Janis.

    The people who do it (physical culturists) often say "to build muscle definition"
