Build Lean, Sexy Arms at Home
Everyone loves to see well-defined arms, it takes commitment and dedication day in and day out to achieve and keep up. And having lean, built arms is empowering and a definite confidence builder. 

Over 20 years ago, I too used long for a lean, sexy arms, I was intimidated by weights, after all, I’m a woman and I didn’t want big muscles, so I shied away from weight lifting until I learned that women don’t have enough testosterone naturally to create bulky muscles. 

It didn’t take long before I got into weight lifting, and came to love it. My husband and I created a home gym, and I ended up having such outstanding results that I haven’t looked back. Now in my mid 40’s I have leaner arms than I did when I was young or even 10 years ago. I was able to accomplish my fitness dreams in the comfort of my home. 

Benefits of a Home Gym 

Having a home gym saves time and money, and it allows you to work out without interruption. It is great for anyone who wants to sculpt their physique without having to pay for a pricey gym membership or make the drive to and from a gym. I have loved every minute throughout the years I spend in my home gym, and I’m sure you will too.

To create a home gym all you need are a few sets of dumbbells, an incline bench, a full length mirror (to ensure you have proper form while lifting) and a water bottle to stay well hydrated while training. You can add to your gym as you go along and start to see the awesome results of your training.
Make working out fun: I’m a big fan of playing upbeat music when I train; it’s a lot more enjoyable to lift to a high-energy beat than to lift in silence. You may want to listen to motivating music as well while you pump iron.
Below is a quick workout you can do at home.

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
