Home gym work
I had done a lot of research B4 I set up my weight lifting room at home. The hardest part was to pick things I will actually use and not throw clothes on.....Anyway, there are some great books out there & I picked up one I liked called "Sculpting her body perfect" I liked this book because the women are fit and not bulked. It had the info about the alternate day work-outs, but frankly I just do my own thing.
I use a bench and free weights mostly & I do concentrate on mostly upper body with my weights. I do some arm dips, push-ups, sit-ups, and when I want to work legs I put my bar across my shoulders and do lots of lunges & squats. A lot of other fitness work can help with legs too. I run & ride my bike to work my legs. The free weights are the best for working my arms & I do like the way it feels afterward.
Stick with it - even 30 minutes of free weights is a total health boost!
