In an effort to get back in shape, I bought a cheap weight bench to lift free weights on at home. I already had some weights, so it cost me hardly any money at all. I've always played lower body sports so I have tiny, useless dinosaur arms. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Wait - you play hockey. Don't you need upper body strength for those slap shots?" I answer that with, "Yes, but you have clearly never seen MY slap shot."

During lunch today, I did a round of arm and chest exercises using 10lbs free weights. I now have jelly arms. That's right - from 10 lbs. Sigh.

I really, really need to get my butt in shape! I keep saying I'm going to but I just don't do anything about it. I don't know how to get myself motivated!

Yeah, I actually have been lifting a little everyday for the past week. It really seems to work.

Just start slow.

You could, like me, have what my mother describes as"big German arms".

Push ups, baby is what will define your arms

great job on the weights. I have been trying to tone up my arms, I don't want to look like a pteradactyl (sp?)
