Hi! I'm in my early 40's and thankfully very young looking. People always think I'm at least 10 years younger. Probably because I never had any kids and don't have too much stress.
Here's my dilemma. All my life I wanted to be strong, particularly upper body strength. My mother fought with me tooth and nail as a teen in the 70's to make absolutely sure I would never get a weight set. She didn't "want me to look like a man".
That would be pretty difficult anyway as I'm almost 5'4" and I'm currently the heaviest I've ever been - 123 lbs.
As a result my upper body was never developed. I was free to run and develop my leg strength but not my chest and arms. Now it's ridiculous, even more petite women who never exercised have better, thicker arms and pecs than I do. I don't feel right in sleeveless shirts or at the beach.
I cannot afford a gym, so please don't suggest that. I need training, food and supplement advice that is going to work for skinny me that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars.
I already take vitamin supplements. I used to do some martial arts, that didn't give me bigger arms.
