Why lift weights?
Sure, it's now officially sweater season, but that doesn't mean you should neglect lifting weights. Adding more lean muscle is the best way to keep your metabolism humming and shape your figure. Old school free weight exercises and their endless variations make it easy to keep challenging your body, indoors and out. All you need for sexy shoulders and arms is a pair of affordable dumbbells--no gym membership required.
For best results, choose weights that are challenging enough--5 lbs if you are beginning, and 8-10 lbs if you are more experienced. Doing 2 sets of 10-15 reps is a good place to start. Add lunges or squats to your lifts will make them a total body workout.
