Posted on February 09 2021
id you pick a beautiful sleeveless t-shirt at a shopping mall yesterday but soon put it back in hanger thinking, you are not ready to go sleeveless yet? I am sure most of you ladies would do this.

Hmm…that sleeveless t-shirt would linger long in your mind but you keep postponing your dreams for sculpted arms…

3. Hold the contraction for a moment and lower the dumbbell to the starting position to complete one rep.

Before I end this blog, would like to share with you all a general information. A reduction in testosterone levels is normal as you age but can make your body store excess fat, rather than building muscles which will show in your arms.
Having a poor diet, like including a high amount of refined grain and sugar can lead to a high amount of calorie intake. Consuming more of sugar-laden foods can increase body insulin. High insulin in the body will let the calories start storing fat rather than being used as energy.
Next time, you crave for a big chocolate bar or a large mug of ice-cream, pasta, think twice or if you are wise enough, remove them from your mind…
