I want to improve my general condition of fitness and I am interested in toning my arms a bit. Being on a limited budget, I prefer to work out at home, what items should I buy? I was thinking of dumbbells.
Can anybody give me an advice on how much training or working out I should do generally speaking to yield some results? (I do not intend to train for being like a huge bodybuilder, but just get rid of a little fat and tone up my arms) I am 6 ft 2 and weighing 180 lbs and my level of fitness is apart from fairly good muscle strength almost none. I was also thinking of pushups and situps, how many you recommend for achieving my goal?.
A friend told me that you should not exercise every day, because it will make your muscles actually smaller. is this true?
Thank you in advance for any replies
